Today’s crochet bag pattern freebie could be an oxymoron. A Crocheted Knitting Bag. Many times those of us that crochet also knit. So this bag would make sense. Some like one craft more than the other. Which do you prefer? Or do you like both.
This pattern is from an American Thread Company Star Book titled Crocheted Fashions. The crocheted bag uses Heavy Crochet Mercerized Cotton in Forest Green and White.
This vintage thread is similar to a Size 5 crochet thread. The balls contained 100 yards. Use a No. 4 steel crochet hook, but since no gauge is given, you’ll have to experiment. Knitting sticks or handles complete the top of the crochet bag.
This is a picture of the American Thread Company “Star” Fast Heavy Crochet Mercerized Cotton from the booklet.
I did a search on Amazon and came up with DMC Petra Crochet Cotton Size 5. It looks similar.
Make sure to read the shipping times carefully on these threads. A couple of them I noticed say “usually ships in 1 to 3 months.” I don’t know about you, but I want my thread a lot sooner than that.
