​Two Hour Crochet Bag

​Two Hour Crochet Bag

Before you get started, make sure you have the following:

About 250 yards of worsted weight yarn (I like this cotton yarn and this acrylic yarn)
An I hook (Clover hooks are my favorites!)
A safety pin for marking stitches.
A flower or other embellishment to spice it up!

NOTE: the chain 2 at the beginning of the first four rounds does NOT count as the first stitch – you will need to work in that stitch you would normally skip. You will be joining rounds in the first true DC stitch rather than the top of the turning chain.

Ch 3.
Round 1: Work 12 DC in the first chain from hook. Join in the top of the first DC. (12)
Round 2: ch 2. 2 DC in each stitch around. Join to the top of the first DC. (24)
Round 3: ch 2. *DC in the next stitch, 2 DC in the next* around. Join in the top of the first DC. (36)
Round 4: ch 2. *DC in the next 2 stitches, 2 DC in the next* around. Join in the top of the first DC.(48)
Round 5: Ch 3. *DC, ch 1* in each stitch. Do not slip stitch to the top of the starting chain. Instead, insert your hook in the first ch1 space of round 5 and continue with round 6 (see photo above).

NOTE: Please understand that since you’re working in spiral, there will be a gap when you first transition to working in spiral. If you’d like to minimize this gap, make the last stitch of round 5 and the first stitch of round 6 a hdc.

Rounds 6-23: DC, ch 1 in each ch 1 space.
At the end of round 23, join with a slip stitch to the first DC of the previous round.
Round 24: Ch 2. DC in each ch 1 space.
Round 25: ch 2. DC BETWEEN each DC of the previous round.
Handles will be worked in rows. The Ch 2 does count as a stitch here. I work between stitches, but you could work in the stitches, too.
Row 1: Ch 2. DC in the next 9 stitches. (10)
Row 2: ch 2, turn. DC decrease in the next two stitches. DC in the next 5. DC decrease in the last two stitches. (8)
Row 3: ch 2, turn. DC decrease in the next two stitches. DC in the next 3. DC decrease in the last two stitches. (6)
Rows 4-15: ch 2, turn. DC in the next 5 stitches (6). (Continue on if you’d like longer straps)
Cut yarn and weave ends. Fold your bag in half as evenly as possible to determine where to start the other side of the handle (I skipped 15 stitches) and work the handle on the other side of the bag. Single crochet the two sides of the handle together on the wrong side.
