I was really inspired by the pattern over on the Sugar n Cream (ok, so the SugarNCream website is being a poo for me right now so I can't give the link for the bag I'm talking about) website but being that I lost the free pattern leaflet I got from my LYS and I don't have a printer to print the pattern out and didn't feel like sitting at my computer to read the pattern, I decided to come up with my own pattern.


Kindof a pattern.  If you have ANY questions, please ask!

Ok, so I used 2.5 balls of Lion Brand Cotton Ease #194 Lime (LOVE IT!) and 0.75 ball of Sugar N Cream Cotton in Ecru (the new larger size that they have, I think it's now 3.75 oz.?) Size H Crochet Hook.

To start out, ch 6, sl st to first ch.  Ch3, 12 dc into the ring.
next round: ch3, 2 dc in each stitch (24 sts)
keep increasing until you are dc in the next 9 sts and 2 dc in the next st.  Work 2 rounds even, then work *8 dc, dc2tog* around, work one row even, then work *7dc, dc2tog*around and work then work the next 3-4 rows even.

Mesh stitch (this part is worked in a spiral because I didn't want a seam on this part, plus it made it easier to work the mesh stitch)
(join with the SNC Ecru)  *ch5, sk 3sts, sc in next st* (when you get back to the beginning you will then sc in the next stitch) next round *ch5, sc in the previous ch5 sp* around.  Keep working this for about 20-25 rows (depending on how deep you want your bag).  After you finished that then switch back to the lime, ch3 and work 4 dc per ch5 sp (because the width of a dc is a little wider than a ch st you would actually be increasing, just a bit, if you put 5dc per ch5 space)  Work a few (4-5) rows of dc (ch3 at the beginning and sl st to the top of the ch3 sp when you get back around)

Once you've completed your last row, ch3 and work the next 12 stitches (I did dc for my handles but you can use any stitch you want at this point).  Work back and forth over these 12 stitches until your handle is the length you want it.  Once you've gotten your handle to the length you want it, sl st to the other side.  I then worked one more round of sc around the whole top of the purse, when I got to the other side of my handle I did bcsc (back post single crochet) around those 12 sts and continued working the other side of the bag.  Once you get back to your handle finish off, weave in ends.

Like I said, if you have ANY questions, please ask!  I am going based off of the top of my head for what I did for this pattern because I didn't write it down.  Enjoy and thanks for looking!  Smiley

Thank you WIP and claudiaginger13.  I LOVED the color as soon as I seen it.  I still have about 1/2 a skein left so I'm trying to think of some sort of project to do with it to use it up.
