This Cross Body Bag is made up of using the waistcoat (or knit) stitch and creates a super simple texture that you will love. And the fact that it's made with super bulky yarn means incredibly fast work-up.
It's the perfect cross-body purse and pairing it with beautiful suede leather and antique brass notions? It will possibly be your favorite combo!
Brass Ring Purse
Glitter spun yarn in black and red make this a nice purse that's sure to turn heads wherever you go. This Brass Ring Purse is a stylish crocheted bag that's easy to crochet. The brass handles complement the circular design of the bag. There's no need to spend your hard earned money at the mall on a new purse when you can crochet your own homemade bag with free crochet patterns like this one.
Crochet And Leather Handbag
"This crochet and leather hand bag is a very simple design for a very elaborate sounding concept. Don't worry, it's really simple though. If you can draw a straight line with a ruler, squeeze a hole punch and crochet some very basic stitches, you can make a ton of cool leather nd crochet projects. Why leather and crochet? Some items like purses get the most wear in specific places, like the bottom. Leather in those spots means a longer life span of your bag etc, but it also adds another design element that totally changes the aesthetic. So besides a great look and longer life of your item, it's really fun and challenging!"
Leather and Crochet Tote
Forget the time old combo of leather and lace. Crochet and leather is where it is at! If you are on the hunt for a brand new purse, consider using your crochet skills to make this trendy crochet tote bag pattern. The Leather and Crochet Tote tutorial shows you how to crochet the base of the bag before adding simple leather straps to the final product. Crocheted in two colors of yarn, this pattern looks dip dyed and ready for a day on the town.
"This Knit-Like Pouch is a free crochet pattern on my website. It is much easier to crochet than it might look. And yes it's crocheted with the waistcoat stitch, which is also known as the crochet knit stitch. Add a little button to the front and the pattern is complete for you to enjoy as your notions or accessory (or nicknacks) pouch. With this design, I will teach you how to crochet the beautiful waistcoat stitch."
Capulin Cross Body Bag
Earlier this summer I got to spend some time in the southwest of the US, and that trip inspired the Capulin Cross Body Bag! The Capulin Cross Body Bag is made using the tapestry technique - you crochet over the unused yarn, and then switch colors (repeatedly) over the course of each round, creating images and shapes! A video tutorial is included for all the techniques used in this pattern. I hope you enjoy it!
