Hey everyone! I pulled out the crochet hook for this free crochet satchel pattern today. It is the perfect size for kids! This crochet satchel pattern is an easy project that works up very quickly and would make the perfect gift for your little one.
Supplies needed to make your own crochet satchel pattern:
Row 1: Start with a chain of 22 ch stitches. Work a dc into the second chain from the hook, dc in the next 20 st (20 total dc stitches).
Row 2: Turn, ch 2, dc back loop only until you reach the end of the first row, ending with a dc stitch (20 total dc stitches).
Row 3: Turn, ch 2, dc front loop only until you reach the end of the row, ending with a dc stitch (20 total dc stitches).
Row 4-28: Repeat Row 2 & 3. Finish off, weave in ends.
Strap: Start with a chain of 98. Work a dc into the second chain from the end, dc into the next 96 stitches. Finish off, weave in ends.
Step Three. Weave in any loose ends of yarn.
Step Four. (Optional) Add embellishments like leather, clasps and charms.
I loved personalizing this bag with a few strips of leather woven into the crochet stitches. Adding a clip on lanyard with a variety of charms made this a hit with my guy too! He has already been toting this around the playground and filling it with all sorts of treasures.
