The bag is worked in the round from bottom up.

BAG:
Crochet 3 ch on hook size 3 mm with Muskat Soft and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
ROUND 1: 1 ch, 4 dc in ch-ring, 1 ch.
ROUND 2: 2 dc in every dc from previous round = 8 dc - insert a marker at beg of round and move marker upwards.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 12 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 16 dc.
ROUND 5: * 1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 20 dc.
ROUND 6: * 1 dc in each of the first 4 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 dc.

Continue to inc 4 dc every round so that there is 1 dc more between every inc for every round. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
When piece measures 19 cm from middle, continue next round as follows: 1 dc in 1st dc, * 4 ch, skip 2 dc and work 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from*-* the entire round, finish with 4 ch that are dragged across up to next round and then fasten them with 1 dc in first ch-loop from previous round.
Work next round as follows: * 4 ch, 1 dc in next ch-loop *, repeat from*-* the entire round, finish with 4 ch that are dragged across up to next round and then fasten them with 1 dc in first ch-loop from previous round. Continue to work in the round with this pattern for 18 cm. The piece measures approx. 37 cm.
Work next round as follows: 3 dc in every ch-loop. Work 3 rounds with 1 dc in every dc.

Now work a double shoulder strap as follows: Work dc over the first 18 dc. Turn piece and work dc back and forth over the first 9 of the 18 dc. Continue to work back and forth like this until strap measures approx. 110 cm. Cut the thread.
Work the same way over the last 9 dc of the 18 dc.
Sew each of the shoulder straps to opposite side of bag.
