Crochet Candy Cane Santa Bag
This super cute Candy Cane Santa Bag was designed by our very own Diva Dan aka Daniel Zondervan. The bag is 12″ Dia x 18″ Tall. It is using Bernat Blanket Yarn.
It’s a great bag that mixes in the Braided Single Crochet appearance that you see. It’s not hard but we have classified this as intermediate. The bag starts in the middle of the bottom base and when it works up to the top brim of the bag.

Sides of Bag from Base
Row 15 and onward: Sc with colour A is 1st sc. Attach Colour B by doing sc in the next stitch. Attach Colour C by doing sc in the next stitch. All three colours are now ready to play.
The Single Crochet Braiding technique relies on 3 colours. The act of carrying the yarn creates the braided look that you can see. This happens on the opposite side of the project. So when looking at the project, you will see it from the inside point of view and the braid is happening on the other side. Remember to keep the yarn tot when doing this technique for consistency.
*Grab Colour A yarn over the other two yarns and sc in next stitch and then drop that colour. Grab colour B yarn over the next two yarns and sc in next stitch, drop that colour. Grab colour C yarn over the next two yarns and sc in the next stitch and drop that colour. Continue repeating from the first colour and keep repeating. Single crochet in the revolutions in this manner until you have a tennis ball size ball of yarn and fasten off Colour B and C. Keep only the red attached.
Yarn will get twisted once in a while, you must twirl your project to untwist the yarn leading to the yarn ball.
You will no longer work in continuous rounds.
- With Colour A, ch 1, 1 sc in each stitch around. Join with a sl st to beginning sc.
- Ch 2, *hdc in next stitch, sl st in next. Repeat * around. Join with a sl st to beg ch-2.
- Repeat Step 1
- Repeat step 1, Fasten off and weave in ends.
- Chain with colour B or C approx 36″ long. Fasten off and weave in ends.
- Thread through loops of the hdc around.
- Attach pompoms to the end of the rope.
Comments on “Crochet Candy Cane Santa Bag Pattern”
Do you have a printable version of the pattern? When I try to print it from what you have shown, the adds print over the top of the pattern!
I just made you a free downloadable PDF, should be ready to link in about 10 minutes. Just refresh the page if you don’t see it. It’s a blue download button now. Thanks for the heads up and an opportunity to update this article.
Do you have a video for this pattern. I’m a beginner and find the pattern confusing without actually seeing it done. I love this bag & really want to make it.
Unfortunately we don’t not at this time. where is it you are getting stuck?
I love this pattern. I’ve made a 3 of them to date. Two were smaller versions of the original. I only did rounds 1 to 7 for the base instead of the full 11 rounds. Ended up with 48 sts.
One I gave away to my grandson’s teacher for Christmas and she loved it. I’ve shown the picture of the smaller version to my Mother and she was quite interested in the item. So I will be making one for her and sending it to her.
Thanks for a great pattern Dan.
I really love this gift bag! I can’t find the Bernat blanket yarn in green anywhere, so I am going to try a different yarn. Thank you so much for this very unique pattern. It will be perfect for my mom’s Christmas gifts! Also, I see many other possibilities for using other colorways for birthdays, etc.
