Crochet Andes Sunrise Bag

Andes Sunrise Bag

SIZE: One-size

Measurements: Circumference: approx. 67 cm = 26 3/8” Height: approx. 34 cm = 13 3/8”


  • DROPS PARIS from Garnstudio (belongs to yarn group C)
  • 150 g color 59, old pink
  • 100 g color 17, off white
  • 100 g color 41, mustard
  • 50 g color 60, mauve

CROCHET GAUGE: 18 double crochets in width and 10.5 rows vertically = 10 x 10 cm.


If you have too many stitches on 10 cm = 4” switch to a larger hook. If you have too few stitches on 10 cm = 4” switch to a smaller hook.


Starting Out:

  • Using a hook size of 3.5 mm (US E/4) and mustard yarn, make 5 chain stitches and form a ring with a slip stitch into the first chain stitch.

Round 1:

  • Work 12 double crochets into the ring. (Remember to read the Crochet Info!)

Round 2:

  • Double up by working 2 double crochets into each existing double crochet, ending up with 24 double crochets.

For Round 3:

  • Follow the pattern 1 double crochet in the first double crochet, 2 double crochets in the next double crochet, and repeat from throughout the round to achieve a total of 36 double crochets.

Round 4:

  • Continue with 1 double crochet into the first 2 double crochets, followed by 2 double crochets into the next, repeat these steps around to get 48 double crochets. (Keep in mind the crochet gauge!)

Rounds 5-10:

  • Keep increasing in the pattern described, adding one more double crochet between the increases on each round. After completing A.1 vertically, you should have 120 double crochets.

Round 11:

  • Work A.2 around without any increases (12 repetitions of 10 double crochets). Follow the specific instructions for the round marked with an arrow in A.2: Work 1 double crochet into each of the next 3 double crochets, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 double crochet, and repeat around. Continue until A.2 is complete, then fasten off. The bag should measure approximately 34 cm (13 3/8”) from the middle bottom to the top.



  • Cut 18 strands of mauve and 18 strands of old pink yarn, each measuring about 120 cm (47 1/4”). You will have 36 strands in total.

Starting the Plait:

  • Tie a loose knot at one end, leaving about 12 cm (4 3/4″) of yarn loose. Separate the strands into three groups of 12 strands each.


  • Braid the three groups together until the braid is about 68 cm (26 3/4”) long. Then, divide the strands into two parts.

Attaching Straps:

  • Thread each half through the bag 3 double crochets apart, in the round with holes, and tie the halves together in a knot at the front of the bag.

Final Touches:

  • Untie the knot at the beginning of the plait and secure it to the opposite side of the bag, about 22 cm (8 3/4”) from the first knot. Create another braid following the same method and attach it to the opposite side of the bag for balance.
