Hey everybody. Smiley I crocheted this bag as well, only with some modifications due to... er, my lack of yarn. I've never done granny squares before, but it turned out to be a great TV-watching project. XD Because I used cotton twine, the squares turned out big so I did only 2 rounds per square. Wink And I used wooden handles instead of crocheting them.

(More info on the Flickr page)

It's currently unlined, although I'm pretty sure I'll have to line it, considering the size of the holes. I thought of using some denim from a cut-up pair of jeans, but that might just add more weight to this already heavyish bag... =X

That's pretty nifty! I really like the wooden handles. I'll consider different handle options for my own now. Cheesy

Very nice bag Aneesah! I especially like the wooden handles.

I will be working on mine (for my 7 year old DD) today again since I have a day off again!  Grin  I'm just doing this one in acrylic (browns and aqua colours) but plan on making one for myself out of cotton once I find the colours I want for taking back and forth to work with me everyday!

how many balls of cream and sugar do you think that this would take?

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!

That would be great if you could retype it. If there is a way to rewrite the pattern to make it more clear for a novice that would be even better. For example after chaining 5 and joining, do I crochet Round 1 into each stitch or into the ring? Then Round 2: ch 3, 2dc - is this 2 dc in one stitch? Thanks.

I saw this bag on Ravelry and fell in love immediately. I am so on board for this CAL. I am halfway thru making the squares. Being that this is my first attempt at making grannies and my first attempt at constructing a purse, I am very excited to see where this goes.  Just what do u think will be the best way to  stitch the squares together??? To make em lay nice and flat? Any suggestions?  Cant wait to see everyones progress!!!

i just whip stitched mine together.

I made a heap of plastic bag granny squares, and used Inga's pattern to sew them together.  It's a really nice pattern, I was amazed it came out so nicely.  I crocheted the squares together with 1 dc in 1 square, 2 chain and 1 dc into the square on the opposite side.  The bag is huge, maybe 50 centimetres long, but it's perfect for going to the market.

I really should clean the house before I take photos, but it cuts into valuable crochet time!
