Pattern Description:

Sweet Shells make a wonderful little cotton bag that is just perfect for summer days. Simple shell and post stitches are crocheted around a base of single crochet stitches. Finish the bag with a shell stitch edging, shoulder straps and a crocheted button. Add a crocheted flower for an eye-catching embellishment. The finished Bag measures approx 20" in diameter and approx 7 1/2" in depth.

The pattern is designed for the Intermediate Crocheter, but the flower embellishment requires some advanced crochet experience. Instructions for this delightful little Bag come in an easy to read, easy to understand pattern and are written in U.S. crochet terminology.

The model shown in the photograph is crocheted in Emilia, a sports weight yarn, using a U.S. size F crochet hook. Emilia is a wonderful 100% cotton yarn that can be purchased at Creative Yarn Source.

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