Festive Crochet Gift Bags

Why not make your own cute festive gift bags this year?

These are really easy - and quick to make ....... and you can easily alter the width or length to suit.


Make them in stripes ...... or in one colour
And add a pretty ribbon bow
Gift Bag

 DK yarn
 4mm crochet hook
 ribbon or lace trim


This pattern is written in UK terminology.         tc = treble crochet        dc = double crochet

Foundation Chain:   chain 20

Round 1:   1tc in third chain from hook, 2tc in every second stitch along chain (18sts),

and then continue in the same way along the bottom of the chain, making 2tc in in every other stitch . (36sts in the round).



Join with a slip stitch.

Round 2:   chain 3 and make 1tc into the first 2-stitch group, 2tc in each 2-stitch group all around. (36sts).  Join with a slip stitch.

Repeat round 2 until the work measures 15cm (or the desired length).

Edging Round:  chain 2 then make 4tc in the same stitch, 1dc in each of next 3sts,  *5tr in next stitch, 1dc in each of next 3sts repeat from * to the end of the round.  Join with a slip stitch.

Darn away ends.

Thread a ribbon or lace through the bag, and tie a bow.
