Agreed!! I never noticed it because I tend to run on autopilot.  Grin

I'll be happy to retype the pattern and continue the "schema" to 5 or 7 rounds, if anyone would like it.  Please let me know!



The arrow in the picture indicated where my rounds end.

Does anyone know how big these squares measure out to be?  How much bigger is the 7 round square as opposed to the 5 round square? Huh

I'd like to get an idea of the scale of this bag before I decide to make it! Smiley

I understand completely, but there are a few variables at play here. Your gauge and yarn choice are going to be the biggest factors. Get your gauge with your choice of hook and yarn, and factor it out from there.

This bag is ALL about the construction. You can make it as big or small as you like, based on your choices. Look at the picture of the finished bag...  now make a square and measure it diagonally... that measurement x 2 will be your estimated length and width of the finished bag (allow a little extra for the joining).

My 5-round squares, using a US G hook and Sugar and Cream cotton at 4 sts/in, measure 7" corner to corner. I can estimate that my bag will be about 14" wide and long.

Hope this helps!

Alright! I finally got some yarn that I want to use for this project. I was going to use acrylic but if it turns out the way I want, I want it to last!

I'm just going to use Peaches & Creme because that's what I could find.

I have three skeins of their Fiesta Ombre and one each of red and orange to coordinate. Like most things I end up crocheting, I'll probably just use the pattern as "inspiration" and just make it up as I go along lol

I'm even pondering doing this kind of bag with hexagon granny squares, but I haven't decided yet.

I agree, i think that maybe i might in a coupla months be making another one, i'm afraid that the acrylic yarn that i used won't stand up the way that i would like it to...... we'll see. On a better note though the last two days have been the bag's first experience in the real world and i still love it! I was questioning as to whether it was as cute as i thought it was, but my friend insisted that i carry her purse today and she carry mine b/c she liked it so much.

i did not follow the pattern (b/c i didn't know there was one) for this part.  first i sewed/crocheted the 5 motifs together for the front forming the x pattern and then the same for the back.  then i took the last three that belong on the sides and the bottom and sewed all the way around them. maybe that will be simpler for you. i'm i making sense?
