A lovely curved handbag, worked seamlessly in the round. I like to make it with pure wool yarn, and finish off with a nice large natural wooden button, but any DK weight yarn of your choice would work. When using DK yarn, it is held double to crochet the bag. It is also possible to make the bag with chunky (bulky) yarn instead.
This pattern makes a medium sized handbag.
Written pattern - no charts to follow. Instructions are provided in both US and UK crochet terms.
Worked using two strands of DK yarn held together, or one strand of chunky yarn.
Gauge is not really important for this bag. It is worked with DK held double or chunky yarn on a 5mm hook, to create a tighter fabric.
