Adults Tote Bag

A bright yellow chunky knit quality tote bag.

 


This bright new tote bag is made all in one piece, which itself makes it an ideal beginners project.

For the basic bag pattern I have used three strands of Hayfield Bonus DK Extra Value, shade 0957.  This is a tumble dry and 100% acrylic yarn that should stand up to a few washes at least.  You could of course use one strand of chunky wool if you chose.  You will need about 140 meters of yarn for each strand.

Stitches you will use include chain, slip stitch, single crochet, half double crochet, and picot.

The finished bag measures 26cm square and weighs just under 130g.  If you choose you could adjust the pattern to make a smaller or larger bag too.

Of course decorate it with your own choice of applique or use the flower pattern provided with a 2.5 to 3 mm button as I have.

Why not give it a complementary lining to keep all your smalls together too.  The choices are endless.

The pattern is expected to be in my Etsy online shop within days.
