Trinity Crochet Bag made with Caron Cotton Cake - Free Crochet Pattern by Nicki's Homemade Crafts

When I recently went to Michael’s to check out the new Caron Cotton Cakes, I knew right away what I would make with it when I touched this fantastic new yarn. It is very soft.

And once I started working with it, I realized how easy it is to use it for crochet. I am hoping that Caron will make this cotton yarn available in solid colors also. It is so awesome. I love it.

In order to make this Trinity Crochet Bag, you will need a little bit more than 1 skein of this awesome new Caron Cotton Cake, so you will need to buy 2 skeins of it. Of course you could use a different yarn that is worsted weighted, but I just think it looks gorgeous with this yarn.

Furthermore, I used only 3 different stitches or stitch patterns: single crochet, the trinity stitch pattern and the waistcoat stitch (find the tutorial for it HERE). All of them require you to know one main crochet stitch that is used in different ways which is the single crochet. Awesome, right?

So let me now give you the list of information you need in order to do this wonderful Trinity Crochet Bag.

ADD THIS PATTERN TO YOUR RAVELRY FAVORITES LIST HERE

You will need:

  • Caron Cotton cakes (2 skein), make sure that you create two that can be joined so that the colors continue with the same pattern, meaning if one cake ends with yellow, the next one needs to start with yellow
  • 5.0mm hook
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle

Gauge:

4 sc x 4 rows = 1 square inch

Stitches used:

  • single crochet (sc)
  • trinity stitch pattern (sc3tog inserting the hook in the same st as the previous sc and then in the next 2 sts, ch 1)
  • waistcoat stitch (wst)
  • surface crochet to fill the gaps in round 1 (video provided below)

Instructions:

Use a stitch marker when beginning a new round. Also I used additional stitch markers in the stitches before and after the 20 sc that are placed in a row. I marked the stitch marker location on the first round only below by using this symbol: /.

For all the other rounds I just moved the stitch marker to the next round once I reached it again. Also see my picture below on how that looks like. 

Round 1: Ch 23, / 2 sc in the 2nd chain from the hook, / 1 sc in the next 20 chs, / 3 sc in the last ch, (now you will work on the other side of the chain, working yourself backwards, so it is a round) / 1 sc in the next 20 chs, / 1 sc in the first ch (where you place the 2 sc in the beginning), do not sl st

Round 2: place 2 sc each in the next 2 sts, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, place 2 sc each in the next 3 sts, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, place 2 sc in the next st, do not sl st

Round 3: 2 sc, 1 sc, 2 sc, 1 sc, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc,  do not sl st

Round 4: [2 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc] 2 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc, 1 sc,  do not sl st

Round 5: [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 3 sts] 2 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 3 sts] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc in the next 3 sts, do not sl st

Round 6: [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 4 sts] 2 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 4 sts] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc in the next 4 sts, do not sl st

Round 7: [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 5 sts] 2 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 5 sts] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc in the next 5 sts, do not sl st

Round 8: [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 6 sts] 2 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 6 sts] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc in the next 6 sts, do not sl st

Round 9: [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 7 sts] 2 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 7 sts] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc in the next 7 sts, do not sl st

Round 10: [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 8 sts] 2 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, [2 sc, 1 sc in the next 8 sts] 3 times, place 1 sc in the next 20 sts, 2 sc, 1 sc in the next 8 sts, do not sl st

Leave the stitch markers where they are even though you are adding more rounds as that will help you later where to add the handles. The ONLY stitch marker you will need to move is the one that is showing you where a round ends or starts

Now you will start the trinity stitch pattern

Round 11 – 29: *sc3tog which is done by inserting the hook in the same st as the previous sc (pull up a loop) and then in the next 2 sts (pulling up a loop each time), you will have 4 loops on your hook now, yo and pull thru all 4 loops, ch 1, repeat from * until you reach the outside of the bag (for me it was the right) when laying the bag out flat (see picture), use a stitch marker here now

Now you will start the waistcoat stitch (tutorial for it is HERE) after 1 round of single crochets

Round 30: 1 sc in each stitch all around, no sl st

When you reach the same outside “edge” as before when the bag is laying out flat, stop.

You see now your stitch markers from round 10, use those as a guide to see where the handles will need to be by going straight up. Add new stitch markers and add them where the handle starts and ends. The handles have exactly 20 stitches in between. See my picture below to see what I mean. Be sure to do that one both sides.

Round 33: Continue to do the wst until you reach your first marker, now ch 20 and skip 20 sts, start the wst again after the next marker and continue until the next marker, ch 20 and skip 20 sts, start the wst after the next marker again and continue until you reach the first marker of the first handle again (where you made the first set of 20 chs)

Round 34: crochet 1 sc in each ch of the 20 chs you created, 1 wst in each sts until you reach the next handle where you made 20 chs, crochet 1 sc in each ch of the 20 chs you created, 1 wst in each st

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

If you have gaps when you created round 1, add a surface crochet stitch over it. See my tutorial below for on how to do that. The picture on the left shows the gaps, that are filled on the right after the surface crochet was added.

You can now use the bag as you wish. I use this bag for crochet projects I do when I am on the go and have to wait somewhere such as the doctors office or other appointments.

  1. I cannot find the Caron Cotton Cake at yarnspiratios.com. My search had Michael’s in store only but did not see it there last Tuesday. Can you Sen me a link where I can purchase this yarn online please? I love the pattern and colors! Thank you!😊💜

    1. Paula, this yarn is just too new. I could not find it online. But as soon as I know it is available I will provide a link. I promise. For right now, I know that only Michaels carries this yarn.
