Basic Skills Necessary:

  • single crochet
  • chain one
  • 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.
