Net bag

A detailed pattern on how to crochet a storage bag or string net bag. Such a crocheted bag can be used for different purposes: as a fruit, as a bag for washing, as a gift bag, for storing solid shampoo, and much more.

For crocheting, you can use any yarn and a suitable hook. I am crocheting the bag of YarnArt Jeans yarn color 05, hook 3 mm. My yarn consumption is 70 grams.

  1. Hello, is the Split Double Crochet mentioned in this pattern the same as a split half double crochet? I can’t seem to find any reference to a Split Double Crochet online to learn how to do it.
