The Under One Skein Crochet Belt Bag – Free Pattern

Free crochet pattern for a super cute Boho Belt Bag! 

As the name suggests this super cute little belt bag is made with well under one skein of yarn which means that it costs less than £1 (depending on what yarn you use) and can be started and finished in one afternoon! It attaches to your belt with stylish convenience and can store your phone, coins and keys.  If you’re like me and don’t want to carry a bag around with you all the time but don’t want pockets stuffed full with bit and pieces then this little boho belt bag is for you!

The Yarn: I used 1 skein of Stylecraft Special Dk in the shade 1712 Lime. I split my skein in 2 with a yarn winder and held 2 strands together to make the body of the purse a bit sturdier. The flap, belt straps and tassels are made with just one strand.

What You’ll Need:

1 Skein of Dk yarn split into 2 cakes to hold 2 stands of yarn together.

4.5 & 5.5mm hook


Darning Needle

Stitch Markers


A belt
