Crocheted flower granny square bag with decorative handles


Hello My Crochet Friends!

Bags, rucksacks, sacks, purses, net bags, and market bags—this is my favorite crochet topic and go-to gift idea for friends, family, and anyone I want to delight with a handmade present.

I adore crocheting granny square bags! There’s something so magical about making individual squares, arranging them in different shapes, and watching them come together to form a functional bag.


Today, I have prepared a very easy tutorial for a handbag, which consists of 13 simple squares and is completed with purchased handles decorated with wooden beads. The bag has a straightforward construction: you just fold and sew the squares together. In the instructions, I will show you how to assemble a bag from 8, 10, or 13 squares. This allows you to create a bigger or smaller, wider or narrower bag—according to your needs and taste.

This flower granny bag is so dainty and sweet. I think it looks beautiful with scattered flower squares at the centers of the granny squares!


The bag is simple, stylish, and comfortable. I chose the popular yarn for bags and handbags from AYAZ Lace. There are many beautiful colors on offer that you can combine or use to crochet a monochromatic bag.

The handbag is crocheted from squares, each with only four rows. I use single, half-double, and double crochets, making it easy enough for beginners. No special knowledge of crochet is needed; everything is explained and demonstrated in detail in the video tutorial.

So let me now get started and tell you what you will need in order to crochet this CROCHETED FLOWER GRANNY SQUARE BAG WITH DECORATIVE HANDLES.  

This bag is very easy and quick to make.
The pattern uses only basic crochet stitches - double crochets, half double crochet, single crochet and chains.
The pattern was made with AYAZ LACE

skein: 250 g / 225 m / 100 % polyester


You will need 2.5 balls for standard size bag.


You will need also decorative handles: https://www.vlnika.cz/z14965-ucha-k-taskam

scissors and tapestry needle.

Crochet hook: 5.0 mm
Difficulty Level: Level 1 – for beginners
US crochet terms: 
SlSt – slip stitch

1) In the part when you crochet in closed rounds, ch3 at the beginning of the row counts as a dc. Ch1 at the beginning DOESN'T count as a stitch.
2) end each round with a slip stitch in the 1st stitch or 3rd ch at the beginning of the row

3) the handbag is crocheted from 13 squares of the same size. You can crochet a larger, wider or smaller, lower bag according to the number of squares.

4) You can choose any colors or crochet in one color. I crocheted from 7 dark squares and 6 light red ones.

5) Size:  
high: 32 cm
width: 32 cm
width between handles: 19 cm
length with the handle: 50 cm


Make a magic ring

R1: ch1, 12 sc in magic ring. Then close the ring, sl st to first st (12 single sts)

R2. ch1, 1sc in each st around. Close round with sl st in 1st st from beg of row (12 sc)

R3: ch2 + 3dc cluster in 1st st, ch3, repeat *4dc cluster in next st, ch3* around. Close round with sl st in the top of the 1st cluster (12 clusters and ch3 between them)

R4: (ch3 + 2dc + ch3 + 3dc) in 1st ch sp, 3hdc in next 2 ch3sp, repeat *(3dc + ch3 + 3dc in next ch3sp, 3hdc in next 2 ch3sp* around. Close round with sl st in 3rd ch from beg of row.

Cut the yarn. Fasten off and weave in the ends


Make 13 Squares


The 13 granny squares will be arranged and folded to form the bag. Arrange the 13 granny squares as shown below.


Sew the squares by going through the outer loops of both granny squares. Note that the right sides of the granny squares should always be facing you when seaming.


Top Edging and Handles

We will now crochet the top edging of the bag, which is worked along the top edges of the granny squares.

R1: Rejoin a new yarn in the right corner of the top edge. Single crochet (sc) in each stitch around the top edges of both granny squares on one side, and then the top edges of both granny squares on the other side. Work a single crochet (sc) in each stitch around. Don’t close the round with a slip stitch (sl st); continue crocheting into the next round (R2).


R2: Slip stitch (sl st) in each stitch around. When you reach the top tip, it is time to attach the handles. Work 3 single crochets (sc) in the corner and at the same time into the ring of the handle. Continue crocheting slip stitches (sl st) around until the top tip of the next granny square and attach the ring as well. Repeat these instructions on the opposite side of the bag.

At the end of the round, close with an invisible join.


That’s it! Now you can personalize your wonderful flower granny summer bag by adding a flower, a label, or some buttons. Enjoy the summer with this amazing flower granny bag!
