Pattern Description:

This easy to make, easy to wear bag is just about perfect for summer weddings, pool parties, out to dinner, or just about everywhere. Crochet a front and a back, join on the sides, add a simple edging around the top, and a crocheted strap and a button. The bag measures approximately 11" across and approximately 9 1/2" from center shell to bottom point.

This pattern is designed for the Intermediate Crocheter, but a beginner with some crochet experience can complete this project. Instructions for this fabulous 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 Cotton Soft Silk, a light worsted weight or size 4 yarn. Cotton Soft Silk is a 78% cotton and 22% silk that is soft and elegant to the touch. This fabulous yarn can be purchased at Premier Yarns.
