Make mine topaz crochet cross body bag pattern is now available. This crochet pattern is all beginner friendly stitches. Tutorials for the woven strap, invisible knot tassel and how to use and install bag hardware are part of the video instructions.
The crochet cross body bag is a generous size and you customize the strap to suit your frame. Sturdy base allows you to pack it full and keep your hands free while on the go in style. The generous size will hold a water bottle, light sweater or scarf along with your bag essential.
Fashionable design is classic yet modern. A sturdy base will keep you confident the bag will not sag or allow contents to slip out.
Crochet cross body bag pattern
This pattern uses category 4 yarn. The body is a series of variations of single crochet stitches that make it beginner friendly. The body is worked in the round so there are no seams to break the textured pattern keeping the columns perfectly symmetrical all the way around.
The bag looks great from every angle. The finished size is approximately 11″ high x 12″ wide.
Gold embroidery floss is used to make the tassel blend in with the gold hardware. How to make a tassel with an invisible knot is shown in this video tutorial.
The bag flap has additional braid detail to match the body of the crochet bag.
The woven strap doesn’t give a lot of stretch (as long as you don’t go too large with your hook) and you can customize the length so your crossbody crochet bag fits your frame perfectly. I love a hands free bag and was the impetus for creating this . I am 5’11 and often find cross body straps aren’t long enough!
See how to make a no stretch woven style crochet strap in the video tutorial.
I designed knit and crochet project trackers! Keep track of your cardigan pattern with this tracker.
This is the large print version for tired eyes. So much easier than using apps, scraps of paper or a plain notebook.
Three project sizes, a handy ruler and hook guide inside the cover and plenty of room for notes in each pattern.
Buy the Large print project tracker.
Buy the regular size print project tracker.
I have had bad eyesight since age 18 so large print is a godsend when you can’t see apps and dark yarn, let alone going from one to the other on a crochet-a-thon during a Netflix binge.

Supplies to make the crochet cross body bag
To make this bag you will need three sizes of crochet hooks, 6 mm, 5 mm and 4.5mm. An inexpensive bag base (or you can opt to crochet one of the same size), handle hardware or you may opt to crochet a handle directly into the top of the bag (the pattern tells you were to add this), a ruler, a stitch marker, gold embroidery floss, category 4 yarn in cotton or acrylic.
I use a funny little hack to keep yarn secure in the base of the bag because for this design working from the bag base up isn’t possible. I use a rubber washer that will keep the yarn secure and not push through premade holes in the leather base.
