Recommended Supplies for Crochet Bags
Crochet hooks - obviously! I would recommend metal or ergonomic crochet hooks to make sure you’re comfortable while you’re working on your tote bag!
Strong and durable yarn! All of our tote patterns below are made with durable yarn fit for bag making, such as Sari Silk Ribbon Yarn, Ombre Chiffon Ribbon Yarn, 3-Ply Hemp Yarn, Premium Handspun Silk Yarn, and more!! I’d also suggest a thicker weight yarn for new beginners.
