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.


Crochet Bag Pattern - Vintage Crafts and More


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.

Vintage Thread

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.

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.

Welcome to VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie Friday!


Today’s vintage crochet pattern is not only great to use for shopping but for storing onions, potatoes and other produce in your pantry. The netting feature will let air circulate.

The pattern uses a size 7 crochet hook and JP Coats Knit-Cro-Sheen Cotton Crochet Thread. This bag is done in red, but there are many other colors you could choose from.

The shopping bag folds down so that it can tuck in to the corner of your purse to have handy for that spur of the moment shopping trip. Best of all these are reusable so you’ll use less of those plastic grocery bags.


No PDF file for this one. You can simply click on it and print it out or at the very bottom of this post you’ll find a green PRINT button you can use. Also be sure to Pin It to refer to later on.
