Types of handles

Wood handles come in a large variety of shapes and sizes. For this example, I used circular wood handles that were about 5 inches in diameter.

You can use this same method to attach wood handles of other sizes and types as well. Try it with bamboo handles, oval handles, rectangular handles, or D-shaped handles.

Different ways to attach wood handles

Crocheting over the handles is only one method of attaching wood handles to a crochet bag. You can also sew them on in different positions to create different effects. They can be attached with separate tabs of rings. It’s also possible start your crochet from the handle, but that means crocheting the whole bag with a heavy handle attached.
