Striped Cotton Crochet Tote Bag by Gilliangladrag

Suitable for advanced beginners, - as long as you know a few basic crochet stitches you should be able to follow this pattern. This pattern uses our beautiful mercerised crochet cotton which is double knit. It has a lovely sheen to it and isn't matt like some cottons as it's mercerised. You can choose any colours you like - we have over 35 different colours to choose from! (We used colour numbers 27 light blue and 86 Pistachio) :-) xx

Striped Crocheted Tote Bag

The tote is crocheted starting with the base using the 2.75mm hook and then from the bottom upwards in stripes using the 3mm hook. The small hook size means there are smaller holes in between stitches, so the bag doesn't need lining and nothing can fall through! :-) xx You could also easily adapt the pattern for narrower or wide stripes, or for more colours! xx

Sewing on the bag handles

Once the bag was crocheted I just added the bag handles using my sewing machine. I made long shoulder straps, but you could also add shorter straps too! xx Overall finished size is approx : 45cm wide and 50cm long - so really nice and big for all your stuff! :-) xx ENJOY! xx
