Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Bag is mostly single crochet, but knowledge of bobble and front post/back post double crochet is necessary for the applique.

Pattern Description:

Carrying books to class? Need a casual bag? This versatile tote bag works up quickly and easily. Make it in any color you desire! Use acrylic for a softer tote or cotton for a stiffer one. The tree applique is a great way to use up small amounts of yarn you may have lying around. Follow the pattern's suggested hook and yarn sizes or make your tote and applique bigger or smaller by using hooks and yarns of your choice.

This bag is named after my very good friend, Nicki.

Sara Leighton on

I live in Seattle, Washington with my loving husband and kitty. Since learning to crochet in college I have spent much of the past several years improving my skills and immersing myself in the subculture. In addition to crochet my hobbies include quilling, baking, and reading. My favorite color is purple. Shine on and happy hooking!
