Crochet Along: Sweet Summer Crochet Handbag
This free crochet purse pattern is a delight for summer! As a past CAL, there are even detailed instructions in parts to make it easy to follow.
We're always excited to host new things and we thought a crochet along (aka CAL) for a gorgeous bag was going to get you pumped.
We've joined forces with Bergere de France to bring you this fun Crochet Along. We're excited you're here and checking out all the fun and we hope you'll join in on your own time.
We love this summery bag and it's a fun project to welcome the changing seasons for warmer weather.
Please note that this CAL was originally released in 2016 and is now complete and ready for anyone to follow at their own pace.
Designed for spring 2016, the AllFreeCrochet Crochet Along, the Sweet Summer Crochet Handbag uses three basic stitch patterns, custom seamless transitions, and bright, light yarn to achieve the perfect summertime crochet tote.
Sweet Summer Bag Pattern
The chosen colors resemble a sandy shore and sweet tropical fruit, and its small size makes it the perfect summer companion. Best of all, this darling crochet bag is lined, so all your summertime essentials will be safe and sound.
If you love the look of this brightly accented bag half as much as we do, you'll find yourself with a new favorite crochet bag at the end of these four weeks (or however quickly or slowly you'd like to work up this lovely design)!
