CROCHET SQUARE WITH FLOWER:
See diagram A.1, i.e. work as follows:
With Paris ch 4 on hook size 4 mm / G/6 and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
ROUND 1: Work * 1 sc in ch-ring, ch 3 *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times and finish with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 3 ch-spaces.
ROUND 2: Work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sl st, 5 dc and 1 sl st = 3 leaves. Turn piece - work next round on the back of the flower.
ROUND 3: ch 1, work 1 sc around first sc from 1st round, ch 4, work 1 sc at the bottom in the middle of first leaf from 2nd round, * ch 4, work 1 sc around next sc from 1st round, ch 4, work 1 sc at the bottom in the middle of next leaf from 2nd round *, repeat from *-* until a total of 5 ch-spaces have been worked, finish with 4 ch and 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 6 ch-spaces. Turn piece - work next round on the front of the flower.
ROUND 4: Work as follows in every ch-space: 1 sl st, 6 dc and 1 sl st = 6 leaves. Turn piece - work next round on the back of the flower.
ROUND 5: ch 1, 1 sc in the middle of bottom on 1st leaf, * ch 5, 1 sc in the middle of bottom on next leaf *, repeat from *-* a total of 5 times and finish with ch 5 and 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 6 ch-spaces. Turn piece - work next round and every round onwards on the front of the flower.
ROUND 6: ch 1, 1 sl st in first ch-space, ch 3 (= 1 dc), 7 dc in same ch-space, then work 8 dc in every ch-space, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 48 dc.
ROUND 7: ch 1, then work 1 sc in every dc from previous round, finish round with 1 sl st in first sc from beg of round = 48 sc.
ROUND 8: ch 4 (= 1 hdc + 2 ch), skip 1 dc, * 1 hdc in next dc, ch 2, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in 2nd ch from beg of round = 24 hdc with 2 ch between each.
ROUND 9: 1 sl st in first ch-space, * ch 5, 1 sl st in 5th ch from hook, 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-space, ** ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-space **, repeat from **-** 3 times in total, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total but finish last repetition with 1 sl st in sl st at beg of round (instead of 1 sc in next ch-space).
ROUND 10: 1 sl st in 5-ch-space, ch 3 (= 1 dc), in same ch-space work 4 dc + ch 3 + 5 dc (= 1 corner), * 1 sc in next ch-space, ch 2, skip 1 ch-space, in next 3-ch-space work 3 dc + ch 1 + 3 dc, ch 2, ** skip 1 ch-space, 1 sc in next ch-space, in 5-ch-space work 5 dc + ch 3 + 5 dc *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total but finish last repetition after **, then work 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
ROUND 11: Work sl sts until ch-space in the middle of first dc-group in the corner. Ch 4 (= 1 sc + 3 ch), 1 sc in same ch-space, * ch 6, 1 dc in next sc, ch 5, 1 sc in ch in the middle of next dc-group, 5 ch **, 1 dc in next sc, ch 6, in ch-space in the middle of dc-group in the corner work 1 sc + ch 3 + 1 sc *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total but finish last repetition after **, then work 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round.
ROUND 12: 1 sl st in ch-space in the corner, ch 3 (= 1 dc), 2 dc + ch 3 + 3 dc in same ch-space, * 6 dc in next ch-space, 4 dc in next ch-space, 4 dc in next ch-space, 6 dc in next ch-space **, in ch-space in the corner work 3 dc + ch 3 + 3 dc *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total but finish last repetition after **, then work 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

ROUND 14: ch 3 (= 1 dc), 1 dc in each of the next 2 sc, ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 sc (= corner), * skip 2 sc, (1 dc in each of the next 3 sc, skip 1 sc) **, repeat from (-) 6 times in total, 1 dc in each of the next 3 sc, ch 3, 1 dc in each of the next 3 sc (= corner) *, repeat from *-* 4 times in total but finish last repetition after **, then work 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

Now work back and forth only over one side of square as follows (= at the top of bag):
ROW 1: Work sl sts until the middle of ch-space in the corner, turn piece, ch 3 (= 1 dc), 2 dc in same ch-space, then work 3 dc between every dc-group from previous row and finish with 3 dc in ch-space in the corner, turn piece = 10 dc-groups.
ROW 2: ch 4 (= 1 dc + 1 ch), then work 3 dc between every dc-group until 9 dc-groups have been worked, finish row with ch 1 and 1 dc in last dc on row. Fasten off.

Work another square with flower. Place the 2 squares tog, WS against WS, and work tog along three of the sides as follows (i.e. do not work along the one side with 2 extra rows and work through both squares at the same time): 1 sl st in outermost st, ch 1, skip 1 st, 1 sc in next st, * ch 1, 1 sc before next dc-group, ch 1, 1 sc in the middle dc in dc-group *, repeat from *-* along the 3 sides on bag (where square was made longer = opening at the top of bag).
Then work a finishing edge around the opening on bag with 1 sc in every st the entire round.

PLAITED SHOULDER STRAP:
Cut 18 strands Paris of 2 m/2.2 yds each and hold the strands tog. Make a loose knot approx. 30 cm / 12'' in from the end. Divide the long strands in 3 equal parts with 6 strands in each part and plait a classic plait until approx. 30 cm / 12'' strands remain, make a loose knot at the end. Plait another plait the same way (2 plaits = approx. 1 ball Paris). Undo the knots in each end, hold the 2 plaits tog. Take a new strand and wrap it tightly around these 2 plaits (approx. 30 cm / 12'' in from the end), fasten the strand tightly (the 2 plaits have now been locked).
Take a new strand and wrap it tightly around plaits the same way in the other end, fasten the strand tightly.
Sew the 2 plaits on the bag in each side of bag, fasten tightly.
Cut the yarn ends to desired length.
