Allons Mes Ami is a crocheted tote rooted in the styling of a Japanese Knot bag. This bag is worked in continual rounds like a spiral with color changes at stitch changes. Perfect to use for every day or as a project bag, when empty, the bag lies flat and is ideal for packing in a travel suitcase. An optional button closure helps to span the top gap.

Allons Mes Ami is a larger version of the Bitty Bag. This version uses the Japanese Knot Bag closure rather than a drawstring. Consider adding a fabric lining, snap closures or a longer handle. The embellishment is up to you.

To make a larger version, use worsted weight yarn and a US 7 hook.
