Construction Method
The pattern starts at the base of the bag. Increases are worked until a circular shape is formed, the base is then continued upwards strengthening the bottom part of the bag before the net
structure is worked on the top section. After the net section is complete, work a folded trim which joins into the straps of the bag.
