Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show colours in pattern. 1 square = 1 tr.

Use yarn from both inside and outside of the ball. When switching to a new ball, try to avoid switching both strands at the same time - to avoid a thick yarn when fastening.

COLOUR PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing colour work as follows: Work last tr with first colour but wait with last pull through, switch to next colour and work last pull through, then work next tr. When working with two colour place strands for the colour not worked over sts from previous round, work around the strands so that they are hidden and follows in the round.

Replace first tr at beg of every round with 3 ch, finish round with 1 sl st in third ch.

Dec 1 tr by working 2 tr tog as follows:
Work 1 tr but wait with last pull through, (= 2 loops on hook), work next tr but on last pull through, pull yarn through all 3 loops on hook.

BAG: Work in the round with 2 strands of each colour - READ DOUBLE YARN TIP.

Work 5 ch with 2 threads shocking pink on hook size 4.5 mm and form a ring with one sl st in first ch. Then work in the round and according to A.1 (work 12 repetitions of A.1 in width) - READ COLOUR PATTERN.
ROUND 1: Work 12 tr in ring – read CROCHET INFO.
ROUND 2: Work 2 tr in every tr = 24 tr.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 tr in first tr, 2 tr in the next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 tr.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 tr in each of the first 2 tr, 2 tr in next tr *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 tr. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUND 5-10: Continue with inc and pattern as before, i.e. on every round work 1 more tr between inc = 120 tr.
ROUND 11: Work last round in A.1, AT THE SAME TIME dec 4 tr evenly, dec by working 2 and 2 tr tog = 116 tr.
ROUND 12: Continue working in the round, but without inc and work according to A.2 (= 7 repetitions in width), AT THE SAME TIME on 1st round in A.2 dec 4 tr evenly = 112 tr. Continue until A.2 has been worked, fasten off.

Cut 6 lengths of each colour of 120 cm = 36 strands. Place the strands tog and tie a loose knot, leave approx. 12 cm after knot. Distribute strands in 3 piles with 12 strands in each pile. Plait the three piles tog until plait measures approx. 68 cm. Divide the end of the plait into 2. Thread the 2 halves through bag, 1 tr apart, in third round from edge. Tie them tog in a knot on the front of bag. Untie the knot in the beg of the plait and fasten it to bag the same way but in the opposite side. Make another plait the same way - see photo.

Bedankt voor de reactie! Ik ben ondertussen al een aardig eind op weg en het gaat prima.

Annelies 28.07.2019 - 16:18:

Ik wil deze tas graag gaan maken van drops paris zoals staat aangegeven in het patroon. Het moet met een dubbele draad gemaakt worden met haaknaald 4.5 maar bij de omschrijving van het garen staat haaknaald 5 aanbevolen (bij gebruik van een enkele draad) klopt dit garen dan wel bij het patroon?

DROPS Design 11.08.2019 kl. 16:33:

Dag Annelies,

Dat klopt, maar deze tas wordt bewust met een kleinere haaknaald gemaakt, zodat het mooi strak wordt, wat geschikter is voor tassen.

Started this bag according to pattern.goes well

Nichole 22.05.2019 - 14:50:

I’m having trouble with the instructions for Round 11. Specifically the decrease of 4dc? Can you clarify the steps for this round? I’m new to tapestry crochet thank you!

DROPS Design 22.05.2019 kl. 15:13:

Dear Nichole, on the last round in A.1 (= 11th round) you work with only one colour working 2 dc together a total of 4 thimes evenly on the round (read how to decrease evenly here). Happy crocheting!

Kuki 06.04.2019 - 14:27:

It`s beautiful, thanks to share

Nico 05.01.2019 - 06:31:

It's not clear where to attach the handles. Equidistant around the bag, that is, 7 of the top pattern repeats apart?

DROPS Design 07.01.2019 kl. 09:36:

Dear Nico, you can take inspiration from the picture to place the handles. Happy crocheting!

Mariëtte 10.07.2018 - 17:41:

Ik zou de tas graag voor een meisje van 11 willen maken en dus iets kleiner. Ipv 12 patroonherhalingen wil ik er 9 doen, maar daardoor gaat de bodem ban de tas ‘kromtrekken’. Hoe voorkom ik dit? Moet ik al in het begin meer stokjes haken of al eerder meerderen of is er en ander altrnatief? Alvast vriendelijk bedankt.

DROPS Design 11.07.2018 kl. 11:28:

Dag Mariëtte, De tas is ontworpen voor 12 herhalingen en hoe minder herhalingen je maakt, hoe krommer de tas trekt. Is het een idee om gewoon een dunner garen en naald te geberuiken, bijvoorbeeld Safran?

Sue 27.06.2018 - 02:15:

Do you have a tutorial on this bag... I’m new at crocheting ... I don’t understand when to change colors...already bought the yarn and I’m ready to go...would be so helpful ...

DROPS Design 27.06.2018 kl. 08:25:

Dear Sue, colour changes are shown in diagram - 1 square = 1 dc x 1 round. This video shows how to crochet 2 colours on the same round. Remember to follow written pattern at the same time to increase for the bottom of the bag. Happy crocheting!

Aurelia 28.05.2018 - 05:35:

Que otro tipo de estambre o lana sustituta podría usar en este patrón para no usar 2 hilos.?

DROPS Design 29.05.2018 kl. 11:33:

Hola Aurelia. Este patrón se puede trabajar con lanas del grupo E ( 1 hilo), pero en este momento en este grupo no hay ningún hilo de algodón. Tendría que ser lana 100%, como, por ejemplo, Eskimo.
