String Bag No. 3
Materials: Any sturdy cotton or cotton blend in approximately DK weight will do – designer used Aunt Lydia’s Denim Quick-Crochet (75% cotton, 25% acrylic).
Yardage: around 150 to 300 yds, depending how long you choose to make it. 20 repeats of openwork rounds makes a nice gift bag (as pictured), 30 would be a nice capacity for a full-sized shopping bag.
Needles: designer used 16 inch, 4.5 mm (US 7) circulars for the body, and 3.5 mm (US 4) DPNs for
Gauge: designer got about 4 rounds of the lace pattern to the inch – but gauage probably isn’t very important here.
