Crochet Chevron Tulip Bag Free Pattern

Namaste Friends 🙏,

Hope you and your loved ones are in the pink of health and enjoying beautiful weather.

Mumbai is sweltering and we are desperately waiting for the rains.

I am on a stash busting spree and decided to use my worsted wt yarn to make a bag.

Ever thought you could make a bag with one granny square? Yes, that's right this bag is made with only one granny square. And if you use two or more colours, it brings out the chevron pattern in the bag beautifully!

So let's begin,
 
Skill Level:    Easy                    

Size:  Bag measures approximately 16 inches wide and 16 inches tall
.          .
          The handle measures around 21 inches after being attached.
Materials:
·        Yarn -  Worsted weight cotton yarn* around 225 gms/ approx. 8 oz OR
          (75 gms of each colour if using 3 colours)  
·        Hooks - US 7 (4.50 mm),*   UK 7
.        Stitch Markers - 4  (Check out these super-cute markers on Etsy*)
.        Scissors*
.        Yarn needle*
.        Buttons - 4* (optional)
     
Notes:
·        This pattern uses US terminology.
·        Ch 3 at beginning of the round counts as stitch. 
.        The last corner on each round is made with (ch 1, sc) instead of ch 2.

Abbreviations: 
beg – beginning,  
ch - chain,  
st - stitch,
sk - skip
sp - space
sl st - slip stitch
nxt - next,
sc – single crochet, 
dc - double crochet
dc2tog - double crochet 2 stitches together
 

Instructions:  

The Base:

Ch 5, join with sl st to form a ring. OR use the magic ring.

Round 1:  Using colour A - Ch 3, working into the ring - 3dc, (ch 2, 4dc) 3 times, ending with ch 1, sc into 3rd ch of beg ch. (16 dc, 4 corner spaces)

Round 2: Ch 3, dc into sp below sc, * dc in each st across, in nxt ch-2 sp work (2dc, ch 2, 2dc), rep from *   3 times ending with 2 dc in last sp, ch 1, sc into 3rd ch of beg ch. (32 dc)

Rounds 3 to 9: Rep Round 2. In each round you will be increasing by 16 stitches.

Work the above rounds to get a base of your desired size. 

Feel free to make more or less rounds as required, as it will depend on the yarn you are using.


The Sides:

Round 10: In this round we will pinch the centre of each side to form an additional "corner".

Count the number of stitches on each side and divide by 2.  Since I worked 9 rounds I have 36 stitches on each side. Now place a marker between the 18th and the 19th dcs, repeat on the other 3 sides. As shown in the pic below:

Your base may have a different number of stitches depending on how many rounds you made for your base. Now let's begin,

Ch 3, dc in sp below sc, *dc in next 15 sts, dc2tog in the next 2 sts, sk nxt 2 sts (ie. the 2 sts on either side of the marker), dc2tog in the nxt 2 sts, dc in nxt 15 sts, in nxt ch-2 sp work (2dc, ch 2, 2dc), rep from * 3 times, ending with 2dc in the last sp, ch1, sc in 3rd ch of beg ch 3.

Rounds 11 to 16: Using colour B repeat Round 10.

Rounds 17 to 22: Using colour C repeat Round 10.

Round 23: Ch 1, sc in each st around working 3 sc in the ch-2 sps in the corners. Fasten off. Weave in all yarn ends using yarn needle.

The Handles:

Since I had a lot of yarn to consume I made yarn handles.

 
Row 1: Using colour A, ch 91, sk 1, sc in each st till the end. Fasten off. (90 sc)
Row 2: Using colour C, attach yarn with sl st in 1st sc, ch 1, sc in each st till end. Fasten off.
Row 3: Using colour B repeat Row 2. Fasten off, Weave in all ends using yarn needle. 
Attach the handles by threading the ends through the corner spaces, fold about an inch, and stitch together. 
Repeat for the second handle.
I added the buttons later just as a design feature.

Next time I am going to try Tunisian crochet for the handles.
