Bumble Bag Crochet Pattern
The Bumble Bag is the perfect addition to your handmade summer wardrobe, just swap out the teal yarn with any colour to fit your style. Whether you’re heading to the beach or going shopping, this fabulous tote bag is big enough to fit in all of your essentials as well as your current crochet WIP.
This pattern boasts a simple 2-panel half-double crochet construction with a fun bumble bee intarsia colourwork design, finished with a quick slip stitch seam. The sample is made using the wonderfully soft and glossy Rainbow Bamboo from Hobbii, a 100% natural bamboo and cotton blend.
This pattern is perfect for the advanced beginner crocheter, if you can do colour changes, you can make this bag. And if you can’t do colour changes, you can still make this bag because I include tutorials in all of my colourwork patterns!
