How do you crochet a boho purse?

A crochet purse pattern is typically in a rectangular shape or a round shape. You will likely go back and forth in rows if it’s rectangular. If it’s circular, you will need to count carefully and increase your rows to make the circle bigger and bigger.

We have a few crochet tutorials on some common crochet stitches used for purses as well including chain stitches, single crochet, half double crochet, slip stitch (sl st), slip knot, and more.

Finally, you will also likely need a tapestry needle to seam two pieces together, often with the whip stitch. You may also need extra yarn to add fringe to the front of the bag for a hippie look!

This boho market bag by Nanas Crafty Home is big enough to take to the market but not so big you can’t use it as a purse if you choose to line it. It also makes a great craft bag or WIP bag! The bottom of the bag is pretty big, so you can carry a water bottle or other heavier items.
