This is a very handy tote, designed because I needed a bag to carry my projects around in. It works up really quickly because it's in bulky yarn and has a number of pockets in different sizes for all those bits and pieces you need to carry with you :) There is plenty of room for carrying your latest project, extra yarn, pattern and anything else you may need. The yarn woven through the handle helps prevent it from stretching. You can modify the pattern for a different weight yarn as long as you change your hook size to get a nice firm fabric. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet double crochet treble crochet front and back post stitches puff stitches crochet in the round GAUGE N/A SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS One size: Approx. 12.5ins high x 15.5ins across.
