A quick litte project if you need a cute wrapping for a dear note or a voucher.
If you stuff the bag you can also use it simply for decoration.

Pattern is written in US terms.

You’ll need:

Materials:
Yarn:
approx. 33 yards/30m red and 33 yards/30m white, sraps of green (all DK weight)
Hook:
Size G (US)/ 4,00mm
Notions
Darning Needle

Gauge:
isn’t critical.
My bag turned out 12cm/4,7” wide 14cm/5,5” height.

Stitches you need to know (They are not explained!):
Chain
Slip Stitch
Single Crochet
Half Double Crochet
Double Crochet

Two tips from my testers (not included in pattern sheet):
If you don’t feel like weaving in ends you could also carry the unused yarn along one side of the bag while you crochet the stripes.
If you prefer to crochet the bag in worsted weight you’ll end up having a bag approx. 5” wide and 6” height.
