I figure, acrylic should work, too. think you should just make sure your yarn isn't toooo stretchy. ~ otherwise your bag might turn out to be really stretchy.  which doesn't necessarily have to be a bad thing ...  Wink

I'm not a hug fan of granny squares but you know you did somethin good when you inspire someone like me to make one of these.

Very nice! And the color choices are so lovely

What the heck is a Nr .3 hook size?  I have no problem winging it but I was just curious.  I've seen metric, US and UK sizes....but this???

I have some Anchor Magicline at home so I checked the ball band.  The recommended size for crochet is 4.00mm.  I'd say Nr. 3 is 3.00mm (probably meant to be a tighter piece of fabric to stop the bag from stretching out too much).

Hope that helps. Smiley

Hi! Here's a conversion chart I found online:
http://www.geocities.com/nornsneedlework/crochet/hookchart.htm

I think a 3mm hook (approx a US D hook) might be a bit small. My D is missing in action somewhere at the moment, but my E/4 is 3.5mm and I would consider IT a too small for a cotton yarn.

I may go with a US F or G, depending on this yarn, which I have never seen.

JUST LOCATED THIS, from Herrschner's web site:

Anchor Magicline #4 Yarn
Fresher, more contemporary look for fashion crochet; also great in knitted designs for novel approach.
Soft 100% cotton Aran weight equivalent medium weight yarn.
1.75 oz/50 grams/77 yard/70m ball.
Machine wash. Imported.
Crochet gauge, size G-6 (4.25mm) hook/Knit gauge in stockinette stitch, size 7 (4.5mm) needles: 18 sts = 4" (10cm).

Item #: CC711261

Our Price:
   

$4.95
   

Hope this helps!!
