Everyday Bags - PA-203

from Nancy Brown-Designer
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Everyday Bags - PA-203
Everyday Bags - PA-203 Everyday Bags

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Intermediate Crochet Skills

Pattern Description:

Start with a base of single crochet rounds at the bottom, change to the "Bike Chain" pattern stitch for the body of the bag, and complete with several rounds of single crochet at the top to match the bottom. Add a crocheted button and a strap also in single crochet stitches. This is such a basic, wear-everywhere bag that you will want to make one in several colors; solid colors for sophistication, multi-colors or stripes just for fun.

Size: Approximately 10 1/2" wide and 8" in depth.
Skill Level: Intermediate.
Materials: "Everyday" (a worsted weight or size 4 yarn) from Premier Yarns. Crochet hooks, U.S. sizes H and I.
Please note: Instructions come in an easy to read, easy to understand pattern and are written in U.S. crochet terminology.

Nancy Brown is the author of the best-selling books, Crochet a Dozen Hats and The Crocheter's Companion.
