Simple Macrame Crochet Tote Bag - Free Pattern



 Hi Everyone! 😉

Today I am here to share the Simple Macrame Tote Bag crochet pattern with you. It's worked from the bottom up.The handle straps are crocheted directly onto the body so the bag is one piece with no extra seaming.
This pattern is written for those with basic crochet knowledge.To make this tote bag, you should be familiar with basic crochet stitches and terminology. You should also know how to crochet in the round.
I used DK weight (size 3 - light) YarnArt Macrame cord type polyester yarn and a 3,5 mm (E4) crochet hook.
If you wish to make your very own Macrame Tote Bag, feel free to scroll down for a free written pattern and video tutorial.

Hope you enjoy!
Happy Crocheting! 😊
