Pattern Description:

This fun hip bag is called the butterfan bag because it resembles a HUGE fan and also a butterfly so why not call it a butterfan. This pattern is worked in the BACK LOOPS ONLY; by working in the back loops it gives it a ridged effect. Also this bag is done in pieces and then later seamed together. Some of the pieces are joined as we go along and others are crocheted and then single crocheted together. This bag is made a 6 piece motif. 3 pieces for the front and 3 pieces for the back.
