Pictured last is the smaller version.

I wanted a BIG crocheted bag to hold a bunch of my stash and this bag can do the job! It’s sturdy! It’s versatile! It’s expandable! The handles are adjustable! I have written another size option, which will result in a bag that is approximately 25% smaller that this Crocheted Carry-All. I hope you enjoy crocheting it as much as using it.
Unstuffed, these are the approximate dimensions of the larger bag. The smaller bag dimensions are in parenthesis. The flat, round bottom of this bag measures 10” in diameter (7.5” for the smaller bag). The height is 15” (11”) from the base to the beginning of the handle. The circumference at its widest part is approximately 38” (28 1/2”) around (which will expand due to the mesh pattern). The handles are 30” (23”) long, starting off at 3” (2 1/2”) and decreasing down to 2 1/2” (2”) wide to end at the tapered tips. The handles are adjustable and may be tied and untied to any desired length.
It’s very fun and EASY to crochet!

The smaller size is just right for the market. It make a nice beach bag, too!
