Crochet flower: Large flower: crochet round 1 to 5.

Small flower: crochet round 1 to 3 only. See under “Flowers” below for yarn quality and crochet hook size.

Crochet 4 ch and form a ring with a sl st. Round 1: 1 ch, 6 dc in ring.
Round 2: * 1 dc in dc, 3 ch*, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 6 ch-loops.
Round 3: 1 ch, and crochet as follows in each ch-loop: 1 dc,1 ch, 3 tr, 1 ch, 1 dc. Finish small flower here.
Round 4: Turn piece, * 1 dc in dc from Round 1, 5 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 6 times and finish with 1 sl st in first dc from beg of round = 6 ch-loops.
Round 5: 1 ch, and crochet as follows in each ch-loop: 1 dc,1 ch, 5 tr, 1 ch, 1 dc. Finish large flower here.

Leaf: Crochet 12 ch.
Round 1: Crochet as follows along one side of ch string: 1 sl st in second ch from hook, 1 sl st in next ch, 1 htr in the next 2 ch, 1 tr in the next 3 ch, 1 htr in the next 2 ch and 1 sl st in the last 2 ch. Work 1 ch and crochet a similar row along the other side of ch string.
Round 2: Crochet 1 sl st in each st round the whole leaf – crochet in the back loops of sts – beg round with 2 ch and also work 2 ch in transition between the 2 sides of leaf. Finish with 4 ch for stalk and cut the thread.

Bag: Loosely crochet 49 ch with crochet hook size 4 mm with 1 thread of each quality (= 3 threads). Work 1 dc in second ch from hook and now 1 dc in each of the remaining 47 ch = 48 dc. Finish row with 1 ch to turn with. Continue back and forth with 1 dc in each dc and 1 ch to turn with until piece measures 38 cm. NOTE! Work dc in front and back loops alternately on every other row. Now dec 2 dc each side on every row as follows: work row until 1 dc left, turn piece, skip 1 dc, work 1 dc in next dc and work return row until 1 dc left, turn piece, skip 1 dc, 1 dc in next dc*. Repeat from *-* until there are 24 dc left on row (= 12 dc dec each side), cut the thread.
Shoulder strap: Crochet 7 ch with crochet hook size 3 mm and 2 threads Cotton Viscose + 1 thread Glitter. Work 1 dc in second ch from hook and 1 dc in each of the remaining 5 ch = 6 dc. Finish row with 1 ch to turn with. Work 1 dc in each dc and finish each row with 1 ch until strap measures approx 85 cm. Cut the thread.

Flowers (see explanation above): Crochet 3 large flowers and 3 leafs with 1 thread Muskat on crochet hook size 3 mm. Crochet 5 small flowers with 1 thread Cotton Viscose +1 thread Glitter on crochet hook size 2.5 mm.

Assembly: Fold the bag as follows: 15 cm front, 3 cm bottom, 15 cm back, the rest is the flap. Sew shoulder strap to each side of bag – sew with 1 thread Muskat and sew with small sts in the outermost loops to avoid a chunky seam. Sew leafs to back of large flowers and sew all flowers to flap – see picture.
Crochet with 1 thread Cotton Viscose on crochet hook size 2.5 mm between the flowers as follows: Beg by 1 flower, put hook through the outer edge and through flap, pick up yarn and crochet 1 dc, then crochet ch to next flower or leaf and do the same. Crochet between the flowers randomly, look at the picture and use your imagination!

Hengsel moet wel doorlopen,anders krijg je nooit geen bodem.

Lenie 02.06.2016 - 20:19:

Met wat voor steek zet je de zijkanten vast?

DROPS Design 06.06.2016 kl. 14:32:

Hoi Lenie. Er staat matrassteek in het patroon. Kijk hier hoe je dat doet:

Anneke 25.08.2015 - 08:37:

Ik wil graag de tas maken maar mij is het in elkaar zetten niet duidelijk.Zie ik het op de foto nu goed dat het hengsel doorloopt tot op de bodem? Dus gedeeltelijk de zijkant vormt...?

DROPS Design 25.08.2015 kl. 16:17:

Hoi Anneke. Nee, het hengsel wordt op de binnenkant bevestigt. Lees onder "Afwerken": Naai het hengsel vast met 1 draad Muskat en kleine matrasst aan de weerskanten op de binnenkant van de tas – zorg ervoor dat de naad niet te dik wordt

Loes 22.04.2015 - 22:12:

Wat een schattig tasje! Maar ook ik begrijp niet goed hoe ik de zijkanten aan elkaar moet maken zodat een bodem van 3cm ontstaat. Heel graag uw advies. Alvast dank

DROPS Design 23.04.2015 kl. 13:59:

Hoi Loes. Je vouwt de tas dubbel ongeveer bij 16,5 cm (15 cm voorkant/achterkant - in het midden van de 3 cm bodem). Haak de tas samen.

Tanya Crawley 12.01.2015 - 08:17:

When it says to sc alternately between front and back loops every other row, does that mean: 1 row front loops, 1 row back loops, etc., or: 1 row regular sc, 1 row going front loop, back loop, etc. across the row?

DROPS Design 12.01.2015 kl. 11:01:

Dear Mrs Crawley you will work alternately 1 row sc in front loop of sts, 1 row sc in back loop and repeat these 2 rows. Happy crocheting!

Angela Schulze 10.12.2013 - 09:51:

Hallo, ich verstehe nicht ganz wie ich die Tasche zusammen nähen muss, um den Boden zu erhalten. Wenn ich die Seiten zusammen nähe, entsteht ja ein Beutel. Das sieht dann anders aus, als auf dem Bild. Liebe Grüße Angela

DROPS Design 11.12.2013 kl. 07:12:

Liebe Angela, an den Seiten ist noch die Verlängerung der Träger und gibt die 3 cm Tiefe.

DROPS Design 15.02.2011 - 20:23:

Hi Yolanda, you should do exactly as explained in pattern, turn the work when 1 sc remains on row, and then on next row skip the 1st sc and then continue that row, this way you will have dec 2 sc in that side of work, repeat in the other side.

Yolanda Hernandez 14.02.2011 - 02:18:

I don't understand this part.now dec 2 sc each side on every row as follows; work row until 1 sc,left, turn piece. skip 1 sc,work 1 sc in next sc and work return row until 1 sc left, turn piece,skip 1 sc,1 sc in next sc* confuse with this part is flap to the purse

Mrikski 07.04.2009 - 22:56:

I made it al lot smaller and without the handle: so now it's my sunglasses-protection-bag. In red with pink flowers: it looks great. Bring on the sun!

Evelyne Black Petersen 30.12.2008 - 18:15:

Jeg er i gang med opskriften 17 i nr. 105, en sød lille taske men mangler oplysninger om hvordan kanten til klappen bliver pæn. Jeg gætter på, at der skal hækles langs kanten men hvordan? Jeg er ikke særlig erfaren. Nogen der kan hjælpe mig? mvh Evelyne
