Here's a bag that I finished in June but I just now got around to writing up the pattern.  It's made from 3 skeins of Fantasty Naturale (100% cotton).  Enjoy! 

Chunky Button Bag


The Chunky Button Bag was completely inspired by the yarn I used. When worked in single crochet, Fantasy Naturale creates a very dense and sturdy fabric, perfect for a bag!


Finished Size: 12 inches wide, 10 inches long

Materials: Plymouth Yarns Fantasy Naturale (100 % cotton, 100g, 140 yards) 3 skeins

Hook: US G (4.5mm) or size needed to obtain gauge

Notions: Yarn needle, 4 large buttons (the ones I used came from Joann and are about 1 inches wide)

Gauge: 14 single crochet = 4 inches

Special Stiches: Mesh Stich (Chain 2, skip 2 stitches, double crochet into the next stitch) repeat across row. When you get to the end of the row, end with a double crochet.

Instructions

The Body of this bag is worked in single crochet in one long piece, from top to bottom, and is then seamed along the sides. The handles are worked separately and attatched later. The chunky buttons are the perfect finishing touch.

Chain 50.

Work in sc (single crochet) until the piece measures 2 inches (8 rows).

Chain 5, work one row of mesh stitch.

Work in sc until the piece measures 19 inches.

Chain 5, work 1 row of mesh stitch.

Work 2 more inches of single crochet (8 rows).

Finish off and weave in ends.

Seam up the long ends of the bag using mattress stitch or whip stitch. Weave in ends.

Make Handles (2): Chain 9; work in sc until the piece measures 14 inches; sew the handles onto the front of the bag; weave in ends.

Sew chunky buttons to the front of the bag.

Youre done!
