Tender Queen B Fringe Bag Free Crochet Pattern
by Kristin Omdahl
Decadent, chic and wildly bohemian, this super fun and easy bag pattern is sure to please! Make one for yourself and the fashion divas on your gift list this holiday season.
Begin at the base with narrow rows of single crochet, then wrap the body with rounds of double crochet through the back loop only to make adding the fringe incredibly simple.
Adding a pre-made bag, inside-out, for lining takes all the fuss out of lining a bag. Handles are sewn on with yarn in a couple of minutes.
What you will need:
(3) balls of Be So Tender Yarn, shown in denim
(1) Kristin Omdahl organic cotton drawstring project bag (12″ x 12″)
(2) wooden purse handles
H/8 (5mm) crochet hook
Gauge: 3 sts = 1″, but gauge is not critical for this project
Finished size: Bag is 9″ high x 12″ wide before handles or fringe. The finished bag is 12″ wide x 14″ tall
Row 1: Ch4, sc in 2nd ch from hook and ea ch across, turn. — 3 sts
Row 2: ch1, sc in ea sc across, turn. — 3 sts
Rows 3 – 33: rep row 2
Round 1: ch3 (counts as dc), 1dc-tbl in ea of next 2 sts, working along end of rows, 1dc in ea of the 33 end of rows, working along beg ch of base row 1, 1dc in ea of next 3 cos, working along end of rows, 1dc in ea of the 33 end of rows, slst to top of ch3 at beg of round to join. — 72 dcs
Round 2: ch3 (counts as dc), 1dc-tbl in ea st around, slst to top of ch3 at beg of round to join. — 72 dcs
Rounds 3 – 15: rep row 2.
Rounds 16: slst in back loop of ea st around.
Rounds 17 – 18: rep row 16. Fasten off.
Cut fringe pieces 8″ long. Using 2 strands of fringe at a time, tie them to each free loop around on the following rounds of the bag: rounds 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15.
Turn lining bag inside out (so the logo is on the inside and the exposed seams are on the outside). Cut the drawstring ties and remove them from the bag’s flaps. Turn the flaps outward to be folded against the side with the exposed seams.
Insert the lining bag inside the crochet bag. It should line up 1/2″ below the top edge of the crochet bag. Pin in place. With needle and thread, sew in place.
