Work STRIPES – see explanation above – as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 10 tr in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first tr.
ROUND 2: Work 2 tr in every tr = 20 tr.
ROUND 3: Work 1 tr and 2 tr alternately in every tr the entire round = 30 tr.
ROUND 4: Work 1 tr in every tr but work 2 tr in every 3rd tr = 40 tr.
ROUND 5: Work 1 tr in every tr but work 2 tr in every 4th tr = 50 tr.
Continue working 1 tr more between inc every round until there are 120 tr on round.
Then work 1 round with tr while at the same time inc 8 tr evenly = 128 tr. Continue with stripes while at the same time working PATTERN - see explanation above! When piece measures approx. 32 cm (measured from the middle of circle and upwards), finish after 1 round with tr, cut the thread.

CROCHET SQUARE:
There are 4 different colour combinations on the squares.
SQUARE 1: Colour 1 = raspberry, colour 2 = strong yellow.
SQUARE 2: Colour 1 = orange, colour 2 = raspberry.
SQUARE 3: Colour 1 = medium pink, colour 2 = orange.
SQUARE 4: Colour 1 = strong yellow, colour 2 = medium pink.

Crochet 4 ch with colour 1 and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
ROUND 1: 1 ch, 8 dc in ch-ring, finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
ROUND 2 (switch to colour 2): Work 5 ch (= 1 dc + 4 ch), * 1 dc in next dc, 4 ch *, repeat from *-* a total of 7 times and finish with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 8 dc with 4 ch between each.
ROUND 3: 1 ch, continue to crochet as follows in every ch-loop: 1 dc, 1 htr, 2 tr, 1 htr and 1 dc, finish round with 1 sl st in ch from beg of round = 8 leaves. Cut the thread.
ROUND 4 (switch to off white): Work 1 dc at the top of first leaf, * 8 ch, 1 dc at the top of next leaf, 3 ch, 1 dc at the top of next leaf *, repeat from *-* the entire round but finish with 1 sl st in dc from beg of round.

Work 2 squares in every colour combination.
Sew them tog edge to edge with 1 stitch in every st in the following order: Square 1, square 2, square 3, square 4, square 1, square 2, square 3 and square 4 - then sew square 4 against square 1 to make a circle.

SHOULDER STRAP:
Crochet 5 ch on hook size 3.5 mm with raspberry and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch. Then work 1 dc in every st in the round until piece measures approx. 75 cm. Cut and fasten the thread. Crochet another shoulder strap the same way.

ASSEMBLY:
Fasten the circle of crochet squares at the top of bag – sew edge to edge with 1 stitch in every st – sew with WS on squares outwards (they are to be folded down over the bag afterwards). Work 1 round with raspberry and tr at the top around the squares – there should be 1 tr in every tr and 1 tr in every ch = 16 tr per square = 128 tr in total. Switch to off white and work 1 round with 1 tr in every tr. Cut and fasten the threads.
Fold the crochet squares over the bag.
Fasten one shoulder strap on each side of the bag as follows (also see picture): Thread the end of strap in from WS and out through upper corner to the left of one of the squares, make a knot at the end of strap to keep it in place. Skip one square and thread the other end of strap in from WS and out through upper corner to the right of the next square, make a knot.
Fasten the other strap the same way in the other side of bag.

You make it hard to order yarn I ordered a set of yarn for the Sicily bag 139-13 You sent me the wrong colors I would like to try again With the set of colors on the photo Red orange white pink raspberry yellow But you make it too hard to order

Bij de gehaakte vierkantjes; welke kleur bedoelen jullie bij vierkantje D met abrikoos? Bij materiaal staat die kleur niet bij.... wel naturel, koraal, oranje, geel en roze.

DROPS Design 23.03.2016 kl. 14:42:

Hoi Dorien. Dat is een foutje en moet roze zijn. Het patroon is aangepast. Bedankt voor het melden.

Annet 19.02.2014 - 22:43:

De tas is bijna af.Ik moet alleen de schouderband nog. Ik snap de uitleg alleen niet :-( In de rondte gehaakt???

DROPS Design 20.02.2014 kl. 09:56:

Hoi Annet. De schouderband is een buisje. Dus je haakt inderdaad in de rondte: Haak 5 l met koraal en vorm een ring met 1 hv in de 1e l. Haak 1 v in iedere st in de rondte tot het werk ongeveer 75 cm meet.

Hvor mange garnnøgler af hver farve skal man bruge, sådan ca?

Det er en fejl at der ikke står det. Det bliver lagt ud med det samme :)

Mycket fin sommarväska, som kan varieras i oändlighet.

Sono contenta che il mio suggerimento per il nome sia stato scelto :) in questo modello è racchiusa (secondo me) la bellezza dei colori della Sicilia, ma anche il profumo :)
