Instructions

Start (Row 1)
Start with a slip knot and then stitch 6 chains. Form a ring with the chain by joining the last chain
stitch with the current chain.
Row 2
Chain 3 and then work 19 double crochet around the ring. Join the 19 th chain stitch with the 1 st chain
stitch with a slip stitch.
Row 3
Chain 3 again and work 2 double crochet next to each other; and then chain 2. Repeat. Join the last
and first stitch with a slip stitch.
Row 4
Chain 3 and work 3 dc into the next 2-chain space. Repeat.
Row 5
Chain 3 and flatten the current chain with the previous row. Work 6 dc into the next loop. Draw the
last stitch down to the next chain 2 space. Work 6 dc into the next space; draw down the last stitch
into the next chain 2 space. Repeat.
Row 6
Work 3 single stitches to reach the middle stitch of the petal. Chain 6. Skip the next 6 stitch, work 1
sc into the 7 th stitch and then chain 6. Repeat.
Row 7
Work 1 dc into the current stitch and 2 into the next. Repeat.
Row 8

Chain 4 and work a sc into the next space. Repeat. End this row a slip stitch.
Row 9
Chain 4 and work a sc into the next space. Repeat. End this row a slip stitch.
Continue until the bag reaches the required height. Increase the number of chain stitches for the
bottom part until the bag reaches the required width and then keep the number of chain stitch fixed
until it reaches the end.
Step 10
Work 1 sc into 1 stitch and 1 sc into the next loop. Repeat.
Step 11
Work 1 dc into each stitch.
Step 12
Stitch the number of chains that is required to reach the length of the handle; this is where the
handle starts. Work a sc into the stitch where you want to end the handle. Work 1 dc into each
stitch of the handle.
Similarly, crochet the other handle on the opposite part of this one.
Once the handle is complete, you can cut off yarn by keeping an extra 2 inches. Use a needle to
stitch the remaining thread into the stitches.
