A knitted and crocheted Christmas patchwork gift bag makes an excellent present and a wonderful gift for any occasion using other colours.
This is a step-by-step tutorial for a Christmas patchwork gift bag which has been hand knitted and crocheted. The pattern includes detailed photos with instructions how to make it -- useful for beginners. This pattern uses only basic stitches, so beginners should have no problem with it. It is written in English using Standard US crochet and knitting terminology (with UK crochet terminology if necessary).
The pattern can be made up with any yarn that you have to create your very own Christmas patchwork gift bag. Variations and experimentations are unlimited!
Skill level: easy (you only need basic knitting and crochet skills).
Materials you will need: 1) crochet yarn (I used Premium Acrylic DK yarn) red (approx. 50g), dark green (approx. 50g), snow-white (approx. 50g); 2) tapestry needles 3.5mm; 3) crochet hook (I used hook size H8/5mm). 4) tapestry needle.
This pattern is for a Christmas patchwork gift bag measuring approximately 23 cm x 32 cm (about 9 x 12.5 inches).
The size of the Christmas patchwork gift bag will vary depending on the type of yarn, hook and needle size and how tightly you knit or crochet.
