PATTERN:
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. Diagrams show colors in pattern. 1 square = 1 dc.

DOUBLE YARN TIP:
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.

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

CROCHET INFO:
Replace first dc at beg of every round with ch 3, finish round with 1 sl st in third ch.

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

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

Work 5 ch with 2 threads shocking pink on hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 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 COLOR PATTERN.
ROUND 1: Work 12 dc in ring – read CROCHET INFO.
ROUND 2: Work 2 dc in every dc = 24 dc.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 dc in first dc, 2 dc in the next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 dc.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 5-10: Continue with inc and pattern as before, i.e. on every round work 1 more dc between inc = 120 dc.
ROUND 11: Work last round in A.1, AT THE SAME TIME dec 4 dc evenly, dec by working 2 and 2 dc tog = 116 dc.
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 dc evenly = 112 dc. Continue until A.2 has been worked, fasten off.

STRAPS:
Cut 6 lengths of each color of 120 cm / 47'' = 36 strands. Place the strands tog and tie a loose knot, leave approx. 12 cm / 4¾'' after knot. Distribute strands in 3 piles with 12 strands in each pile. Plait the three piles tog until plait measures approx. 68 cm / 26 3/4''. Divide the end of the plait into 2. Thread the 2 halves through bag, 1 dc 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.
