In this post, I want to share with you a fringe crossbody bag pattern.
This crochet fringe bag is easy for beginners and just what you need for your summer vacation.
The bag will go with any of your summer outfits and will compliment your laid back boho style.
An Easy Level Crochet Pattern
This pattern is for anyone who is an advanced beginner.
This pattern uses basic techniques, including; how to chain and single crochet.
I made the bag using Patons 100% cotton 4 ply yarn in the colour ‘limestone’ (1716) I bought 2 balls = 200g which was enough to make 2 bags and have a teeny ball left over.
I separated the yarn into 4 balls and worked with 4 strands of the yarn together so that I could use my size 10mm (US 15) crochet hook, which made the bag really fast to make.
