Pattern instructions

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

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.

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

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.

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.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

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.

Dorte 12.04.2018 - 11:04:

Hej, Når jeg følger mønsteret med 12 rapporter i A.1 bliver arbejdet bulet, som om der er for mange masker i runden. Jeg har justeret til 10 rapporter, hvilket hjælper lidt på det; den er dog stadig bulet, og jeg får naturligvis en mindre taske ud af det. Hvad gør jeg forkert?

DROPS Design 18.04.2018 kl. 13:36:

Hei Dorte. Om du hekler med 2 tråder DROPS Paris og du overholder heklefastheten skal ikke arbeidet bøye seg, så prøv å lage en hekleprøve så du får 13 st på 10 cm. Prøv evt med en tynnere eller tykkere nål. God fornøyelse.

Santangeli Emanuela 21.02.2018 - 14:24:

Buonasera, vorrei chiedere gentilmente se c'è un motivo particolare per cui la borsa va lavorata con due capi di filato o se si può utilizzare solo uno. Grazie Emanuela

DROPS Design 21.02.2018 kl. 15:44:

Buongiorno Emanuela. Lavorare con 2 capi consente di dare un sostegno maggiore e necessaio alla borsa. Buon lavoro!

Suzanne Guevin 09.04.2017 - 15:55:

Bonjour J'aimerais savoir s'il y a une raison particulière qui veut que le sac soit crocheter en double crochet au lieu de single crochet? Merci de partager de si beaux patrons avec nous

DROPS Design 10.04.2017 kl. 23:30:

Chere Suzanne! C'est le modele comme ca. Il est tres joli, et grace a ce point, le motif jacquard est mieux visible. Bon tricot!

Romig 28.03.2017 - 03:17:

I the 2nd part of your pattern the centers are not lined up. The center space between the bottom triangles should be lined up with the center STAR symbol to make the pattern agree with the entire sequence. Even the bag in the picture is not done correctly because the pattern printed is staggered. When I corrected this and lined it all up, everything became totally in alignment.

Matilda 02.03.2017 - 13:24:

I A.1 visar mönstret på 10 varv men i beskrivningen finns där ett elfte varv också innan man börjar med A.2 (varv 12). Ska det bara virkad runt med det vita garnet på detta varv?

DROPS Design 02.03.2017 kl. 15:44:

Hej Matilda. Der er 11 varv i A.1

Nathalie 30.01.2017 - 14:47:

Bonjour j'ai commencé a faire ce sac mais j'ai été obligé de m'arrêter et de recommander de la laine parce qu'il m'en manquer c'est le gris clair qu'il me manque et pourtant j'ai commandé ce qu'il fallait

DROPS Design 31.01.2017 kl. 09:44:

Bonjour Nathalie, pensez à toujours bien conserver la même tension que pour votre échantillon. Bon crochet!
