I really want a hobo bag like this one:



I've been searching for a pattern, but I haven't found one yet. Do any of you have a suggestion, or do you know how to make one?

If you want a particular pattern, the first place to try is Crochet Pattern Central.  They have tons of stuff.

Here are some patterns:
Sling Bag
Hobo Bag
Easy Crocheted Bag

Are you adding sequins, too?

I did check out Crochet Pattern Central. That's the first place I go when I want to find a pattern. I guess I just didn't look hard enough! Thanks for your suggestions, and let me know if you find any more.

i know this is an old post, but i've been searching for like an entire month for that same bag pattern. i finally gave up and settled on this http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/sanibel/sanibel.html, but there's a lady on craftster that responded to me after i put up a desperate post looking for the pattern lol and she said she'd figure out a pattern for me, i'm still waiting for it but if you haven't found anything yet, let me know! or if you HAVE, that would be awesome too!

Whatever pattern you start with, you will have to string all the beads/sequins/paillettes/shells whatever first.....then, just follow the pattern but push a bead or whatever you are using up to the hook and work your stitch around that bead (usually a chain st), then continue on with your pattern to the next spot.

With that particular pattern from Berroco, there aren't any natural spaces in the piece...it is all sc, all the way round, no chain stitches. So, you'd have to incorporate the bead or sequin into every fourth stitch, say (depending on how big your sequin is, and how many you want on the bag). Or, you can do a chain st with the sequin on it, and continue right on with the pattern, skipping no stitches at all.
