A girl can never have too many bags right? This one is a colorful tote that would look great in so many color combinations. The stitch is a dense, solid stitch that looks almost like Tunisian crochet, but it isn’t! The pattern is written for two different sizes and two different closures, and is easy to increase or decrease size as desired and there is an option for a large external pocket and star appliques. The handles are twisted yarn for a roping effect, but you can easily replace them with ribbon or other roping of your choice. The bonus clutch is big enough for the essentials and can be hooked into the bag for easy grab ‘n go.

If you want to line this bag (or any other) follow my easy step by step photo tutorial:

Size – measured flat:
Large Bag: 15” W x 14” H
Small Bag: 15” W x 11” H
Clutch: 7” x 4 ½”

I used worsted weight cotton yarn and an I hook, but you can change up the yarn and hook combination for a different look.

My patterns are written in Standard American Terms and include pictures, stitch guides and explanations, as necessary, to make them easy to follow.
