Sweetheart Bobble Bag (Free Pattern)

We are just a few weeks into January but I’m seeing a lot of talk about Valentine’s Day. I know it’s not until next month but for makers like us, we often like to plan and prepare ahead of time. We like to figure out what to make for upcoming holidays and special celebrations, and gather all the yarn and materials needed for those projects. This is my first pattern release of 2020 and is a great little project for any skill level. It takes about an hour to make and is perfect for handing out to friends or a special someone.

Fill it with treats or a card to spread some love and smiles on February 14th. If you would like a printable version, please head over to my Ravelry where you can download a free .pdf version of the pattern. You can find the link at the bottom of this post. Here is the Sweetheart Bobble Bag:

Notes:

– This pattern uses the bobble stitch. If you are not familiar with it, I have provided a quick written walk through below.

Stitches Used:

– single crochet
– half double crochet
– bobble stitch

Materials Needed:
– 1-2 skeins of Red Heart Super Saver.
– 5mm hook
– 4mm hook
– ribbon (if desired for handle) with appropriate needle and thread for attaching to project.
– scissors
– yarn needle

Special Stitch Tutorials:

Bobble Stitch – Yarn over and insert hook into stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through first 2 loops on hook (2 loops now on hook). Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook (3 loops now on hook). Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook (4 loops now on hook). Yarn over and insert hook into same stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook (5 loops now on hook). Yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on hook. Do not chain to close the cluster, instead place 1 sc into the next stitch.

Pattern:
Using your 5mm hook, Chain 18.

Row 1:
Place 1 single crochet into the second chain from hook and into each stitch until the end of the row. Chain 1 and turn (17).

Row 2:
Place 1 single crochet into the second chain from hook and into each stitch until the end of the row. Chain 1 and turn (17).

Row 3:
Place 1 single crochet into the second chain from hook and into each stitch until the end of the row. Chain 1 and turn (17).

Row 4:
Place 1 single crochet into the first stitch. Make one bobble into the next stitch. Complete this pattern of 1 bobble, 1 single crochet until the end of the row, ending with a single crochet. Chain 1 and turn (17). (there should be 8 bobbles)

Repeat rows 1-4 until you reach row 35 which should be a single crochet row. You should have 8 bobble rows within your piece.

*at this point, you may choose to fasten off and complete the edging in a different colour. If you don’t want to change colours, leave your current yarn attached and continue on*

Fold your piece in half so the bobbles are facing out and in a horizontal row.

Edging:
Insert your hook into the top left corner. Take special care to ensure you are grabbing both the front and back panels of the bag. Create 1 single crochet. Continue placing 1 single crochet into each appropriate space down towards the bottom of the bag. Make 2 single crochet in the bottom left corner to create a curve into the bottom edging. Continue placing 1 single crochet along the bottom. Place 2 single crochet into the bottom right corner space. Continue up the right side of the bag placing 1 single crochet along the edge until you reach the top right corner. Fasten off and weave in your ends.

Creating The Handle:
You may choose to use themed ribbon as the handle. Please cut the length desired and use a needle and thread to stitch into inside seams of the top of the bag.

If you would like to crochet a handle:
Switch to your 4mm hook. With the yarn used for the bag, chain 4 and place 1 half double crochet into the second chain from your hook. Chain 1 and turn (3).

Complete 34 rows. Fasten off and weave in ends. Stitch the ends of the handle into the inside seams of the top of the bag.

Your bag is complete. Fill it with Valentine sweets, notes or special little cards.
