The Tasty Little Chevron Bag is the perfect little evening bag – it’s got sparkle, it’s right on trend, and it’s small enough to make for that last minute party invite! And the ones I’m making are going to be extra tasty – they’re getting filled with bags of handmade goodies for my kids’ teachers!

This weekend I’m making a kitchen full of tasty treats for coworkers, teachers, and family. For the teachers, the Tasty Little Chevron Bags will get stuffed with treats, and decorated with a crocheted ornament! This year I’m making the Cedar Rapids Snowflake pattern. Add an ornament hook, and here’s what they look like together:

    I am definitely in love with this pattern. I’ve only been crocheting for 1 year and have only made scarves, afghans, and now hats (from the band up). I will definitely give this pattern a try. I would like to know how to add a satin finish for the inside of the purse.

    I knitted some chunky yarn, cabled slipper socks as a “pampered recuperation” gift for a friend of mine facing surgery. This little bag, knitted in the left over yarn from the socks, turned out to be the perfect little gift bag. I added a couple of extra rows to the too (before the handle) to accommodate the size of the socks, but it is adorable. Thanks for the great pattern.

    Love this bag! Any suggestions for how to increase the initial chain for making the bag bigger? Thank you for all the lovely and amazing patterns tht you share!

      Thank you Juli! The chevron pattern is worked in multiples of 10, so you’d need to have 60, 70, 80, 300… some multiple of 10 at the end of round 3. If you didn’t want the bag any deeper, just wider, you could add any multiple of 5 to the starting chain – that way you’ll add a multiple of 10 to round 3, as long as you don’t add another row after row 2. Does that help?
