CROCHET TIP-1:
Replace first tr on round with 3 ch and finish each round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
CROCHET TIP-2:
Replace first tr on row with 3 ch.
TR-GROUP:
* Work 1 tr, but wait with the last pull through *, repeat from *-* a total of 3 times = 4 sts on hook, yarn over needle and pull thread through all 4 sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------
BAG:
Work 4 ch with 2 threads Bomull-Lin and crochet hook size 6 mm and form a ring with a sl st in the first ch.
ROUND 1:10 tr in ring – SEE CROCHET TIP-1!
ROUND 2: 2 tr in each tr = 20 tr.
ROUND 3: 2 tr in each tr = 40 tr.
ROUND 4: * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* a total of 20 times = 60 tr.
ROUND 5:* 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 2 tr *, repeat from *-* a total of 20 times = 80 tr.
ROUND 6: * 2 tr in first tr, 1 tr in each of the next 7 tr *, repeat from *-* a total of 10 times = 90 tr.
Piece now measures approx 11 cm from the centre. Continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr (no inc) until piece measures approx 30 cm from the centre.
REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
Work next round as follows: 3 ch (= 1 tr), * 2 ch, skip 2 tr, 1 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* and finish with 2 ch, skip 2 tr and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round. Work next round as follows: 3 ch (= 1 tr), 1 ch, * 1 TR-GROUP – see above – round ch-loop, 2 ch *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 TR-GROUP round ch-loop,1 ch and 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
Repeat these 2 rounds 1 more time, and then work the first round (= 5 rounds in total).
Work next round as follows: 1 tr in each tr, 2 tr round each ch-loop. Continue in the round with 1 tr in each tr until piece measures approx 44 cm. Cut the thread and fasten.

SHOULDER STRAPS:
Work 7 ch with 2 threads Bomull-Lin and crochet hook size 6 mm. Work 1 tr in 4th ch from hook and continue with 1 tr in each of the next 3 ch = 5 tr. Continue back and forth with 1 tr in each tr – SEE CROCHET TIP-2 - until strap measures approx 60 cm. Make one more strap and attach a strap each side at the top of bag.
