Urban Gypsy Boho Bag – Free Crochet Pattern

Crochet August 8, 2017

Urban Gypsy Boho Bag

Have a Boho beauty in your life? Are you, yourself a Bohemian? Then how about show that side of you off with this free crochet pattern for an Urban Gypsy Boho Bag? The Make & Do Crew provides this pattern free of charge, or – if you’d rather have a printable PDF without the ads – you can purchase the seven page pattern with accompanying step-by-step photos for a small fee. This is the perfect bag for the summer, whether you’re attending a music night at the park, going on a road trip to a boho mecca, or simply shopping at the local farmer’s market.

The Urban Gypsy Boho Bag is just one of a collection of patterns from the Make & Do Crew inspired by the 1970’s hippie generation. It features granny squares as well as plenty of fringe accents. You can crochet a strap for the bag if you wish, but if you want to go full-on retro, you can attach a vintage belt instead (there are instructions for both so pick your favorite) If you want an accompanying accessory or clothing item for the bag, you can try their other patterns, like the crochet moccasins, the hooded cowl, DIY boots, and cardigan. There are links to each of these patterns on the bag pattern page.

To make your own boho bag, you’ll need the following materials:

  • 5 skeins of yarn (the pattern calls for Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton in “Vanilla”)
  • Size “K” crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • 30″ x 24″ piece of muslin fabric (optional for the inside of the bag)
  • Sewing needle and thread to match muslin fabric (again, this is optional)
  • Toggle button
  • Leather belt or strap (optional)
  • D-rings and rivets (optional – these are for use with the leather belt or strap)

While gauge is not as important in this particular project, if you want to make sure you’re staying within the pattern’s parameters, each square should measure 8.5 inches. There are also some stitches you should be familiar with in order to complete this project: magic ring, single crochet (sc), skip (sk), slip stitch (sl st), chain (ch), double crochet (dc), right side (RS), treble crochet (tr), space (sp). There are also a few special stitches: two double crochet cluster (2DcCl), three double crochet cluster (3DcCl), and four double crochet cluster (4DcCl), all of which are explained in the pattern. The bag is crocheted by holding two strands of yarn together at a time, and the pattern is basically two squares and two triangles worked together with the later inclusion of a strap and plenty of fringe.

Most of these should be known to beginner crocheters, which means this pattern is a good fit for most everyone. It might be a new challenge for those who have not made granny squares in the past, but it won’t be so difficult that it can’t be mastered.

If you would like to add this Urban Gypsy Boho Bag to your collection, you can find the list of materials, pattern notes, complete pattern, and photo tutorial for free at the Make & Do Crew’s website. Be sure and sign up to receive their weekly newsletter – it comes with free patterns.
