Hale'iwa was always one of my fave towns on Oahu, and I was always seeing woven bags shaped like this in all the little gift shops and I really liked them. Sadly, I don't weave, so I had to create my own crocheted versions!
Standing at 8" tall and 8" wide when flat, it works great as a gift bag. It would also make a cute little lunch tote for you or your minions! Plus, the eye-catching rope trim across the top gives it that perfectly polished and professional looking finish that everyone loves.
I've included variations for both a small and wide handle, a 2-color bag and a 3-color bag. Plus, It can be easily personalized with an infinite number of embellishments! I find that it makes an excellent canvas for my collection of crocheted motifs like hearts, stars and flowers...
The bag pattern itself is very beginner friendly! However, the rope trim is a bit more intermediate. So, for those beginners looking for a bit of a challenge, I've included a PHOTO TUTORIAL for the trim along with the written pattern!
I don’t normally include gauge in my patterns. However, since the stitches of this bag need to be fairly tight in order to create a stiffer fabric, I've included gauge swatch instructions!

Very cute! Mine wont stand up by itself though! I guess I need to crochet tighter!

These patterns are amazing! I am a self taught, very basic beginner and I followed these patterns with no problems at all. I even emailed the shop to ask a question on something that I was confused about as a beginner, and she wrote back explaining everything in detail. The finished products were adorable! I wish I had remembered to take pictures before we gave them away as gifts! Thank you so much!!!
