This bucket crochet bag was designed initially for I Like Crochet magazine for the Chevron Collection issue. 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).
 The bag is comfortable and light, but big enough to carry all your essentials.
