TEXTURED CROCHET BAG HOLDER PATTERN

This bag holder is a handy project when finished and adds a retro feel to your home! I added the wooden ring to give it a modern twist. It can be hung inside your pantry or out in the open as a conversation piece. No matter where you put it the use of this bag holder will go a long way in making things easier!

I used Bernat Maker Home Dec yarn. I found mine at my local craft store. I do suggest using this type of yarn because it holds its shape very well and will not be droopy looking. It is made with 72% Cotton, 28% Nylon which is a perfect blend for a project like this, it has enough stretch to put in a good amount of bags.

You can find the wooden rings at your local craft store or amazon. Michael’s and Hobby Lobby would be my suggestion to search for them.

Materials:

  • Bernat Maker Home Dec Yarn – I used Aqua
  • J – 6.oomm Crochet hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • one wooden ring

 

Abbreviations:

CH – chain

Sl St – slip stitch

INC – increase ( two stitches in the same stitch)

Inv. Dec. – invisible decrease – insert hook through the front loop of the next two stitches, yarn over, and pull through. yarn over and pull through again.

SC – single crochet

DC – double crochet

HDC – half double crochet

FPDC – front post double crochet –

  1. Yarn over.
  2. Insert your hook front-to-back through your work, so that the post you want to crochet around is in front of your hook.
  3. Yarn over again and pull through.

BPDC – back post double crochet –

  1. Yarn over.
  2. Insert your hook back-to-front through your work, so that the post you want to crochet around is in the back of your hook.
  3. Yarn over again and pull through.

 

Notes:

  • You will be making an HDC in the back loop in row 7. This will create some fun visual texture to the bag holder.
  • JOINING: Join in the first stitch made in the previous row and CHAIN 1 for SC row, CHAIN 2 for HDC row, CHAIN 3 for a DC row. CHAINS DO NOT COUNT AS A STITCH
