Crochet round handbag - free pattern

Pin It

Hi all, how are you? I haven't been here in ages. I had taken a break for about a month to visit my parents after 2 years. As always, getting back to blogging after a break is so tedious. I haven't read any blog posts and am clueless as to what's happening in the blogland. I know blog has taken a backseat but there are still many of you out there who sill update regularly. Anyway, here I am with yet another bag pattern which has a gorgeous textured flower in it. It's one of my favorites so far. 

Before going to the pattern I'm excited to announce that I'm on Youtube now. Yes, I made a video tutorial of this bag. Right now this is my only video available but I do hope to build my library soon, of course, with your continued support and motivation.

 Ridge around the petals

Join yarn at the base of any petal (the post of any stitch in the 2nd round), ch 1, work 2 sc in each st horizontally on the post moving up along the last st of the petal in each round, work 3 sc at the top st, move to the other side and work 3 sc in the top st, move down the petal working 2 sc along the post of the each fpdc st forming the edge of the petal. When you reach the st at the bottom of the petal move to the next petal and repeat working sc along the edges of each petal until you reach where you started. Cut off yarn and weave in the loose ends.


Assembling and finishing

Place the right side of both the pieces together and starting from one end join the bpdc sts together working sc sts through the double thickness of both the pieces to the other end. Turn the right side out. Attach the handles to the top of the bag.

I hope you enjoyed this pattern.
