Need the perfect Summer Bag? Then, I think that I have the perfect crochet pattern for you! Why not make my Boho Circle Bag?
About the Design –
I wanted to make a bag that was made completely out of a bunch of Granny Squares. I decided to use my Circle Granny Square Pattern and use that as my base. It took 10 Granny Squares to come up with the desired design and size that I wanted.
To attach the granny squares, I used the ‘Slip Stitch’ Method. I have a complete Youtube video tutorial for that if you would like to watch! Find it HERE
I used Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton for this bag and it worked up like a dream! This cotton yarn is the absolute best yarn to make bags out of! The texture and everything is perfect.
I also used a special stitch for the straps. I wanted a stitch that would hold up well, be durable and not stretch too much. The Thermal Stitch was the perfect fit. I also have a full video and picture tutorial of the thermal stitch if you want a more in depth tutorial for that. You can find it HERE

Cut yarn and weave in all ends and repeat rounds 1 – 7 until you have 10 squares completed
You will now have to join all the granny squares, I prefer to join mine using the Slip Stitch method. Find a tutorial for that HERE
Here is how you will need to arrange your granny squares –
Once you have attached all the squares this way, flip the piece upside down with the wrong side facing you
Fold the bottom side up and match the top 2 granny squares
Now fold the 2 squares on the side in half and finish joining them
Once the squares are all joined, be sure to weave in all ends
Straps – WIth 3.50mm Hook and Ecru yarn – Make 2
Row 1: ch 9 st, sc in 2nd st from hook and in each st across (8)
Row 2: ch 1, t, work a sc in each blo of each st across (8)
Row 3 – 125: ch 1, t, work a th sc in each st across (8)
You can adjust your straps depending on how long or short you want them. Mine measure approx. 19” unstretched after 125 rows of thermal stitch and are just the length that I want them.
Once you have finished both straps, you can stitch them onto the top corners of your bag on each side with a yarn needle.
Weave in all ends and your Boho Circle Bag is complete!
