FREE crochet pattern
Show your pride, and carry your stuff. Introducing the Pride Bag, the perfect bag for all of your rallies. Crocheted in your choice of flag colors, this little bag will fit a phone, cash, card, and a lip balm. The crossbody design makes it easily adjustable; just tie a knot in the strap! Now you can wear your flag with pride, and make one for all your friends, too.
(Please consider creating a project page in Ravelry if you make this bag, and I would be ever so grateful if you’d give the pattern a rating, as well!)

~ Pay attention to how rounds are joined. They are joined differently on even rows than they are on odd rows. This keeps your “seam” from creeping across the front or back of your bag. If you join the way the pattern states, then your “seam” will disappear into the side edge.
~ Please make the strap as long as you want it. Fully customizable. All bodies are different and deserve a bag that fits comfortably.
~ I did not include instructions as to color changes. Each flag is different, so simply join your new color with a sl st into the first st of any round, whenever you need to.
Show your PRIDE!
1) Sc in 2nd ch from hook, and in each ch around, working all the way around your starting chs (so first up one side, and then down the other.) Join to 1st sc with sl st. = 40 sc
2) Ch 1, *sc, ch 1, sk 1; rep from * around. Join.
3) Ch 1, sc in next ch-1 sp,* ch 1, sk 1, sc in next ch-1 sp; rep from * around. Rather than ending with “ch 1, join,” simply omit the ch-1 and join with sc.
4) Ch 1, sc in sp created by your joining sc in prev round, ch 1, sk 1, *sc in ch-1 sp, ch 1, sk 1; rep from * around. Join.
5-22 ) Rep Rounds 3-4, changing colors when you want, adding or subtracting rounds to get you the bag you want (remember that adding/subtracting rounds will alter your yardage requirements.)
23) Ch 1, sc in each st and ch-1 sp around. Join.
After joining your last round, make your strap by chaining until it’s as long as you want it to be, then join with sl st to other side of bag. I chained 120 for the bag shown above.
Now you’re ready to show off! I sure hope you enjoyed this pattern. If you’re interested in making more Pride stuff, my Dad’s Can Cozy pattern is free and works beautifully with any of the flag colorways.
I’d love to see your bag! Post a pic to your favorite social media and tag @RowsAndRoses and #RowsAndRosesPrideBag so we can all see what you’ve made.
