Dahlia Hexagon Handbag Crochet Pattern

In one of my recent posts I shared a hexagon pattern I had just finished creating, which urged me to create a lot more so I could create one big finished project!
So since I've gotten dozens of requests for more handbag patterns, I decided to channel my inner Mary Poppins and design this bag you see below. And just like Mary's trustworthy carpet bag, this bag has more than enough space to carry all the personal belongings I need on a daily basis!

 


What You'll Need
5.00mm Crochet Hook 
6.00mm Crochet Hook
7.00mm Crochet Hook
400g Worsted Yarn {10ply} -  I used KnitPicks Brava Worsted
Scissors
Tapestry/Wool Needle
Round Bamboo Handles - I used Clover handles, in the size 6.25"

Finished Size 
Height: 10.5"
Width: 16"

Colours
Denim - 3 Skeins
Dove Heather - 1 Skein

To create this bag, you'll need to create 18 hexagons. Each hexagon needs to measure 5 inches {From corner to opposite corner}. I would suggest that you block each hexagon before you stitch your bag together.


Here's a list of the hexagons you'll need to crochet.

One you've crocheted all your hexagons, lay out your hexagons in a design that you like or you can follow the diagram below.
Taking your 7.00mm crochet hook and some denim yarn, crochet the hexagons together using single crochets. I found THIS tutorial very helpful!
Once you've crocheted all your hexagons together, you'll be left with the shape of a bag.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.



Handle Flap/Loop
Taking your 6.00mm hook, start of by attaching your denim yarn to the top left-hand corner of the hexagon on the right side of the top of the bag. The example below should help explain this step.

Row 1- Chain 1. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet Decrease. Crochet 26 Front Post Half Double Crochets across, making sure to space them out evenly. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet Decrease. You should have 28 stitches. Turn your work.
Row 2- Chain 1, crochet 1 Back Post Half Double Crochet in the same stitch. Crochet 1 Back Post Half Double Crochet into the next 27 stitches.
Row 3- Chain 1, crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet in the same stitch. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet in the next 7 stitches. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet Decrease. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet in the next 8 stitches. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet Decrease. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet in the next 8 stitches. You should have 26 stitches.
Row 4- Chain 1, crochet 1 Back Post Half Double Crochet in the same stitch. Crochet 1 Back Post Half Double Crochet in the next 25 stitches.
Row 5- Chain 1, crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet in the same stitch. Crochet 1 Front Post Half Double Crochet in the next 25 stitches.
Row 6- Repeat row 4.
Row 7- Repeat row 5.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.



Border
Taking your 6.00mm hook and yarn (dove heather) Single Crochet  all around the top/edge of the handbag as well as the handle flap. {Note: When you reach the corners, crochet 1 single crochet in that stitch. Chain 1, then crochet 1 single crochet into the same stitch again to create a nice corner.} Slip Stitch into the first single crochet.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.


Now taking the bamboo handles, place 1 handle underneath 1 of the handle flaps. Then wrap the handle flap around the handle, and sew the end of the flap to the inside of the bag.
Repeat the same step on the other side of the bag.

Once you've completed the handbag, you'll want to line the inside of the bag using your cotton material. {Note: I used THIS tutorial, as I found it very easy and helpful.}

The Blog Hop Crochet Along: Hexagons - learn how to make eight new hexagon patterns and turn those hexagons into eight different projects!

I am super duper excited to be sharing the details of our second crochet along today! This time around we are not only creating afghans, but also multiple different projects using those hexagons!
  • Starting Monday April 6 and going through Thursday April 16th, our eight bloggers will all be sharing a new hexagon pattern. There will be a new pattern each day Monday - Thursday. Try out each pattern as we go along! It's a great way to learn and practice new techniques. You can use all of them in your final project or pick your favorites.
  • Then, on Monday April 20th, we will each be posting tutorials for turning your hexagons into something great! You pick the project and the hexagons - we will show you how to put it together! The great thing about this is that our projects range from a small to large!
If you want to crochet along with us, be sure to join our facebook group to keep up to date on all the new posts and patterns! For now, here's what you will need to get started:

Round 2~ Change yarn colour to Denim.
