MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid hole in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, work 3 ch (counted as 1st dc), then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every round with dc with 3 ch (counted as 1st dc), work dc in every dc, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

DC-GROUP:
1 dc-group = in same dc work 2 dc, ch 2 and 2 dc.
----------------------------------------------------------

BAG:
Worked in the round. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE - read explanation above - at the bottom of bag with Bomull-Lin on hook size 4 mm / G/6.

ROUND 1: Work 16 dc in the magic circle.
ROUND 2: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 2 dc in every dc = 32 dc.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in next dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 64 dc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 6: * 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 80 dc.
ROUND 7: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 8: * 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 96 dc.
ROUND 9: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 10: * 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 112 dc.
ROUND 11-13: Work 1 dc in every dc.
Then work pattern A.1 - see diagram - as follows:
ROUND 1: ch 5 (replaces 1 dc and 2 ch), skip the first 3 dc, * work 1 DC-GROUP - read explanation above - in next dc, ch 2, skip the next 3 dc, 1 dc in next dc, ch 2, skip 3 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 dc-group, ch 2, skip the last 3 dc and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 14 dc-groups.
ROUND 2: In same ch work 1 dc-group, * ch 2, 1 dc in ch-space on next dc-group, ch 2, 1 dc-group in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with ch 2, 1 dc in ch-space on last dc-group, ch 2 and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 14 dc-groups.
ROUND 3: ch 5, * 1 dc-group in next dc, ch 2, 1 dc in ch-space on next dc-group, ch 2 *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 dc-group in last dc, ch 2 and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 14 dc-groups.
Repeat ROUND 2 and 3 upwards.
Work diagram A.1 for approx. 18 cm / 7'' (piece measures approx. 30 cm / 11 3/4'' vertically).
Then work as follows: In every ch-space (also in ch-space on dc-groups) on round work 2 dc, in every single dc (not in dc on dc-groups) work 2 dc (i.e. 8 dc over every repetition of diagram A.1) = 112 dc in total.
Work 1 round with 1 dc in every dc, do not cut the yarn, now piece measures approx. 33 cm / 13'' vertically. Insert a marker at beg of round and a marker after 56 dc (= middle of the side).

SHOULDER STRAP:
Worked back and forth as follows: Turn piece and work sl sts until 5th dc after 1st marker, turn piece and work 1 dc in each of the next 10 sts (marker is in the middle of these sts), turn.
Work 1 dc in every dc on row until strap measures approx. 80 cm / 31½'' from marker (or until desired length). Fasten off.
Fasten the end directly above the marker on the other side of bag as follows: sew with neat little stitches in front loops on last row.
