​Bright Crochet Bag With a Flower

Abbreviations

Ch-1 space – the space between 2 sc’s formed by making a ch st between them
Ch-3 space – the space between 2 sc’s formed by making 3 ch st’s between them
Sc – single Crochet
Sl st – slip stitch
St – stitch
() – Repeat all instructions between parentheses the amount of times specified.

Materials

Susan Bates 10 mm crochet hook
T shirt yarn – Alternatively you can buy some (like Scheepjes Noodle or Premier Craft-Tee Yarn).
Yarn needle for finishing off

Instructions

Foundation Chain: Chain 24.

Round 1: This round is made using the linen stitch. See THIS TUTORIAL if you need visual help. Sc in one loop only of the fourth ch from the hook. (Ch,sc) in one loop only of every second st across. (Ch,sc) into the last (same) st again and then continue working around the foundation chain inserting your hook into both remaining loops of each stitch you work into. (Ch, sc) into the remaining loops of every second st across. When you reach the end of the round, (ch, sc) into the same (lasts) stitch. {24 linen stitches in total – the initial 3 ch’s count as a linen stitch}
Round 2: Continuing around: (Ch 3, sc) into the space formed by the initial ch-3 at the beginning of round 1, which counts as your first ch-1 space. (Ch 3, sc) into every ch-1 space around. {24 (ch-3, sc) groups}
Rounds 3 – 24: Repeat Round 2, working into the ch-3 spaces of the previous round. {24 (ch-3, sc) groups}

When you have completed the last round, fold your bag flat. The last stitch should now be 2 st’s away from the fold. Because you are working in a spiral, the first st of every round will creep steadily to the right.

If you want a longer or shorter bag, add more rounds/leave some rounds out until you get the desired length. If you alter the length, the last st of your last round will fall in a different place (that is on the fold, before the fold or waaay past the fold). Just make sure that you finish 2 st’s past the fold. So add a few more stitches or leave a few out.

You will now make the handles.

Handles

Round 1: Starting 2 st’s past the fold: Ch 15. Skip 8 ch-3 spaces. (Ch,sc) into the next four ch-3 spaces. These 4 linen stitches should fall over the fold on the other side. Ch 15 again and skip 8 ch-3 spaces. (Ch, sc) into the last 4 ch-3 spaces.
Round 2: *(Ch,sc) 9 times, working into the ch-15 space from the previous round. (Ch,sc) into each of the next 3 ch-1 spaces.* Repeat from * to * one more time.
Round 3: (Ch, sc) into each of the 24 ch-1 spaces from the previous round. Sl st in the next ch-1 space and fasten off. Work away your tails of yarn.
