Chevron Bucket Bag Free Crochet Pattern

Last Updated on October 3, 2023

The Chevron crochet bucket bag is the perfect size for an everyday bag. It is comfortable and light, but big enough to carry all your essentials. The bag has a drawstring closer to keep all your belonging safe.
You can use contrasting colors of yarn to create an eye-catching bag, or more neutrals for a subtle look!

About the Chevron Crochet Bucket Bag Design

This crochet bucket bag pattern was designed initially for I Like Crochet magazine for the Chevron Collection issue. After I got my copyright back, I’m happy to share with you this bucket bag free crochet pattern here!

I had such a fun time designing this bag! I wanted the colors to be somewhat neutrals, so I chose jute as the main color and added light pink and white to add some color and interest into the bag.

The pattern is worked in the round from the bottom to the top. At the top of the bag, we create eyelets to add a drawstring and a dainty metal strap is added to the bag (you can also use a fabric strap).

How To crochet a bucket bag?

This bucket bag crochet pattern is easy. The pattern works up as a round bottom crochet bag pattern, then turns into a chevron pattern to create the sides of the bag.

The crochet chevron pattern is made using double crochet stitches when using the main color, and a single crochet chevron pattern when making the color stripes. At the top of the crochet bag we are making eyelets for the drawstring, and finishing with a picot border.

Which Yarn Is Best For Crocheting a Bag?

When crocheting a bag, you want it to be sturdy enough, so it is better to use a thick yarn, such as Worsted (#4) or Bulky (#5) weight yarn.

For this bucket bag crochet pattern, I used YarnArt – Eco Cotton XL yarn, which is a Worsted weight yarn made of 80% cotton and 20% polyester.

Assembly

Attach the strap clips to the loops at the top of the bag.

Lay the bag flat with the strap clips on both sides, weave in the drawstring in the front center, starting from the outside, weave in and out through all 10 eyelets, the last one should exit the bag so that both ends of the drawstring are outside the bag and can meet in the center.

  1. I would like to see the video of how to crochet the Chevron Bag, please?

    1. Hi Kathleen, I don’t have a video for this pattern, only written instructions.

      1. hi I’d also love to see a video for both of your bag patterns. I know Kathleen had asked if YOU WOULD MAKE ONE for this pattern. she didn’t get a reply to that.. so I thought I’d ask as well. 😃 maybe seeing there’s a big desire for it/ them you’ll consider doing a video????

        1. Hi Kathleen (assuming you are a different Kathleen) 😊
          Unfortunately, I still don’t have a video tutorial for this bag.
          I do work on adding video tutorials to my patterns, as much as my time and resources are allowing me.
          I will definitely put this pattern higher on the list, seeing more people are interested in that.
          Thank you for taking the time to let me know!

          1. Hi, I am struggling with Round 31 and “Making a loop” round.
            If there is no video, could you at least post photos?

          2. Hi Val,
            I’m sorry you are struggling with this round.
            Most of my patterns that are free on my blog don’t have photo tutorials, but the PDF patterns that are available for a small fee do have photo tutorials 🙂

            But since I got quite a lot of questions about this part of the pattern, I have added the photo tutorial for this part.
            Happy crocheting,
            Agat

  2. In the posted picture of the bag in progress the gap doesn’t look like stitches done together. It looks like a chain one. Is there a reason for this?

    1. Hi Tauna,
      I’m not completely sure which gaps you are referring to, I’m assuming you are referring to the first photo in the post with the pink color work in progress?
      If so, this is a photo of row 29 where you make the eyelets for the drawstring, that’s why you see the ch-1 gap in the lower part of the chevron.
      I hope it helps!
