Introduction: Rustic Crochet Jute Bag
One of the greatest things about crochet bags is that they are extremely versatile. They can be used for any occasion. You can make them in any size or shape as you desire.... right from a small crochet gift bag to a large Crochet Tote Bag, Purse , Market Bag, Beach Bag or an elegant evening bag. Crochet Bags are not only pretty but also very functional and practical.
Today am sharing the pattern for this quick and easy Rustic Crochet Jute Bag. I love the rustic feel of jute twine. Crochet Patterns made with Jute twine are beautiful to look at and they are extremely strong , durable and sturdy. They are just perfect for crocheting Bags and Large Laundry Baskets. They are also great for many more DIY crafts for your home. The Jute Twine being quite sturdy gives the finished bag a sturdy shape and prevents it from stretching. The crochet stitches used are basic making it beginner friendly. In this crochet pattern, the handles are crochet from jute twine too. If you wish, you can try replacing it with ready made handles. These ready made handles will definitely give a different look to this bag.
You might find the Jute twine a bit rough and hard to work with. If you find it hard to pull out the stitches, try changing your hook size or try holding the twine in a different way for more comfort and keep the stitches loose. Working with Jute can be messy too 'coz they leave back little particles of the fibers, but its fun and worth making Crochet Projects with them.

1 Single Crochet in each stitch around.
Once you reach the end, do not slip stitch. We will be working in continuous rounds.
Round 4 Onwards:-
Keep Repeating Round 3 untill the size needed.
- Even if you are not keeping a count of the stitches, its very easy to gauge on where to put the handles.
- Just fold the bag in half and gauge the mid point.
- Count Back 4 stitches from the middle stitch(middle stitch not to be counted) and mark the next stitch with a stitch marker. This will be the starting point of the handle. Again, count forward 4 stitches from the mid point and mark the next stitch. This will be end point of the handle.
- Repeat the same for the 2nd handle on the opposite side.
1 Single Crochet in each stitch untill the marked stitch.
1 Single Crochet into the stitch next to the marked stitch(1st Handle made)
Continue with 1 Single Crochet in each stitch untill the next marked stitch.
Repeat the same for the 2nd handle too.
1 Single Crochet inn each stitch in untill the handle.
16 Single Crochets into the handle loops. While making the single Crochets, Yarn over the whole handle loop.
Continue with 1 Single crochet in each stitch untill the next handle.
Repeat the same for 2nd handle.
Once you reach the end, slip stitch and weave off.
