(4) Name: 'Crocheting : Whirligig Tote Bag - PA-202
Whirligig Tote Bag - PA-202

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Intermediate Crochet Skills

Pattern Description:

How cool is this bag, just asking to be taken shopping, to the beach, or just about anywhere you need a little tote bag. The front and back hexagons each measure approx 12" with a 2" gusset on each. A picot edging and crocheted button adds interest to the top opening, and a V-stitch shoulder strap with a picot edging ties it all together. The finished bag measures approximately 28" in circumference (or around) and approximately 12" in depth with a 26" shoulder strap.

This pattern is designed for the Intermediate Crocheter. Instructions for this wonderful carry-all 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 "Orly", a worsted weight yarn, using a U. S. size H crochet hook. "Orly" is a wonderful acrylic yarn with flecks of rayon giving it a cotton-tweed look. For more information, or to purchase this yarn, please contact Creative Yarn Source.

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