The bag is crocheted from the bottom up. Begin with a rectangle and crochet a few rounds of dc around it to form the sides before changing to a spiraling lace pattern. Work some dc rows at the top and add the handles. Two methods (crocheted I-cord or sc) are given for making the handles.
You’ll need 250 yards of worsted weight yarn and a size H crochet hook. Use any strong, smooth textured yarn for this project. The pictured bag was made with Filatura Di Crosa Porto Cervo in color 503.
