Bags and Totes

Lately, knitted and crocheted totes have been trendy. I’ve seen them popping up everywhere, from couture collections to my local beach.

Perhaps you want to get in on this trend too — or maybe you could care less about the trends, and you just want a nice bag that will look good and last you a long time. Either way, the patterns on this page are worth considering.


Assuming you use durable materials and take proper care of them, knitted and crocheted bags can be surprisingly sturdy and long-wearing.

They are also versatile; they can be stylish, fashion-forward, classic and / or practical.
