Hello, this is my first time crocheting a bag. I was wondering what should I do after Rnd 7? Round 7 said to DC in next 5sts. Should I increase to 6sts in Round 8? What do I do after rnd 7? How many total of stitches are there after each round?

Judy Marshall

Hello Lucy, I really like this floppy bag pattern, and want to give it a go. I like the idea of storing my yarn in it. If I use stylecraft chunky yarn, how many balls of wool would I need and what size hook should I use? Thank you for your time and I’ll look forward to hearing from you. I always love your choice of colours.
Best wishes Judy


Hi, how do you make the handles on the bag in the orginal photo? That one is made with one smooth continuous circle and not separate pieces sewn on. This is a gorgeous bag. I'd like to make the one in the photo I found on Pinterest.

I downloadedd this pattern but was a bit disappointed to see that the handle portion is different. How can I get instructons that will take me through the handle project in the bag as in the original oicture (not a separate handle). Also,in reading the comments, there appears to be no answer to requests on the need to decrease stitches to have a straight column-type bag, not a "V" shape.


Bonjour j'aimerais savoir pour les augmentations je vais jusqu'à combien de mailles pour combien de rangs svp merci


This rainbow bag is so pretty. I wanted to start making my own stuff to save a bit of money and your tutorial is really helpful. I cannot even dare to look at the prices on Etsy for such a boho bag.

Amazing bag pattern. I have a week spot for bags but I never considered making one myself. After reading this tutorial I want to challenge my skills a bit.

Love it!


Your lovely bag is on Wool Warehouse but sadly sold out :(
Could you please tell me if this will come back into stock again? :)

I wanted yarn that would stand up to the abuse that a bag goes through. I found it on Etsy. It is called Chunky Monkey, it is anti pilling, and it comes in all of Lucy’s colors. It does split at times but you just get used to it’s personality. It is tough but soft and perfect for bags. It is wonderful yarn and I plan to use it for this bag and many more. Fun to work with!

Hola soy nueva haciendo crochet, que significa "tr" por favor.

Hi there, I have a similar problem to the last comment. (June 11) Do you need to start decreasing at some point as my bag seems to be getting wider and not as cylindrical as yours?
Thank you.


Hi. There is something that i didn't understand. How is bag growing in v shape and not cylindrical after stopping to increase?


Love the bag and would like to subscribe to your blog but the link doesn't work for me. Can you add me?

Hi Maggie

I made this bag using an Aran weight yarn and a 4mm hook to keep the stitches nice and dense.

I used a pure wool, but any aran weight yarn would suit.

You will need approx. 400g in total.

Happy hooking!

Hi Lucy
I have just finished your Meadow blanket and love it. I would like to make this bag to keep my wool in but having looked at the yarn shop am unsure which to buy and how much. I would be grateful for any recommendations. Many thanks Maggie

My friend gave me the Jolly Bag pack for my birthday back in July. I love it!!
I love it so much, that I bought more yarn packs to make all my nieces jolly bags for Christmas this year.
I think they’ll love it as much as I will!
