Welcome to the Boho Vibes Bag, a crochet pattern. This is a collaboration with Clover USA and I’m so honored to be back on their blog as a guest designer. This pattern was created was last Fall when I needed a bag to gift a friend. She always has a carefree style and I wanted to make something that represented a carefree yet functional style.
The Boho Vibes Bag is worked up in the round, the handles are created on the sides and then slip stitching them together. The Boho Vibes Bag works up quickly and is a relaxing project with repetitive stitches. It has a deep base and can serve to hold many things from your yarn to a towel and books for a day at the beach or pool. You can use two strands of cotton as an alternative to using one strand of bulky yarn.
I used my Amour Crochet Hook by Clover USA in this pattern and I love my Amour Hooks. The hook pictured was originally bought back in 2013 and has many, many hours of crocheting time logged. Amour Crochet Hooks were my first set of hooks I bought and I’ve been satisfied with every use since.
I hope you love this fun and quick pattern! Please share with me on social media. You can follow me on Instagram HERE and on Facebook HERE! Tag me @pinkplumeriamaui and use #pinkplumeriamaui.

Fasten off a tail to sew in later.
To make 2nd handle, going back to the body of bag where you left off on the 18 sc, skip 22 stitches and attach yarn. The count will be 18 sc, skip 22 stitches, sc 18, skip 22 stitches so handles are perfectly centered.
Repeat the steps for the handle you just made. Do not fasten off on the second handle.
To attach the top of handles, turn the bag inside out, line up the top of handles, and going through both handles sl st them together. Don’t fasten off. Turn bag right side out.
To reinforce handles, have the right side of the bag facing you, ch 1 and on inside of handle sc, sc around. Sl st to top of 1st sc, leave a tail to sew in, and fasten off. Repeat on the other side.
Sew in your loose ends and enjoy your new bag!
