I used DK weight yarn throughout and American Terminology. The main part of the bag should be crocheted with a smaller hook than the basketweave, I used a 3.5mm for the main bag, and 4.5mm for the basketweave. The handles are also crocheted with the 3.5mm hook. The bag measures approximately 6.5″/17cm wide, 4″/10cm tall.
My grandma taught me to knit and sew when I was a wee bairn. Over the years I've learned how to do macrame, cross stitch, beading and many other crafts, but it wasn't until 2008 that I learned to crochet.
