Bloomin’ Bag

Posted on December 1, 2019

Here is my version of the Bloomin’ Bag pattern from Cathy Phillips. The free pattern link is available on Ravelry where you can download a PDF of the crochet pattern.

Bloomin Tote Bag

My tote bag was crocheted using Red Heart with Love Metallic yarn in fuchsia. I used about 410 yards of yarn for my bag.

I changed up the pattern just a bit to make it taller by crocheting one additional set of repeats of the main bag body. I then crocheted different handles using the same method I do for my recycled tote bags.

For my Bloomin’ Bag handles, I started in 7 inches from sides, chained 36 for handles, leaving 22 stitches unworked, then sc in each stitch until other side. Repeat for other side’s handle to match first side.
Row 2 – Sc in each stitch and work 38 sc around handle chain, repeat for other side.
Row 3-5 – Sc in each sts around.

Finished size of my Bloomin’ Bag with measurements taken flat are:
20” wide by 13” tall with 11” handles.

Overall a very good pattern and I love the look of the stitch design. Next I want to crochet this pattern using recycled plastic bags. I think it will be a wonderful pattern for a recycled tote bag.
