Crochet Lilium Bag Pattern & Tutorial


Hi Friends! Today's free pattern is the LiLium Bag Pattern! I am a sucker for sales and I think you can relate! These Hooked Ribbon XL yarn was on sale! ERRR I couldn't resist so the result is a tote bag. Honestly, I would not have chosen green but it was the color on sale and it pushed me to get a color I normally wouldn't.

I used Hooked Ribbon XL yarn but you can use other heavy weight yarn like Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick and Quick, a wool blend. Another great option is Hometown USA 100% acrylic yarn although this one is softer. I used this one in my video tutorial.


You can find the pdf pattern in my shops or save it as a favorite. Links to video and resources are provided in the pdf pattern as well.

Set up round: 1sc tbl of each st around. Pm on first st of each round if desired.


Rounds 1-20: 1sc in each st around in a continuous roun


Note: Adjust bag height as desired. If you are adding the lace accent round, keep in mind of how tall you want your bag, where you want to place your accent round, and how much more you will work after the accent round.
