Do not join here. Place marker for beginning of round and continue in un-joined, spiral rounds. (42 sts)

The body is worked from the base in joined, turned rounds.

Round 6 (RS): (short round) Sc around to last st, turn leaving last st unworked. This marks the new beginning of the round, which has been moved slightly to the true side.

Round 7 (WS): Ch 1, sc around, sl st to join, pull sl st tight, turn.

Repeat round 7 until the body measures 10”/25.5cm from the base, ending with a WS round.

Fasten off.


Straps are worked in turned rows.

Large Side Strap:

With RS facing and a larger hook, count 21 sts to the right of the beginning of the last round and rejoin the yarn.

Small Side Strap:

With RS facing, larger hook, and strap just worked to the right, skip 5 unworked sts along the top of the body of the bag and rejoin yarn in the next (6th) st. Then, create the small side strap following a similar process to the larger strap.

Join Straps:

Change to a smaller hook and ch 26, then sc into the st at the top of the right strap.


Edging is worked in un-joined, spiral rounds.

  • With RS facing, sc evenly down the left side of the large strap, across the top of the body to the small strap, up the right side, and across the chain, then place a marker for the beginning of the round.
  • Sc 1 more round, then sl st 1 and fasten off.
  • With RS facing, rejoin the yarn at the other side of the strap foundation ch and work 2 rounds of sc around the other side similarly.
  • Secure and weave in all ends.

Remember, this pattern is designed for personal, non-commercial use only.
