Bagabond, a bag to crochet
That bag is crocheted from the bottom up in one piece. No seams! The bottom is constructed in joined rounds and the sides in a continuous spiral with the handles worked in as you go.
The pictured bag was made with 400 yards of worsted weight cotton yarn--the kind you use for dishcloths-and a size H (5 mm) crochet hook.
My finished bag measures 29" around, 11" high, 12" across the bottom, and has 8" long handles. It is shown holding the 18 skeins of yarn pictured below. I cut a cardboard circle and put in the bottom of the bag to keep it from drooping.
It's very easy to make the bag smaller or larger.
I held a contest on the Holiday Mystery Group to name this pattern. Embroiderybee came up with the winning name of Bagabond. Love it!
