Size:
26″ around, 9″ tall

Yarn:
Willow Yarns Coastal 100% cotton: Cedar Sky 0004, Color A
Willow Yarns Coastal 100% cotton: Red Rock Canyon 0001, Color B

Hook:
US-7, 4.5mm

Gauge:
15 sts x 8 rows = 4” [10 cm] in dc

Other supplies:
Yarn Needle

Stitches and Abbreviations:
ch ~ chain
dc ~ double crochet
sc ~ single crochet
sl st ~ slip stitch
sp(s) ~ space(s)
st(s) ~ stitch(es)

Getting Started:
This bag is made by first creating a rectangular base. Then slip stitching around the bast to create loops around the edges of the top of the base. The sides are then worked into these loops, and the straps are made with the last several rows of the bag.
The bag takes nearly all of both balls of yarn, so if your gauge is too loose, you may not have enough yarn. If you can’t get gauge, it’s better to be tight (more stitches in 4″) so you don’t run out of yarn.

Pattern:
Bag Bottom:
Ch 41 with Color A
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and each remaining ch. – {40 sc}
Rows 2-14: Turn, ch 1, sc in each st across.

Bag Sides:
Rnd 1: Turn, sl st in each st around entire bag bottom – that’s 40 sts on the long sides and 14 sts on the short sides for a total of 108 sl sts. Cut yarn and fasten off.

    Just finished this pattern. I had trouble with a part of the handles pattern, so I just sc. I did add to it though. I added a liner, I always add liners to crocheted bags. And a tassle and button with a closure. I also used different colors. Red Heart Super Saver Yarn Icelandic. Gave it to my daughter and she said it’s her new favorite.
