This classic bag gets a design “twist” from the bottom up. A textured swirl on the circular base takes the chore of counting and marking stitches out of the increase process. Eyelets, surface crochet, I-cord, and cinch tabs add professional details.

You will need nine 7/16” eyelets and an eyelet setter to finish bag as shown.

Will work best in a strong corded cotton or cotton/linen blend.

Instruction is given for completing the bag as a backpack … could easily be completed as a tote bag instead.
