Crochet Lovely Granny Square Bag Free Pattern: The Inspiration

This crochet bag is both delicate and lovely. It features the Buttercup Flower Square I designed a few weeks ago. This unique crochet square is very cute, and it creates a really nice little square that can be used for a multitude of projects.

I used this little square for the Buttercup Flower Headband which is so pretty and delicate! Indeed, this new headband design is one of my favorite to date. It looks dainty and is perfect for the Spring and Summer. I really wanted to use this square again for more projects.

If you are looking for fun and breezy crochet accessories don’t forget to check out this lovely scrunchie design. This scrunchie has been very popular since it’s release. Also, if you enjoy granny square hairbands, have a little look at this granny square headband from a few weeks ago.

This new crochet bag features this little square in three different colors. These pastel colors look so pretty together! The design of the bag is very simple too (a square). Two straps are then added to the project, at the very end.

Crochet Lovely Granny Square Bag Free Pattern: The Yarn

For this project I used Drops Muskat yarn, which is one of my favorite yarns. This yarn is perfect for accessories such as bags and headbands for example. Cotton yarn is very durable and resistant, making it a great option if you want to make hard wearing crochet accessories.

A few weeks ago, I crocheted this easy tote bag with this yarn. I also crocheted this puff flower purse with Drops Muskat yarn. This yarn is so pretty, and it is very reasonably priced too. I enjoy using it for many different projects.

The Lovely Flower Headband is also crocheted with this yarn, and to this day I love this headband so much! The Flower Granny Square Headband from a few months ago is also crocheted with this lovely and durable yarn.

I hope you enjoy this new crochet tutorial. I certainly enjoyed making this new bag featuring these little squares stitched together.

General notes concerning this pattern

For this project, you will need to crochet all of your Buttercup Flower squares as explained below. Once all your squares are crocheted, you will be placing them as explained below; you will then be sewing these squares together to create the front and back panels.

Once these are created, these will be sewed to create bag shape. The top edging will then be crocheted in the round, and the two straps will also be directly crocheted onto the bag.

Pattern begins here

For this part you will be crocheting 6 squares in each color (meaning 6 squares in shade Light Yellow, 6 squares in shade Peach, and 6 squares in shade Desert Rose.

Make a slip knot.

Ch 4, sl st to 1st chain to create a circle into which we will be working.

Note: you can use the magic circle to begin if you prefer.

Round 1: Ch 1 (=does not count as a stitch), place 4 SCs inside the circle you made. Slip stitch to the first ch 1 to close off round.

Note: Make sure you fasten in your loose end under your stitches, so that you can pull this loose end to tighten original circle made of 4 chains or magic circle.

Round 2

Ch 3 (=DC), place 4 DCs into the same st (= 5 DCs total in 1st st), ch 1; * 5 DC into next st, ch1, repeat from * 3 more times. Make sure you finish with a ch 1.

Sl st to first ch 1 to finish off round.

Round 3

Note: We will be placing this round’s stitches in between the clusters of 5 DCs from previous round (=the petals from previous round).

The term β€œspace” I will be using for this round refers to the chain 1 space between the clusters of 5 DCs from previous round.

Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work, place 2 DC, ch 2, 3 DC into space from previous round (=1st corner); * [skip next petal from previous round (=5 DC cluster) and go directly into next space with 3 DC, ch 2, 3 DC.

Sew squares together so as to create front and back panels (which are identical)

Place your squares following the photo below:

Sew these squares like so

You will be sewing the squares together with a tapestry needle and piece of yarn (I used shade Peach for this part).

Once you have sewed the front panel, make the back panel following the same process and pattern.

Once you have created both panels, place both symmetrically on top of each other.

Attach yarn to one corner, sewing the first side, then the bottom of the bag, and finally the next side. Leave the top opening not sewed.

Place these 2 panels on top of each other

Attach yellow yarn to one corner stitch (it doesn’t matter which stitch it is).

Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as a stitch), place HDC into first stitch; place a HDC into next stitch until end of round. Slip stitch to first HDC to close off round.

Fasten off yarn; attach shade Desert Rose yarn.

Round 2: Ch 1 (=SC), place SC into next stitch until end of round. Slip stitch to first ch 1 to close off round.

Your bag should still be the β€œwrong” side facing (this is the inside of the bag):

Attach yarn to a stitch approximately 1” from the top and 1st side of the bag (as seen in the photo below).

Chain 95; making sure you don’t twist the chain, attach chain to the other side of the bag by slip stitching through a stitch.

Chain 2 (=HDC), HDC into the next chain until end of chain. Slip stitch to first stitch on the other side of bag.

Fasten off; go back into each side of the straps with tapestry needle and yarn to secure each side of the straps.
