This pattern has been rewritten and updated.

Quick Woven Bag Crochet Pattern perfect for Beginners.

Quick Woven Bag Crochet Pattern

This project is worked widthwise in rows.

Using your 5 mm (H) crochet hook, or size required for gauge:

R1: Ch 50, sk the first ch, 1 sc in the next ch. *Ch 1, sk the next ch, 1 sc in the next ch**. Work from * to ** across. Ch 1, turn. [25 sc, 24 ch1sp]

R2: 1 sc in the first st. * 1sc in the next ch1sp, ch 1, sk the next st**. Work from * to ** across to the last ch1sp. 1 sc in the ch1sp, 1 sc in the last st. Ch 1, turn. [26 sc, 23 ch1sp]

R3: 1 sc in the first st. *Ch 1, sk the next st, 1 sc in the next ch1sp**. Work from * to ** across to the last 2 sc. Ch 1, sk the next st, 1 sc in the last st. Ch 1, turn. [ 25 sc, 24 ch1sp]

Rep R2 and R3 until your project measures approximately 23.5 inches long (60 cm long). For this yarn and hook 80 rows were worked in total.

Proceed to finishing instructions.

How to Crochet the Woven Stitch

Tube Strap for Your Quick Woven Bag

R1: Ch 101, sk the first ch, 1 sc in the next ch and each rem ch across. Ch 1, turn. [100 sc]

R2: 1 sc in each st across. Ch 1, turn. [100 sc]

R3: 1 sc in each st across. Do not turn. Fold in half and working through both layers make 1 sl st in each st in R3 and the corresponding (lined up once folded) base of the foundation ch from R1 across (this creates a tube). 

Proceed to finishing instructions. 

Fold and Seam the Side Edges

Finishing Instructions

  • Fold your quick woven bag in half and sew the 2 short edges (side edges) together using your preferred seaming method. I recommend a whipstitch seam.
  • You may wish to work a final round of single crochet around the top opening of the bag. Work 1 sc in every sc and in every ch1sp. Finish off with a slip stitch and weave in your ends.
  • Sew the Tube Strap to the bag along the 2 short edge seams.
  • Weave in any remaining ends.
  • Add an optional zipper closure to the top of the bag or even a pretty fabric liner if you wish. 
Quick Woven Crochet Bag Pattern perfect for Beginners.
You can use any yarn and hook to make this project!
  1. With the yarn and hook you’ve chosen for the project, chain until you reach the width you’d like for your bag; or chain until your width measures approximately 12 inches.
  2. Check that your number of chains can be divided by 2 evenly (to match the stitch multiple).
  3. Follow the pattern as written, repeating R2 and R3.
  4. Continue crocheting until your project is the length you would like it to be, or until it measures approximately 24 inches long.
  5. Fold the bag in half and sew the 2 side edges together, on each side (using a whipstitch seam). Leave the top of the bag open.
  6. Work an optional round of single crochet stitches along the top opening of the bag to give it a tidy edge (make 1 sc in each sc and in each ch1sp).
  7. Finish off and weave in your ends.
  8. Create the Tube Strap by chaining until you reach a length of 24 inches (or your desired strap length). Follow the pattern for the Tube Strap as written. 
  9. Finish off leaving a tail for adding the strap to the bag on the two side edges along the side seam.
  10. Weave in any remaining ends.
