Pattern description from One Skein: “If you’re like me, you can never have too many little bags to organize accessories, makeup, and small treasures. I used a variety of crochet stitches and geometric shapes for the three shown here. Each bag takes far less than a skein of yarn, so there’s no reason you can’t make all three. But be forewarned, the more you make, the more you’ll want!”

Finished Size: About 7” (18 cm) square.

  • Sizes F/5 (3.75 mm).
