When I think of a bag, I usually think of totes coz they can carry a part of your closet easily. I’m sure many of you will agree to this. So for me it HAS to be a tote. And this beauty here is a classic example of my choice
I used 100% spun acrylic yarn
Crochet hook size 3.5mm
Some spare cloth for lining
Needle and thread to sew the lining
So for this you need a granny square, solid or otherwise. Now the size of your bag will depend on this square as it will be the base of the bag .I did a total of 14 rows and mine came out a decent size. Next, count the stitches across on one side of the square and divide it into half. Mark the mid stitch with a stitch marker. Next, you have to skip two stitches from this marker. So if u have a granny square of 46 stitches, you will count till you reach the center i.e. till u have 23 stitches on the “left” and “right” of that side. Now skip 2 st to your left starting from the mid, and skip 2 st to your right starting from the mid.it should look like this.
Moving on,start by making 2 dc chain 2 and 2 dc in the corner of the square .this will form a corner.
dc in each st across till you reach the marker .Skip the 5 st and dc in the sixth st
ROUND 2 :Chain 3 ,1dc chain 2,2dc in the corner of the previous round
continue doing dc across till you reach the skipped st from the previous round. Now from here onwards we will skip 4 st i.e. 2 st from the mid right and 2 st from the mid left
Logic? skip st in the center and it dips.2dc chain 2 and 2dc in the corner will give it a rise.
this is how your bag will look after a few rounds
draw the shape of the bag on a piece of cloth and cut it
cut pockets as well
now sew the lining together with right sides facing down
Pin the lining as shown
For the handles you can go here
So that's it !!! I hope I have made it very easy to understand
