Crochet Tote Bag Description:

A crochet tote bag is a versatile and stylish accessory that you can create with your own hands. It’s perfect for carrying your essentials, whether you’re heading to the beach, the farmer’s market, or just out for a day of shopping. The beauty of a crochet tote bag lies in its customizable design. You can choose your favorite yarn colors and stitch patterns to make it uniquely yours.

Materials Needed:

  1. Worsted weight yarn in your choice of colors.
  2. A crochet hook appropriate for your yarn (usually size H/5mm or I/5.5mm works well).
  3. Yarn needle for weaving in ends.
  4. Scissors.

Crochet Tote Bag Pattern:

Note: This pattern creates a simple single crochet tote bag with a solid color. You can customize the size, color, and stitch pattern to your liking.


  1. Start with a slip knot and chain (ch) any multiple of 2 stitches until you reach your desired width. For example, chain 32 for a bag that’s approximately 12 inches wide.
  2. Single crochet (sc) into the second chain from the hook. Continue to sc into each chain across. You should have the same number of stitches as your initial chain. This forms the base of your bag.
  3. Chain 1 and turn your work.
  4. Repeat step 2 for as many rows as you want for the base of your bag. This will give your tote its depth.


  1. Chain 1 and turn your work.
  2. Single crochet into each stitch across the row.
  3. Continue to repeat step 2 until your bag reaches your desired height, leaving a few rows for the handles.


  1. To create the handles, fold your bag in half and mark where you want your handles to start and end. Usually, this is about 1/4 of the total width from each edge.
  2. Join your yarn at one marked point, chain a length that feels comfortable for your handle, and attach it to the other marked point with a slip stitch. Make sure the handle is not too tight or too loose.
  3. Repeat for the second handle.


  1. Fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.
  2. Optionally, you can add a lining to your bag if you’d like extra durability.
  3. Your crochet tote bag is now ready to use! Fill it with your essentials and enjoy.

Feel free to customize your crochet tote bag by adding embellishments, pockets, or using different stitch patterns. Crocheting offers endless possibilities for creativity, so have fun making your unique tote bag!
