Free Crochet Pattern: Grape Cluster Favor Bag

By Amy Yarbrough – 4 Comments

After designing the Carrot Favor Bag and the Strawberry Favor Bag, I couldn’t stop myself from thinking of more. Although a grape cluster bag would be unique I was certain the design would be challenging. How could I design it so that it looked like a cluster of grapes and not just another purple bag? Bobbles, of course!

Have you worked with bobbles before? It is really easy once you know how. Be sure to check out, How to Crochet: Bobble Stitch for a photo tutorial on how they are worked.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: (laid flat) 5 1/2” (14 cm) wide, 7 1/2” (19 cm) long

Materials:
Medium weight yarn (approximately 50 yards of purple, 30 yards of green)
Crochet hook H (5.00 mm)
Yarn needle
Tape measure
Stitch markers

crochet yarn size 4

Gauge:
4 sc = 1’’
4 rows = 1’’
Gauge Swatch: 1’’w x 1’’h (2.5 cm x 2.5 cm) ch 5.
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across: 4 sc
Row 2 – 4: ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across: 4 sc
Finish off.

Special Stitches
Bobble Stitch: in this pattern you will be crocheting a 4 dc bobble. However, when pulling the last loop through all the loops on the hook, do not ch-1 to finish the bobble. For more on how to crochet the bobble stitch, see here.

The bobbles look the plumpest from the wrong side so be sure to add the straps when the bag is turned with the bobbles on the wrong side.

Straps
Cut 2 strands of green yarn 28″ long. Lay bag flat with seam directly in back and place two stitch markers one either side of Round 19. This will be where your straps lay. Thread yarn needle with one of the green strands and weave in and out of the stitches, starting at one stitch marker and ending at the same stitch marker. Do the same with the other strand.

Note: when weaving the strands through the stitches be careful not to stitch into the other strand or the stitches themselves, or this will keep the bag from cinching properly and ruin your strands.
