The Tricolor Tote has so many fun details - changing stitch patterns, fun tassels, braided handles - but its soft color palette and orderly structure bring balance to this fast and fun (and free!) crochet pattern!

The Tricolor Tote was designed using Lion Brand Fast-Track, which is a really fun and unique yarn! Soft cotton/poly blend in a tape-like shape, it’s like crocheting with your favorite t-shirts. And I love the look it gives projects!

This tote is also another pattern on my never-ending search for the ideal bag handles. I’ve tried many different methods over the years, but I think this is the first time I’ve tried braids! This yarn lends itself really well to these braided handles, with only a tiny bit of stretch, lots of strength, and some great color play that ends in tassels!

If this handle style isn’t to your taste, you can always add pre-purchased handles, or crochet your own using the linked tutorial!
