This tutorial will guide you through creating a stylish and functional crochet bag using the beautiful Tulip Stitch pattern. The Tulip Stitch creates a textured and visually appealing design that resembles a row of delicate tulip flowers. This bag will not only be a practical accessory but also a fashion statement.

Materials Needed:

  • Worsted weight yarn in your desired color (Main Color)
  • A smaller amount of a contrasting color yarn (for the tulip petals)
  • Crochet hook appropriate for your yarn weight
  • Scissors
  • Yarn needle
  • Stitch markers (optional)

Finished Size: The finished size of the bag will depend on your yarn choice and hook size. As a reference, the bag could be approximately 10 inches in width and 12 inches in height, excluding the handles.

Tulip Stitch: The Tulip Stitch is created using a combination of stitches, typically double crochets and chains, to form the shape of a tulip.



  1. Start by chaining a multiple of your choice (e.g., chain 40).
  2. Double crochet in the 4th chain from the hook. Double crochet in each chain across.
  3. Chain 2, turn. Double crochet in each stitch across. Repeat this row until the base is your desired width.


  1. Chain 3 (counts as a double crochet), turn.
  2. In the first stitch, work a tulip stitch. Skip the next 2 stitches, then work another tulip stitch in the next stitch. Repeat this pattern across the row.
  3. Chain 3, turn. Work a tulip stitch in the first space between tulip stitches from the previous row. Continue this pattern across the row.
  4. Repeat Step 3 until the body of the bag is your desired height (e.g., 12 inches).


  1. Attach your contrasting color yarn at one corner of the bag.
  2. Chain 1, single crochet in the same space and in each stitch across until you reach the opposite corner of the bag.
  3. Chain 1, turn. Single crochet in each stitch across.
  4. Repeat Step 3 for a few rows, or until the handles reach your desired width.
  5. Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Finishing: Fold the crocheted piece in half with the right sides facing each other. Seam the sides using your yarn needle and the main color yarn.

Optional Embellishments: You can add a button or a zipper closure, a fabric lining, or even crochet some tulip appliqués to sew onto the bag for extra flair.

Remember, this tutorial is a basic guideline. Feel free to adapt the pattern to your preferences, changing colors, sizes, or adding your creative touches.

Enjoy creating your Crochet Tulip Stitch Bag! It’s a wonderful project that combines both style and functionality.
