For granny square bag patterns, you need yarn, and a hook. Cotton yarn is a good idea for bags. It is durable and holds it’s shape well.

To keep your bag the same size as the designer, you will want to do a gauge square to make sure you have the crochet hook and tension. You don’t want you squares to be too loose.
