A little crochet net bag

… I found an easy pattern (with chart!) to follow in this book ..

The picture of the bag was on page 12 …

The chart of the bag with a rectangular base (the dark blue bag in the above picture) was on pages 52/53, so …

I picked a 3mm hook and some cotton thread in navy blue and in bright yellow and, simply following the chart, this is what I came out with …

I love the contrast between the base and the body of the mini bag : 23cmx22cm (not considering the handles) : do you think the same, or not ??

The only differences from the original pattern/chart are minimal :

  • instead of one colour, two !!!
  • I added and extra round of single crochets to end the bag body, as last round
  • with the yellow thread, I added some slip stitches to embellish both the handles and the top of the bag, as you can see …

  14. I love it, such cheerful colours. My net crochet bag was a disaster as the yarn I used was only 50% cotton so it grew rather. It's now waiting to be frogged :-( x

  15. Love it Ale, now you and howling at the moon have me wanting to do some more crocheting, it has been quite a while, as I did quite a bit of plastic canvas crafting (that i have yet to share......) instead of crocheting! thanks so much for sharing on craft schooling sunday!
