An Almost Round Bag – PA-219
A crochet pattern from Nancy Brown-Designer
August 1, 2017


This is an easy to make crocheted bag that is almost a circle. Working back and forth from the center starting point, the pattern creates its own gusset. Simply make a front and a back and crochet the two pieces together on the last row. Add a top, shoulder strap and four crocheted buttons and you have an eye-catching little tote bag that is simple enough for a novice crocheter.


Size: Approximately 11″ at its widest part and 8″ in depth with a 2″ gusset.
Skill Level: Beginner.
Materials: “Super Value” (a worsted weight or size 4 yarn) from Bernat Yarns. Crochet hooks, U.S. sizes H and I.
Please note: Instructions come in an easy to read, easy to understand pattern and are written in U.S. crochet terminology.

The Yarn

“Super Saver” is Red Heart’s best-selling yarn and for a good reason. This wonderful craft yarn comes in a huge choice of colors as well as a beautiful array of multi-colors. I love that it comes in 7oz balls of approximately 364 yards. It is a sturdy, durable yarn that is machine washable and dryable. Great for making purses, bags and home décor.

A Nice Yarn Service

With yarn and craft supplies being a little hard to come by in this day and age, provides a nice service by selling the pattern and the yarn all on one site. They do a really nice job of supporting their Indie (independent) Designers, of which I am one, and their customer service is excellent.

Thank You For Reading My Post

I hope I have inspired you to pick up your yarn and hook. Crochet just seems to be the perfect venue for accessories, and one of my favorite things to crochet are bags and purses. Having  been in fashion for a while, and it looks as if they will remain, make your fashion statement with a crocheted bag or purse.
