The tote measures 36cm x 30cm, with a gauge of 28 stitches and 22 rows in a 10cm square.


  • Cascade Ultra Pima DK, 2 skeins in Gold, 1 skein in Natural.
  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • Tote leather handles
  • Magnetic clasp
  • Thread to match the color of your handles
  • Fabric for lining
  • Stitch marker or yarn in contrasting color


  • Ch = Chain
  • St = Stitch(es)
  • Sl st = Slip stitch
  • dc = UK double crochet


Step 1: Base
  • Ch 79.
  • Round 1: dc in 2nd ch from hook, place marker in st just made, 76dc, 4dc in last ch, turn and start working on another side of chain, 76 dc, 3dc in same ch where you worked marked st. Don’t turn (160 st)
  • From here onwards you will work in spirals, you will move your marker up each row to know which is the first st of each round.
  • Round 2: 2dc in marked st, 76dc, *2dc in next st, repeat from * for next 3 st, 76dc, **2dc in next st, repeat from ** twice (168 st).
  • Round 3: dc in marked st, move marker up, dc in each st across (168 st).
Step 2: Body

For the body of the bag:

  • Rounds 1 to 77: Follow the chart provided for each round. Each square is a dc worked in the back loop only, if you don’t know how to change colors in each round. Remember to bring the marker up at the beginning of each round (marked st is St 1 in the chart for each round), and to work in spirals without joining each round.


  • Sew on the handles before sewing on the lining to hide the stitches, and use strong thread for the handles.
  • Finally, sew in the magnetic clasp.

And there you have it, a beautiful Crochet Moroccan Tote!
