Moss st: 1st row: * K 1, P 1 *. 2nd row: * work K over P and P over K *. Repeat 2nd row upwards.

Ridge (back and forth on needle): 1 ridge of garter st = 2 rows. 1st row K, 2nd row K.

Cast on 39 sts on needle size 3 mm with 1 strand Bomull-Lin and 1 strand Cotton Viscose. Work as follows: 1st row (= WS): K. 2nd row (= RS): K. Continue working moss st but the 2 outermost sts in each side are worked as follows from edge (seen from RS): 1 st garter st and 1 st stocking st. Remember knitting tension! When piece measures 11 cm work moss st across all sts upwards. When piece measures 34 cm cast on 6 new sts in each side = 51 sts.

Assembly: The bag is crochet together with dc and with 1 strand of each quality on hook size 4 mm. Fold the bag double where the 6 new sts were made in each side. These 6 sts are side pieces = approx. 3 cm in width. Work inside 1 edge st. Start by working together the 3 cm at the bottom and continue upwards along the side. Repeat on other side of bag. Shoulder straps: There are 2 shoulder straps on the bag. Crochet with hook size 4 mm and 2 strands Bomull-Lin + 1 strand Cotton Viscose: 2 ch-rows of approx. 100 to 120 cm each.

Continue working moss st across all sts while at the same time inc 1 st in each side with 1 YO inside the outermost st. Inc in each side every 2nd row: 1 st in total 7 times = 25 sts. Continue with moss st across all sts until piece measures 22 cm, work 1 ridge, cast off.

Hi! Thank you for the wonderful work! About this pattern: in the UK version I am looking at, the pattern is for another set of bags (I think 69-25). I 'll get the pattern from another language version ;) but for now I 'm guessing it's the wrong link.

Dear Mrs Judd, you will find under tab "Videos" the videos related to the techniques used in that pattern, ie for popcorn pattern, see video below, alt. 2. Happy crocheting!

Hermosa bolsa, espero poder hacerla y te mando una imagen cuando la termine. Gracias por compartir tus diseños. Saludos desde Monterrey Nuevo León, México. Catalina

De tasjes zijn kleiner dan gedacht

Maria Serena 30.06.2014 - 17:46:

A me non tornavano le mb perchè la prima la lavoravo a partire dalla penultima catenella, comunque la borsetta è finita ed è veramente bella :)

Maria Serena 28.06.2014 - 21:05:

Ho notato un errore nella realizzazione del modello, per poter avere le 40 maglie basse alla fine del primo giro bisogna iniziare il lavoro con 19 catenelle anzichè 18

DROPS Design 30.06.2014 kl. 10:24:

Buongiorno Maria Serena, deve iniziare avviando 18 cat, e poi lavorare 2 m.b nella 1° cat, quindi 1 m.b in ognuna delle successive 16 cat, nell’ultima cat lavorare 4 m.b (= 22 m.b), poi mettere un segnapunti al centro delle 4 m.b e lavorare 1 m.b in ognuna delle 16 cat dall’altro lato e finire con 2 m.b nella 1° cat (= 18 m.b), in totale 40 m.b sulla riga. Buon lavoro!!

Hola, he aprovechado la super sale y me estoy haciendo este bolso precioso.Las vueltas se cierran con un punto enano? y luego como continuo, en redondo seguido, o de ida y vuelta? muchas gracias.

DROPS Design 23.07.2013 kl. 23:14:

Hola Mª Jose. El bolso tiene forma ovalada, se trabaja en redondo con vtas cerradas (finalizamos cada vta con 1 p.e. en el 1er p.b. del inicio de la vta).

Ich konnte in der Anleitung die Angaben für den Taschenboden, wie Maschenanschlag und Ausführung der Häkelreihen, nicht finden.

DROPS Design 22.07.2013 kl. 07:58:

Liebe Silvia, in der Anleitung ist zunächst das Muster beschrieben, dann die konkrete Anleitung für die Tasche.

Kat 19.07.2013 - 03:07:

Thank you for those dimensions - I see now that they were included in the pattern except for the length of the strap. I am almost finished with the purse and I love it. I made it in a cream colored cotton and attached the bag to the strap with silver rings on each side (I made a straight strap rather than tapered as shown in the pattern). Once again, a great Drops crochet design - thank you !!

Kat 17.07.2013 - 01:31:

I am making this bag now. What are the dimensions of the bag supposed to be - how long is it and how high high is it without the strap ? Also how long is the strap ? Every Drops pattern I have made turns out beautifully so I hope this one will too !

DROPS Design 17.07.2013 kl. 09:21:

Dear Kat, the bag in Muskat is approx. 21 cm wide and the one in Vienna approx. 23 cm wide. The Popcorn pattern (part working straight) is 9 cm high, and straps are 20 cm high. Happy crocheting!
