Raised Diamonds Cinched Tote Crochet Pattern


This crocheted bag offers amazing texture and color as well as durability. The Raised Diamonds stitch creates one amazing 3-D pattern in your crocheted work that will leave people asking, How did you do that?

The Raised Diamonds Stitch that I utilize in this bag and several other designs I’ve created features a three-dimensional texture and pattern that grabs the eye and makes people ask, How did you do that? Unlike my previous purses, which close with a zipper, I wanted to design a bag with a sewing-free closure. Thus, this cinched tote was born.

I would rate this pattern Intermediate in difficulty because it involves working in several rows at a time to create the raised diamond design that stands out against the background of the other stitches. It takes 9 rows to complete the construction of the diamonds, so be patient and enjoy watching your diamonds come together. It’s a fun challenge with rewarding results! I’ve included large pictures with the instructions that I hope will give you visual examples to assist you in learning the new techniques.
