10 Crochet Yoga Mat Bag Patterns

Schlepping your yoga mat to class is less than ideal—we all know they tend to be chunky and can get heavy after a few blocks. Plus, most gym bags don’t have enough room to squeeze in a mat or strap to tie them onto the sides. Enter yoga mat bags. If you’re a crocheter and a yogi, these crochet yoga mat bag patterns are worth making!

Since yoga helps reduce stress, the last thing a yogi wants is anything getting in the way of their practice. Yoga mat bags are the perfect solution to finding your flow, both in class and to and from.

Below, I’ve selected some of the best yoga mat bags to make now, whether you’re looking for one that will only tote your mat, or something that can hold your mat plus your phone and keys while you enjoy some sun salutations in the park. These picks will keep your mat secure, and your trip to class easy breezy.
