Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing skills
  • Intermediate crochet skills
  • A knowledge of fpdc's and bpdc's
  • Ability to follow written pattern

Pattern Description:

I came up with this pattern, kind of on a whim, actually. But I love how it came out! The bag is quite versatile. It could be a good book bag, or an on-the-go project bag. For the average-speed crocheter, it can be finished in about 5 -or 6 hours. If you are handy with a needle and thread (or a sewing machine), you could add a quick lining onto it as well.

Because of the fpdc/bpdc stitches, I would say this is an easy intermediate pattern.

The pattern is written in American crochet terms.
