This pattern is great!  Very simple and easy to follow.  

I had the same trouble some of you seem to be having at first as I was putting in a turning chain, out of habit.  I stopped doing that and crocheted into the very first chain and that seems to have fixed the issue.

The top part is a bit off.. still figuring that part out, but I will fix it by doing a line or two of single crochets all around.  

I only have half done - but thank you for the pattern!
I took a pic of it and placed it on my blog: http://corinnecancraft.com/wordpress/?p=73


Ps.  the fabric in that black one is FABULOUS!

So I saw this and immediately thought of a swap i'm doing on another site that this would be perfect for and started right away...it took me maybe an hour total.  It's an amazingly quick project and i adapted it a little...[read-I misread the pattern and decided to run with it instead of frogging since i was already almost finished with the first half circle.]I also added fabric straps and did two single chains in the center circles fir closures.  it's in yellow yarn, unbleached muslin and black fabric for the strap and lining.  i left the lining open and only secured it to the straps to allow for a larger pocket and a smaller one, so keys, lipgloss and pens for the lining and your cellphone and day planner in the outer pocket.  I like it.  my lining came out a little wonky but it's so much fun- very similar to a hobo bag. I'll load pictures when i have them on my computer.

 unfortunately craftster and i are not in agreement about me putting the pictures in here so I'll just put a link to my blog which does have some other projects i've done, the bag is at the bottom of the post...i'm very happy with the baggie.

I really like the design of this bag and I want to make it! so far, i've crocheted & took it apart for like 5 times already because the shape just goes wonky Sad it grows .... and grows ..... into 2/3 of a circle rather than half .... i dunno what i'm doing wrong. some of the bags with pics i saw are done really nicely .... the brim of the bag is really straight and leveled at the top. how do you achieve that? is it because of my skills? can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong? i would be really grateful!  Grin

I had to do this pattern like 5 times before I got it to look like your pic lol. Maybe adding how many stitches should be in the rows would help some people who are having problems with it.  I love it though- can't wait to line it and give it away as Christmas present!!!
