Hook: 3,5mm

 

Abbreviations English (US) 

ch = chain

sl st = slip stitch

sc = singel crochet

dc = double crochet

3dc tog = 3 double crochet together

2dc tog = 2 double crochet together

cl = cluster

ch sp = chain space

st = stitch

 

Tips and explanations

The bottom of the bag consists of 6 petals. Do you want to make it bigger you can add a flower petal, but keep then in mind that more yarn is used.

During the first 12 rows you will skip all the chain spaces, with the exception of row 8, where it says you should work around the chain. This will be the beginning of a new petal.

From row 13 and forward are you supposed to crochet around the chain space on every row, except when it says ”skip next chain space”.

When you are crocheting a slip stitch in another slip stitch it´s usually easier to work it around the first stitch instead of through it. But of course you choose what suits you best.

And now to the funniest part, use it.

For exampel

  • Arrange a food bag, go for a walk and find a park where you can settle down fore a lovely meal.
  • Put down a towel, swimwear and a pocket book. Ready for the beach.
  • Look for yarn for the next project, put it in the bag and tell them at home that you´re going for a power walk. Look up an undisclosed place, settle down and put the hook in the yarn.

    For rows 17 & 18, from * to * the beginning says to ch3 and the end says to ch 3. So for the beginning of the repeat, would it be ch6? Or does the last ch3 only matter at the very end of that row? TIA!

    I love this pattern, quite easy to follow and hopefully it will come out just as nice for me too as it is on your pics but on row20 I think the instruction ‘Around the next ch sp: 3dc tog, around next ch sp 3dc tog.’ is doubled or am I missing something? Thank you!

    Hi I am making this for my Mum, however I am a bit confused about the hook sizes. Where are you supposed to switch hook sizes as i can’t find where it tells you to in the pattern? Thank you for your help – this is a lovely pattern!
