This useful mosaic crochet tote bag has been designed to be reversible. The pattern is lovely on the inside as well as the outside. The main body is worked in rows sideways, then the top and base sections are added. The base is reinforced with a plastic strip so heavier things can be carried without stretching the bag.
The handle is reinforced with cord so again it won’t stretch.

The sample was made using Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton in Cafe au Lait and Mint but any DK to Worsted weight cotton yarn can be used.

The bag is approximately 32cm (8 in) wide x 34cm (6in) high. The base is 4cm (1½in) deep.

Abbreviations are in UK terminology but US equivalents are given.

The pattern is 14 pages long and includes full written instructions, charts and photo’s showing how to use the mosaic crochet technique - it is much easier than it looks !!!

Many thanks to my lovely testers: Donna Richardson, Alejandra Rodriguez and Antoinette Kirby Boynton.
