Running Rings Granny Square Bag | Premium Crochet Patterns

There is something special about a handmade handbag - even more so when you've crafted it yourself!


This crochet granny square bag features my Running Rings square in a slightly different version as to create these smaller square that are full of colour!


I choose to use a bamboo handle to create a stylish crochet accessory that I would be proud to carry on my arm! The handles were purchased from Etsy, Click Here to see the exact handles I used.


You don't have to add the same handles, you can simply create your own. But, I found that they gave the bag much needed rigidity and a firmer opening to the bag.

The yarn used in the pattern is Stylecraft Naturals Bamboo & Cotton and this is the first time I've used this yarn.


Not only is it eco friendly, with it's blend of cotton and bamboo, but it is really soft and works up really well! There are over 40 different shades to choose from over on LoveCrafts. Click here to see all the shades.


This is the first wearable that features the Running Rings Around Granny Square, but the style of square has featured in a number of patterns including:
