Crochet this cute crossbody bag in 30 minutes!

Abbreviations 

Ch – chain; Dc – double chain; sl – slip St/s – stitch/es;

You’ll need

  • 200-300g T-shirt yarn
  • 10mm crochet hook

To make

  1. Make a magic circle and 6dc into the centre. Sl st to close.
  2. Round 1: Ch1. 2dc into each st, sl st to close.
  3. Round 2: Ch1.*1dc into first st, 2dc into next st*, repeat *-* 5 times more. Sl st to close.
  4. Round 3: Ch1. *1dc into each of next 2sts, 2dc into next st*, repeat *-* 5 times more. Sl st to close.
  5. Round 4: Ch 1. *1dc into each of next 3 sts, 2dc into next st*, repeat *-* 5 times more. Sl st to close.
  6. Round 5: Ch1. *1dc into each of next 4sts, 2dc into next st*, repeat *-* 5 times more. Sl st to close.
    Bind off.
  7. Make another circle exactly the same, but do not bind off. Holding the completed circles against each other, wrong sides facing and seams aligned, join together by working one sl st through both the back loops only of both circles. Continue all around, slip stitching through the back loops until you are three quarters of the way around the bag.
  8. Ch60 (this is the length of your strap, so if you need to adjust for the height of the wearer, do so by adding chains). Attach the other end of the handle by slip stitching into the starting point in the previous step. Bind off all loose ends.
