The summer bag CAL is a mystery crochet along ending up in a beautiful summer bag with a lovely texture. The bag is crocheted from the bottom and up in rounds. The result will be a beautiful bag with carrying straps and a lovely texture.

The pattern includes both a written description with images from the process and diagrams. The bag is mainly crocheted with standard stitches and all other stitches have a thorough description and corresponding image.

The pattern is free and will be posted in English (US terms) on and in Swedish on Järbo Garns Blog.
