Crocheted Swirling Bag

I know some of you have seen the super awesome crocheted swirling bag, which is a free pattern from Interweave. I just thought I’d share here a link to a picture tutorial I just posted for making this bag:

I think this pattern is certainly easy enough for a beginner crocheter to make as long as they have mastered single crochet and following directions, but there are a few things in the pattern that are not spelled out which might confuse some people. So I am hoping that reading through my tutorial first will save someone from frustration and allow them to enjoy making this fun bag.

Take a look if you’re interested in it!


The directions and pictures look terrific. The link should really help anyone start off with confidence. Thanks very much.

I’ve not seen this bag. Very pretty–and very unusual.

Thanks so much for the step-by-step directions. I may have to try this at some point, but, alas, not today!
