Crochet sunburst hexagon bag- free crochet pattern
The last pattern of 2023 will be this easy crochet hexagon bag! After all the Christmas rush and crocheting Christmas gifts I think it is time to make something for ourselves, Don’t you agree?
I have made this crochet sunburst hexagon bag a few months ago, but while working on other projects and patterns this went straight to the WIPs pile. After all the Christmas presents I found a little time to write the pattern down and it is time to share it with you.
The bag is made of 7 hexagons which we will join and turn into a bag. The yarn I am using is one of my favorites- Hobby lobby Yarn bee solid. This yarn is perfect as it is not fussy, it has amazing texture and the weight is great for crochet bags. It has a variety of colors in solids and variegated.
I love the sunburst granny square and it inspired the design of my hexagon. I love how it looks with almost every color combination. You can even use your leftover balls and make yourself a crochet scrap bag.
The crochet hexagon bag can be made with light worsted-weight yarn or worsted-weight yarn. The hexagon has some textured stitches which will make it pop out like mini flowers. You can make it one-colored or use a few colors as I did.
If you love making bags or just need a new one you can check our Alpine bag, Talia market bag, or Sofia bag.

How to join our crochet hegaon. First place one crochet hexagon in the middle with wrong side facing you. Put a second one onto it with right side facing you. One of these crochet hexagon will be for your front and one for the backside of your bag. Then fold your remaining 5 hexagon into 2 and place them around the center piece. Leave the upper side blank.
Take your tapestry needle and a long piece of your main color, start sewing the pieces. First we will sew the center piece with all of the hexagon surrounding it. Flip your bag and sew the center piece of your backside.
Now we will have only the sides to sew together.
Row 1: CH 6, SC in 2nd from your hook, SC in each remaining, CH 1, turn (5)
Row 2: SC in each across, CH 2, turn (5)
Row 3: DC in next, Puff in next, DC in next 2, CH 1, turn (5)
Row 4: SC in each across, CH 1, turn (5)
Row 5: SC in each across, CH 2, turn (5)
Repeat rows 3-5 till you have your desired length. I made my strap shorter as I like it like that. it is approximately 15cm.
Make the last 2 rows only with SC stitch.
