Instructions (crochet ribbed bag with wooden handles):
The bag is made in 2 steps
- Step 1 – the side panel
- Step 2 – joining the sides
Step 1- The first side panel
Foundation row: Make a slip knot. Place the slip knot along the edge of one wooden handle. Working around the handle, sc 21 around the handle. Chain 1 and turn.
Row 2: insert hook in the backloop and work 1 sc, continue in the following stitches, putting 1 sc in the backloop of each st until the row is done. Chain 1 and turn.
Row 3 – Row 23: Repeat row 2. Cut and fasten off the ends.
Crocheting the edges (crochet ribbed bag with wooden handles)
Skip the first five rows counting from the handle. Make a slip knot and place it along the edges of the rows, crochet 1 sc on the edge of each row.
When you reach a corner put 2sc ( do this for the other corner). Continue with 1 sc until you reach the other side of your work. Leave the first 5 rows just as we did at the beginning.
Cut and fasten off the ends. Your first side of the bag is done. Repeat from start to make the second identical side.
Step 2 – Joining the Sides
Take the two sides align the stitches from both sides. Join with the tapestry needle along the aligned edge as shown below. As you join, insert your needle into the sc along the edges (make sure to skip the first five rows) until you reach the other side (leaving the first five rows).
Cut and fasten off the ends.
Turn your bag inside out.
Take about 10 strands of yarn. Tie them together in the middle and place two beads at the top. Tie the tassel just below the handle. Your bag is done. Watch the step by step video tutorial here.
