Chunky Granny Bag Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Chunky Granny Bag Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs

I have gotten many requests for a more 
sturdier Shopping bag, lately.
I came up with a really easy and sturdy bag, 
that can hold up to heavier items.

The Bag can be made from a Bulky (5 or 6) yarn
 or made holding 2 strands of Med (4) together. 
It can be made from Cotton, Cotton bland or Acrylic yarns.
 It's really your preference and what you have in your
 yarn stash.

One is made using Chunky Caron Cakes and 
One us made using Yarn Bee Cotton XXL

Please Add This Crochet Pattern to Your Ravelry Favorites

Skill: Easy

Crochet Hook - N / 9.00MM
Yarn – Bulky (5) Cotton yarn (10. 5 oz. total)
            I used Yarn Bee Cotton XXL (Butter Cream, Celadon,  Lilac Hint)
            You may also use 2 strands held together of a Cotton (4)
Yarn Needle with a large eye
Large Button of Choice - 1.5 to 2 inches

Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (slst)
Single Crochet (sc)
Double crochet (dc)
Space (sp)
Stitch (st)

Size: 13 inches tall and 24 inches around, not counting the handle.

Ch1 Does not Count as a sc.
Ch3 Counts as a dc
Rounds are joined to the ch 3 with a slst
When Changing colors, Ch3 After the Color Change
Color changes at R: 6 and R: 11

R: 1 – Ch 29, 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook,
1 sc in each ch across,

Turn Working down the opposite side of the Chain,
1 sc in each ch across, join to the 1st sc, ch 3
(28 + 28 = 56 sc)

R: 2 – 1 dc in the next sc,
*Ch 1, Sk the next sc, 1 dc in the next 2 dc*
Repeat From * to * around, join,
Slst to the 1st ch 1 sp, ch 3
(19 sets of 2 dc, 18 ch1)

R: 3 - 1 dc in the same ch 1 sp as ch3,
*Ch 1, Sk the next cluster, 2 dc in the next ch1 sp*
Repeat From * to * around, join,
Slst to the 1st ch 1 sp, ch 3
(19 sets of 2 dc, 18 ch1)

R: 4 – R: 13 – Repeat R: 3

You will notice that the joins will move father round the bag for each row.
Don’t worry, it’s supposed to do that.

Add More rows if a longer bag is needed.

R: 14 – 1 dc in each dc and ch1 sp around, join, ch 1
(56 dc)

R: 15 – 1 sc in each sc around, join, tie off weave in your ends.
(56 sc)

 tie off weave in your ends.

With 2 strands of your yarn, join yarn to one side of the top of the bag, 
making sure it is centered, ch 30, 
attach handle on the other side of the bag, with a slst,
slst in the next st, turn, ch1 and  sc back across the ch,
Join to the sc next to the beginning slst, tie off.
Weave in all your ends securely.

Button Loop - Cut a 10 inch piece of yarn, center and slide through the top
 of the bag to form a loop, make sure to tie to the inside of the bag, trim off extra yarn.
Line up button on the front of the bag and sew in place with matching yarn.

It's a perfect for shopping, going to the beach or pool, 
going to the library, 
a project bag or as your handbag.
