Pop of Pink Vertical Chevron Bag

Crochet
July 2014
Aran (8 wpi) ?
12 stitches and 6 rows = 4 inches
6.0 mm (J)
100 - 125 yards (91 - 114 m)
12" wide x 10" tall. Straps are 20" long
This pattern is available for free.

This fat bottom bag uses a chevron stripe in an unusual way, instead of the traditional horizontal stripes, I have emphasized the chevron in a vertical pattern.

The change up of chevrons along with the “pop of pink” make this bag a unique and fun way to add punch to your wardrobe.

Stiches Used

FDC- foundation double crochet- Tutorial HERE
Chain 3 (counts as 1st fdc). Yarn over and insert hook in 3rd chain from hook. Yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop creating a sl st, (this is an important step but easy to forget). Yarn over again and pull through first two loops on hook (two loops remaining). Yarn over again and pull through last two loops on hook. This completes the second fdc (remember your 1st ch3 counted as the 1st fdc). To stitch the next fdc, yarn over and insert the hook into the sl st made in the 2nd fdc and repeat from
