This free crochet pattern is for an origami bag. This pattern is made from a folded rectangle using the thermal stitch and Brava worsted yarn from WeCrochet and includes a video tutorial for the stitch.
Ever since my mom introduced me to crafting I loved making origami creations. In fact, my brother loved making them too and we shared a book with lots of inspirational origami projects. But since I can’t sit still and work on only one thing, I explored my crafty side more. I learned to paint, draw and knit, and eventually crochet.
So when I stumbled upon crochet origami I felt like I was sent back to my past and told my younger self that I would eventually have it all. Crochet + Origami = organisational, functional and fun crochet creations. YAY! This bag is inspired by the Japanese folding method by Azuma Bukuro.

I always loved crocheting and sewing bags. a few years ago I made a lot of sewn bags for fun. I gave them all to my family. Cause my hubby thinks I have too many bags. LOL But seriously I have and collect a lot of bags.
Crocheting them, however, really allows me to be as creative as I want to be. Anything is possible when it comes to bags. As long as it has a handle and can store things for on-the-go transport, a bag can look any way you want.
So this origami bag is imply made from a 1:3 ratio rectangle folded together to make this beautiful bag that is slightly open in the center. The ombre effect in the color combination really make the bag stand out, as well.
Best Yarn for Bag Crochet Patterns
You can truly use any yarn you want. But I prefer using acrylic or polyester yarn for my bags as they are more durable that way. To increase the stability of the bag I decided to use the thickest crochet stitch in crochet which is called the Thermal Stitch. In combination with that, I used Brava yarn as it has really bold and beautiful colors.
