I designed this special stitch out of an urge for a beautiful texture that would also look great striped. This bag is extremely beautiful. The whole piece is totally seamless to the eye. You cannot tell where each round begins, throughout the whole bag. The stitching creates a deep, waffle-y or diamond texture. And when paired with the seasons hottest color trends, it looks amazing!

GAUGE Not important, as you can use different hook/yarn combos to change up the size SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The bag in the photos measures 11.5" tall when spread open and sitting on a flat surface. The handles add 8". And finally, when laid flat with the bottom pushed out, the bag is 11.5" wide and 23" tall, including the handles.
