Crocheted Mini Knot Bag

Crocheted Mini Knot Bag

Hello everyone! Welcome to the blog. As I have discussed in some of my more recent social media posts one request that I receive from time to time is for patterns that are quick to make and popular at craft markets or in their shops. I really love this Mini Knot Bag pattern for just that. This is a one skein project that I am able to work up in about 2.5 - 3 hours. The design of the stitching gives it a beautiful texture yet remains easy enough for beginners. To make this bag I use Lion Brand 24/7 cotton yarn. It measures approximately 7.5 inches wide and 7 inches tall. I hope you will enjoy this project as much as I do!

Foundation Chain & Round 1: Chain 36. 1 SC in 2nd CH from hook and in each ST to the end of the row. Turn your work and place 1 SC in each ST down the backside of the foundation chain row. SL ST to the first SC made and CH 1. (70 SC made). 

*The CH 1 at the beginning of each round will not count in the ST count.

Rounds 2-16: Place 2 HDC in 1st ST of round. SK next 2 STS. ** 1 SC, 2 HDC in next ST. SK next 2 STS. Repeat from the ** to the end of the round, ending with 1 SC, 1 HDC in last ST. Join to the 1st SC of the round with a SL ST and CH 1. (70 STS, per round)

Round 17: 1 SC in each ST around. Fasten off, weave in all ends. (70 SC made)

When working the straps the last SC of the row may be tight/difficult to stitch in for some makers. If so, simply place the last SC of the row up under the turning chains instead.

Small Strap: 

*Leave a long starting tail of yarn for sewing. 

CH 12

Row 1: 2 HDC in 3rd CH from hook. SK next 2 STS. 1 SC, 2 HDC next ST. SK next 2 STS. Repeat to end of row placing 1 SC in last ST. CH 2 turn.

Rows 2-23: 2 HDC in 1st ST. SK next 2 STS. 1 SC, 2 HDC next ST. SK next 2 STS. Repeat to end of row placing 1 SC in last ST. CH 2 turn.

After Row 23, CH1 and turn the strap. Work 1 SC all the way around the strap, placing 2 SC in each corner. SL ST to the 1st SC made and fasten off, leaving a long tail of yarn for sewing.

Large Strap: 

*Leave a long starting tail of yarn for sewing. 

CH 12

Row 1: 2 HDC in 3rd CH from hook. SK next 2 STS. 1 SC, 2 HDC next ST. SK next 2 STS. Repeat to end of row placing 1 SC in last ST. CH 2 turn.

Finishing:  

  1. If you haven’t done so already, turn the bag right-side out. Begin by attaching the large strap on the left side of the bag as it faces you. ** Align one end of the strap with the top edge of the bag. Pin in place if needed. Using one of the tails of yarn for sewing begin to sew the strap along the top of the bag to secure in place. I sew the strap to the bag across the front and then across the backside. Once secure, weave in the yarn tail and trim away excess yarn. Flip the bag over and align the other end of the strap to the top edge (directly opposite of the end you just attached). Sew in place. Once secure, weave in the yarn tail and trim away excess yarn.
  2. Next, attach the small strap on the right side of the bag as it faces you. Repeat step 1 from the ** to secure the small strap to the bag.
  3. To close the bag, pass the large strap through the loop of the small strap. 

Finished! I hope you enjoy your Mini Knot Bag. Thank you for stitching along with me!
