The mini straw tote is about 4.5″ wide and 4.5″ tall, crochet with “Raffia With Passion” yarn and with a 3.0mm crochet hook. The raffia yarn I used was a leftover from my previous raffia crochet pattern. Since the mini straw tote is small in size, it doesn’t require a lot of yarn to make. If you do not have raffia yarn, you may use other yarn to crochet it.
