Crochet Pattern: Clarice Carryall

Profile of woman wearing silver coat and maroon pants while carrying crochet motif bag made with undyed yarn. | Free crochet pattern: Clarice Carryall in Appalachian Baby Design Organic Cotton Sport yarn by Underground CrafterThe Clarice Carryall is a crochet bag made with a neutral, undyed yarn so it can pair with any outfit. This simple project is portable to work on because it’s made with motifs. Linked photo and video tutorials help you with special stitches, lining, and seaming techniques.

I’ve mentioned before that I love to crochet bags. You can use them right away no matter what season, unlike hats or scarves. They are relatively small and portable projects, so they are perfect for crocheting on the go.

(The black coat isn’t quite warm enough.) The bag starts with square motifs which are then seamed together.

I’ve linked to three different tutorials for liners and shared a pattern for a single crochet liner, so you have four options for lining this bag.

Clarice Carryall

Crochet Pattern by Underground Crafter

A neutral, undyed yarn and textured motifs combine to make a tote that pairs with any outfit.

 

Finished Size

  • Adult: 12.5” (32 cm) wide x 14.5” (37 cm) long.

Materials

  • Appalachian Baby Design Organic Cotton Sport yarn (100% organic cotton, 4 oz/113 g/250 yd/229 m) – 3 skeins in Natural Undyed, or approximately 555 yd (507.5 m) in any light weight cotton yarn.
  • US Size F-5/3.75 mm crochet hook, or size needed to obtain gauge.
  • Yarn needle.

Gauge

  • Motif = 6” (15 cm) square in pattern. Exact gauge is not critical for this project.

Abbreviations Used in This Pattern

  • 3L – third (back) loop only
  • BL – back loop only
  • ch – chain
  • dc – double crochet
  • FPdc – front post double crochet – Yo, insert hook from front around back to front of st in previous round, yo and draw up a loop, [yo and draw through 2 loops] twice. A video tutorial for this pattern is available here.
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • rep – repeat
  • Rnd – Round
  • RS – right (front) side
  • sc – single crochet
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • sp – space
  • st(s) – stitch(es)
  • WS – wrong (back) side
  • yo – yarn over
  • * Repeat instructions after asterisk as indicated.
  • [] Repeat instructions between brackets as indicated.
  • () Repeat instructions between parentheses in same stitch or space.

Pattern Notes

  • Ch 1 at beginning of Rows and Rounds does NOT count as a stitch.
  • Depending on how you plan to use this tote, you may not need to line it. If you do decide to line your bag, here are a few options.
    • I make no-sew liners with duct tape. These are very sturdy and add shape to the bag. Also, they are easy to wash and wipe after a spill. If you use this type of liner with this tote, wash and dry the tote first to give the cotton yarn a chance to shrink to its final size. You can find a No-Sew Liners with Duct Tape tutorial here.
    • You can also make a single crochet liner. For this bag, ch 57, skip 1 ch, sc in the next 56 ch. Then, turn, ch 1, sc in first st and each st across until the liner measures twice the length of the Front Panel. Fold the liner in half so that the short sides are together. Then insert the liner in between the Front and Back Panel before joining. Work through all 4 layers (Front Panel + 2 layers of folded single crochet liner + Back Panel) as you seam the Panels together with the single crochet seam.
    • If you want to make a fabric liner, Moogly has several helpful tutorials: Nearly No-Sew Fabric Liner and No-Sew Fabric Liner with the Cricut Maker.

Crochet Pattern: Textured Waves Hooded Cowl

Free crochet pattern: Textured Waves Hooded Cowl by Underground CrafterThe Textured Waves Hooded Cowl is a convertible cowl that can also be worn as a hood. Use post stitches to create gently textured waves. Crocheted flat and then seamed, this hygge-inspired project will wrap you in warmth and texture.

Free crochet pattern: Textured Waves Hooded Cowl by Underground CrafterEarlier this year, the nice folks at Yarnbox invited me to contribute a pattern to their subscription boxes. I wanted to create something that was textured and pretty but not too difficult to make. It actually repeats the same row for the entire pattern, so once you get the combination down, it is easy to make.

Free crochet pattern: Textured Waves Hooded Cowl by Underground CrafterBecause I know a lot of crocheters struggle with back post stitches, this pattern is crocheted flat and then seamed, so you only need to work front post double crochet stitches. You can find a video tutorial for these stitches here, or watch it at the end of the pattern.

You can substitute another yarn if you can’t find Flying Goat Farm Zephyrette yarn near you, but your cowl may not be as luscious and warm as this one!

Keyhole scarves are an important part of my handmade gift closet. (If you don’t have a handmade gift closet yet, you can find my tips for starting one along with a roundup of free crochet patterns here.) They don’t use up as much yarn as traditional scarves, so they work really well for sets, too.

This particular keyhole scarf uses some great textures made from simple stitches.
