Crochet Crossbody Bag

Crochet Crossbody Bag made in green, light green and gold colors in a half circle shape with a celtic knot at the center hanging on a white mannequin

Crochet Crossbody Bag

This Crochet Crossbody Bag features an eye-catching Celtic Knot Square and makes for a great bag to take on all your travels and day-to-day errands! Crossbody Bags (and Fanny Packs) are popular once again! (Yes, I remember using one when I traveled in the 90’s! πŸ˜‰) I love the crochet versions and decided it would be fun to create a Celtic one!

Just 4 Squares!

Did you know that these types of bags are made with just 4 squares? For my Celtic Crossbody Bag I decided to use 2 Celtic Knot Squares and 2 traditional Granny Squares. The Celtic Knot used for this project is the same knot as in the Celtic Knot Square (a FREE pattern on this blog found here) but is a smaller size. I also crocheted it with thinner yarn so the pattern is different but the knot weaving method is the same. Because the knot’s are the same, you can use the step-by-step video tutorial for the Celtic Knot Square (found here) to help you with that part of the project.

And now there is a Left-Hander version of the Knot Weaving Diagram to help the Left-Handers out there! πŸ™‚ A left-hander would use the same instructions but their cords would turn out to look opposite the right-handers’ which would make it difficult to use the diagram (for right-handers). So, I have included a separate file download (that is included with the pattern cost) that solves this issue!

Stitches Used in this Crochet Crossbody Bag

For this Crochet Crossbody Bag I used many basic stitches (slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet) and some other stitches: extended stitches and decreases. Extended stitches help you make your basic stitches just a little bit taller to get a certain effect in the design of a project. Decrease stitches help you create various shapes with crochet. All of these stitches are explained in the large-print pattern that is available in my Etsy Shop here. Some of the stitches and techniques also have links to video tutorials to help you with them.

You can purchase this pattern now as an instant digital download in my Etsy Shop here. This is an 18-page pattern that includes over 35 clear color photos that help with each step of the project: crocheting the cords to make the knot, weaving the knot, turning the knot motif into a 6″ square, crocheting the granny squares, putting the squares together and adding the finishing touches. And, of course, if you ever have any questions with the pattern, I am just an email away and would be glad to help you.

Skill Level: Intermediate

Even though most of the stitches in this project are basic stitches I am rating this project as Intermediate due to how it is put together and that working the stitches and knot weaving with thinner yarn can make a project more challenging (than if you were to work with Size 4 yarn)

Measurements: Approximately 14″ long and 6 1/2″ tall
