"The Tricolor Tote has so many fun details - changing stitch patterns, fun tassels, braided handles - but its soft color palette and orderly structure bring balance to this fast and fun (and free!) crochet pattern! The Tricolor Tote was designed using Lion Brand Fast-Track, which is a really fun and unique yarn! Soft cotton/poly blend in a tape-like shape, it’s like crocheting with your favorite t-shirts. And I love the look it gives projects! This tote is also another pattern on my never-ending search for the ideal bag handles. I’ve tried many different methods over the years, but I think this is the first time I’ve tried braids! This yarn lends itself really well to these braided handles, with only a tiny bit of stretch, lots of strength, and some great color play that ends in tassels! If this handle style isn’t to your taste, you can always add pre-purchased handles, or crochet your own using the linked tutorial!"
We all have busy lives with a million places to be, and even more things to do. It’s hard to stay organized. But with the Color Block Boho Bag, you can get everything done and look good while doing it. This tote bag is spacious and flexible enough to hold books, your laptop, or a towel and some sunscreen. It could even hold a picnic for your day at the farm. We made our Color Block Boho Bag in a beautiful tricolor, but you can make your bag in whatever colors you want!

It’s that time of year again when I’m ready to break out the cotton yarn and make myself a dozen different crochet bags. After all, one can never have too many bags, especially tote bags! I consider tote bags to be a summer essential… who am I kidding? I use my crochet tote bags all year round. Why do I historically design new tote bags this time of year? I think it’s because I’m being optimistic that, eventually, spring and summer will arrive here in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Maybe it’s my way of willing the warmer weather to come, or maybe I just love my growing collection of bags.
