DC ROUNDS (applies to bag):
Beg every round with 1 ch and 1 dc in 1st dc, and finish with 1 sl st in 1st dc.
1 tr-group = 2 tr, 2 ch, 2 tr in same ch-loop. Beg every tr-group round with sl st until 1st ch-loop, 3 ch, 1 tr, 2 ch, 2 tr in same ch-loop, then 1 tr-group in every ch-loop, finish with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.
DC IN A CIRCLE (applies to handle):
After last dc on 1st round, work 1 dc in next dc, then work in the round with 1 dc in every dc.

Worked in the round with 1 thread Lin linen and 1 thread Cotton Viscose light beige on hook size 5 mm as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 2 ch, 8 dc in 1st ch, finish with 1 sl st in 1st dc = 8 dc - Read DC ROUNDS above.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 16 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 dc in next dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 24 dc (8 new sts).
ROUND 4: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 32 dc.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 40 dc.
ROUND 6: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 48 dc.
ROUND 7: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 56 dc.
ROUND 8: Work 1 dc in every dc = 56 dc.
Repeat 7TH and 8TH ROUND to inc 8 new sts every other round (i.e. work 1 dc in each of the next 6, 7, 8 etc. dc, then 2 dc in next dc) until there are 96 dc on round, work 1 round with 1 dc in every dc (= 18TH ROUND).
ROUND 19: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 7 dc, then 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* = 108 dc (12 new sts).
ROUND 20: Work 1 dc in every dc = 108 dc.
Repeat 19TH and 20TH ROUND to inc 12 new sts every other round (i.e. work 1 dc in each of the next 8 and 9 dc, then 2 dc in next dc) until there are 132 dc on round.
Then work 1 dc in every dc until piece measures 9 cm from the last inc (piece measures approx. 22 cm from 1ST ROUND).
Then work as follows: Work as follows in 1st dc: 3 ch, 1 tr, 2 ch, 2 tr, * skip 3 dc, 1 tr-group in next dc * - Read TR-GROUPS above, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish by skipping 3 dc and work 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round = 33 tr-groups. Work the round with tr-groups for approx. 23 cm (piece measures approx. 45 cm from 1ST ROUND).
Work next round as follows: 1 ch, 3 dc in every ch-loop the entire round, finish with 4 dc in last ch-loop on round = 100 dc. Work 1 dc in every dc for 6 rounds. Work next round as follows: 10 dc, * 2 ch, skip 2 dc, 26 dc, 2 ch, skip 2 dc *, 20 dc, repeat from *-* 1 more time, finish with 10 dc = 4 openings for handle. Continue with 1 dc in every dc (1 dc in every ch over the openings) for 6 more rounds, cut and fasten the threads (piece measures approx. 6 cm from 1st round with dc after last round with tr-groups).

Worked in the round. Crochet 5 ch with 2 threads Lin brown on hook size 5 mm and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Work 1 dc in every ch = 5 dc. Then work DC IN A CIRCLE - Read explanation above - for approx. 80 cm (or desired length), cut and fasten the threads. Work another handle the same way.

Pull the ends on the handle through the openings on the bag from WS, make a knot. Repeat in the other side.

Boven genoemd garen is er niet meer, met welk garen kan ik deze tas haken? Bij voorbaat dank.

DROPS Design 30.05.2018 kl. 13:37:

Dag Monique, Een katoengaren uit categorie A is een goed alternatief, bijvoorbeeld DROPS Safran of DROPS ♥ You #9 of #7.

Irene Bolovis 19.06.2017 - 13:21:

I have restarted this bag twice now. I am up to row 22 and so far I have a large disk. When will the bag start looking like a cylinder. Shouldn't I do a row in the back loops only so it will start shaping upward instead of flat. I'm very confused.

DROPS Design 19.06.2017 kl. 16:52:

Dear Mrs Bolovis, you are increasing until there are 132 sts in the round, then continue without increasing until piece measures 22 cm from 1st round (not in diameter). Sts are not worked into back loop, just as usual. Happy crocheting!

PK Ang 22.04.2016 - 02:31:

Is the bag begins from the bottom? Is the DC ROUNDS applies to every round of the bag and "sl" is needed for end of every round? Thks

DROPS Design 22.04.2016 kl. 08:58:

Dear PK Ang, correct, the bag is worked from bottom up, starting with the bottom. The bottom consists of a round of dc, start each round with 1 ch (des not replace 1st dc) and finish with round with 1 sl st in 1st dc at the beg of round. Happy crocheting!

Anne Louise Spencer 31.12.2015 - 02:58:

Is Drops Bomull Lin colour light beige (03) or colour beige (11) a better blend with DROPS COTTON VISCOSE colour light beige (17) for this pattern? Thankyou.

DROPS Design 02.01.2016 kl. 15:56:

Dear Mrs Spencer, please contact your DROPS Store for any help choosing your colours. They will answer even per mail or telephone. Happy crocheting!

Kuba Margit 27.07.2015 - 15:15:

Liebes Drops-Team, hilfe!!! Bin gerade bei der 4. Reihe des Muschelmusters, und muss leider feststellen, dass die Wolle bei Weitem nicht reichen wird. Mach ich da irgendwas falsch? Sollte ich vielleicht fester häkeln, da es mir ab diesem Muster auch sehr weit und locker vorkommt?

DROPS Design 28.07.2015 kl. 13:12:

Liebe Margit, haben Sie die Maschenprobe genau eingehalten? Das ist ganz wichtig, damit die Menge des Garns reicht. Wenn Sie den Eindruck haben, dass das Muschelmuster sehr locker ausfällt, versuchen Sie, es fester zu häkeln oder eine dünnere Nadelstärke zu verwenden. Es sollte auch zum unteren Teil der Tasche passen und sich nicht stark wellen oder zusammenziehen.

Buon giorno, io vorrei realizzare la borsa Drops Carry All modello n°LN-O25 ma non riesco a trovare nei vs. prodotti il filato DROPS LIN, mi potreste comunicare con quale prodotto è possibile sostituirlo per poter effettuare l'ordine? Grazie.

DROPS Design 31.01.2015 kl. 14:38:

Buongiorno Claudio, purtroppo il filato Lin è fuori produzione, ma quiqui può vedere la pagina con le sue caratteristiche e trovare un filato sostitutivo, ad esempio in cotone, visto che la borsa è estiva. Si ricordi di controllare il metraggio corretto prima di effettuare l'ordine: nella pagina indicata troverà un link che le indica come fare. Buon lavoro!!

Karrie 13.04.2014 - 19:02:

The TR-Groups make no sense at all. Can you do a tutorial video?

DROPS Design 14.04.2014 kl. 09:35:

Dear Karrie, here below is a video for that st-pattern worked there back and forth. Happy crocheting!

Erika 16.02.2014 - 11:21:

Hello, I have finished the bag but am not able to do the handle.I would appreciate if you can put a video showing how to do it.Thank you beforehand.

DROPS Design 17.02.2014 kl. 10:37:

Dear Erika, your request has been registered. To work the handle, you will crochet dc (uk-english) in the round : 1 dc in each dc around until finished measurements, do not join at the end of each round with 1 sl st, just continue working 1 dc in next st around. Happy crocheting!

Sarah 30.04.2013 - 10:35:

Drops Lin wird ja leider nicht mehr produziert. Welches Garn wird als Alternative empfohlen?

DROPS Design 01.05.2013 kl. 06:26:

Liebe Sarah, Garne mit der gleichen Maschenprobe sehen Sie unter „Garnalternativen“ (in dem Menu im grauen Querbalken). Wir empfehlen für dieses Modell ein Baumwollmaterial wie Muskat oder Cotton light.

Sabine Rölli 24.08.2012 - 19:46:
