Make your own summer bag with this circle bag crochet pattern, featuring a flap and fastening and raised sunburst design.
I LOVE the circle bag and basket bag trend but couldn’t find one with a closing and fastening, so I designed one! It’s easy to crochet and only uses one ball of yarn so is quick and affordable too (as they’re only really a summer item I wanted to make sure it wouldn’t cost too much to make). It instantly makes any outfit feel summery – whether your style is jeans and t-shirts or floral dresses, or both!
You can choose from two yarn options – jute twine for a rustic look and strong construction or raffia, which has more of a shine and works up slightly smaller, with some stretch to it. I made the twine one first, but was then seduced by Wool and the Gang’s beautiful raffia yarn to try it in that too. Long story short – the gauge and sizes for both are included with the pattern as I couldn’t pick a favourite.
