This bag was designed with summer in mind. It can hold all the essentials for a summer trip. It has a sturdy twisted handle and a snap closure.

The bag is worked from the top down in the round creating the chevron shape and turning at the end of each round. The bottom two triangles are then worked in rows to create the sections either side of the central V.

The handle is worked separately using either a fringe twister or twisted by hand, and then attached along the whole length of each side to give a secure and decorative result.

The bag is approximately 24cm (9½in) wide at the base and 23cm (9in) wide at the top of the ’V’.
The length from the bottom of the ‘V’ cut out to the base is 13cm (5in), and from the top of the bag to the bottom of the ‘V’ is 9cm (3½in).

The handle measures 100cm (39½in). The handle can be made to any required length.

Many thanks to my testers goretet and faemeow :)
