Too Hot To Handle Bag Crochet Pattern
Meet my newest crochet pattern, the Too Hot To Handle Bag! I went full out, no holds barred with a lacy, shell pattern to make it All. About. That. Handle.
The body of the purse is just straight single crochet until you turn and work the shell pattern to create the handles. It’s an intermediate crochet pattern, but if if you’re a adventurous beginner, I say go for it! You’ll need to know how to single crochet, double crochet, and slip stitch.
- Size 3.75 mm / Size F crochet hook (or size to meet gauge)
- 450 yds MC / 60 yds CC (or 510 yds of a single color for a monochromatic look) DK or light Worsted weight yarn
- Two 12” x 1/4” dowel rods
- 1/2” D-rings
- Purse strap
I used Hobbii Amigo XL in Dark Blue Melange for the body of my bag. The CC is Hobbii Starlight Soft in Seafoam. The Starlight yarn is an acrylic yarn with reflective thread worked in. I thought having a reflective element made for a fun detail for a purse!
You know it wouldn’t be a Different View Design pattern if it didn’t have a little some special and fun to make it usable and accessible for many different people!
This purse has 5 different, interchangeable strap options!
- Clutch (no strap)
- Shoulder Bag
- Wheelchair bag
Instructions for making your purse in all 5 configurations are included in the pattern!
