Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet

  • working in the round

Pattern Description:

The Decommissioned Tote Bag - in other words, a bag to use up your scraps, leftovers, and odds and ends of yarn - is an easy tote bag, a great way to not only carry around your stash, but to use it up as well!

Lots of options when you buy this pattern - two sizes in two different shapes, either a round bottom or a rectangle bottom. Bag is made in the round, with the handles worked flat, and the only seam is sewing the second half of the handle in place.

Use any acrylic or cotton yarn in your stash, and freely mix both if you want.

My name is Anastacia, and I am the scrap yarn/one skein queen. I buy my yarn mainly at yard sales/thrift stores, so I got used to making do with what I could find. So most of my patterns are designed to use up the odd skeins or leftovers in your life, and are geared towards beginner crocheters or those who just want a fast, easy, but still pretty item.
