This playful summer tote bag is designed to be functional and stylish. The bag is constructed by working off of the unique, rope-like handle. Worked quickly in half double crochet, this bag is fun and beginner friendly!

This tote is worked by holding two strands of yarn together for a thick, structured bag. You will construct three pieces: two sides, and a bottom. The pieces will be seamed together using mattress stitch. A full step-by-step video tutorial is available alongside this pattern.

The rope-like handles of the bag are constructed with the sides in one piece.

This tote bag is available as a kit with Lion Brand Yarn. Click here to shop the kit.
