Well, with school coming soon I figured I would share this fun little tech bag pattern for all you last minute gifters out there that need one more thing to add to your student’s going away gift.
My teenager actually came up with this idea.
She goes for a week every summer to see her grandma and now has just as much tech for her phone as she does make-up and clothes. So she decided she needed a nice small cinch style tech bag to put her portable charger, cords and headset in. So we came up with this fun and super easy pattern. My daughter started it up and then I went back refined and typed up the pattern.
This pattern is written using standard U.S. terms. Basic Crochet stitch knowledge is assumed.
(all are approximate)
Yarn I Used
Lion brand Bonbons – Party – 650 (I used purple, magenta, aqua, gold & orange)
Gauge isn’t super important, but just remember, if you use larger yarn and hook, the bag will be bigger Or… Vise-versa, if you use smaller yarn and hook, you will get smaller bag. See the comparison of the bag I did and the bag my daughter (below) for an example
The smaller one on the right used the same yarn, but a 3.0 mm hook (and more chains to start) It comes to approximately 5 inches in length instead of 6.5 inches.
Terms to Know:
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
slst = slip stitch
all numbers in () are total stitch count at the end of each round.
* * = Repeat instructions between * and * the number of times indicated
OK, On to the pattern!
Start with Color 1….
Round 1: 3 Sc into the 2nd ch from the hook, Sc 16, 3 Sc in the last stitch. Turn so that you can crochet into the other side of the ch 16 Sc across, slat into the first Sc (38)
See the below images for details on round 1.
Round 2: ch1, Sc, 3Sc in next stitch, 18sc across, 3Sc in next stitch, 17sc across (42)
Round 3-6: ch1, hdc around, slst into first (42)
Switch color 2

Round 26-27: ch1, hdc around, slst into first (42)
Round 28: ch 1, sc around, slst into first (42)
Round 29: ch 1, *[sc, hdc, 3dc, hdc, sc] in on stitch, skip 3*, repeat ** around to the last 2, slst in first Sc.
Weave in Ends
When you done with that, take a long amount of the yarn color you want and weave it through the shells to create your cinch. Tie your choice of beads on each end and done.
When you’re done… Take a Picture!
