Alp Tote Bag Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The peaks and lines in this pattern remind me of mountains and valleys so I put these on the Alp Tote Crochet Bag Pattern. A common shape in nature integrated into a fun bag. This can be used for the Beach, Pool, Grocery Store, and so much more! This crochet tote bag works up quick and the bulky cotton yarn adds strength and stitch definition. If crochet bags are your thing, also check out the cute Cat Yarn Project Bag Pattern or the Sheep Crochet Project Bag Pattern.

Written Pattern Instructions for the Alp Tote Bag:

Changing Colors:
When changing colors, work in the last stitch of current color to the last two loops, yarn over with the new color and pull through two loops. Continue to work in new color

Working in Tapestry:
When working a lot of color changes (body of bag rows 7-12), the yarn not in use will lay flat on top of the row and single crochet stitches will be worked over it. This will hide the unworked yarn from both sides.
