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.

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 colors place strands for the color not worked over sts from previous round, work around the strands so that they is 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.

BAG: Worked in the round.

Work 5 ch with dark gray on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and form a ring with 1 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 next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 dc.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 dc in each of the first 2 dc, 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 dc. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUNDS 5-10: Continue with inc and pattern as before, i.e. on every round work 1 more dc between inc = 120 dc.

ROUND 11: Continue to work in the round but without inc and work according to A.2 (= 4 repetitions in width). On round with arrow work as follows: * 1 dc in each of the first/next 3 dc, ch 1, skip 1 dc *, repeat from *-*. Continue until A.2 has been worked, fasten off.

Cut 18 lengths of each color of 120 cm / 47 1/4'' = 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 strands into 2 piles. Thread the 2 halves through bag, 3 dc apart, in round with holes. Tie the tog into a knot on the front of bag. Take the knot at beg of plait and fasten the end to bag the same way but in the opposite side. Make another plait the same way - see photo.

Hej, hur många grå "trekanter" A1 ska det vara i botten och hur många A2 ska det vara runt väskan. Hoppas ni förstår hur jag menar. Jag får 11 A1 hur jag än gör.

Hej, du ska ha 12 rapporter med A.1 nederst och det blir sedan 4 rapporter med A.2 på bredden.

(Nederlands) Hallo, Ik heb 4 bolletjes van elke kleur gekocht. Omdat ik zoveel lijk over te houden twijfel ik of ik dit patroon met dubbele draad had moeten haken. Dan wordt de tas ook vast steviger. Ik vind hier echter niets over terug in de beschrijving. Graag uw reactie, Groet, Leyla

Hallo ich finde die Tasche einfach klasse und möchte sie gerne häkeln. Gibt es ein Diagramm für den Taschenboden? Ohne wir es ziemlich schwer diese Anleitung nach zu häkeln.

DROPS Design 06.08.2018 kl. 09:34:

Liebe Michaela, das Muster vom Boden finden Sie in A.1, gleichzeitig wie in der schriftlichen Anleitung häkeln. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Pils Manuela 04.08.2018 - 09:07:

Hallo! Ich komme mit der Zunahme und dem Farbwechsel in Reihe 8 nicht zurecht. Durch die Zunahme verschiebt sich das Muster. Vielleicht könntet ihr ein Foto vom Boden der Tasche hochladen, damit ich mich besser orientieren kann wo genau zugenommen wird. Danke!

DROPS Design 06.08.2018 kl. 08:50:

Liebe Manuela, bei der 8. Reihe sollen Sie 1 M beige, 3 M grau, 4 M beige haben, und wie zuvor in der letzten Masche im Diagram zunehmen, dh: 1 M mit beige, 3 M mit grau, 2 M mit beige und in die nächste M 2 Stb mit beige (= Zunahme) häkeln . Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Carine POTELLE 04.07.2018 - 09:22:

Je suis en train de terminer ce charmant petit sac, mais l\'avant-dernier rang me pose problème: est-ce que je comprends bien: il faut bien commencer par 3 brides dans chacune des 3 premières brides du rang précédent puis une maille en l\'air, sauter une bride puis refaire une bride dans chacune des 3 brides suivantes, une maille en l\'air, sauter une bride et ainsi de suite?\r\nMerci de votre aide.

DROPS Design 04.07.2018 kl. 10:04:

Bonjour Mme Potelle, tout à fait, c'est bien ainsi que l'on fait ce tour, on aura ainsi un rang ajouré (= 1 ml au-dessus de la bride sautée toutes les 3 brides) où on pourra y glisser les anses du sac de chaque côté. Bon crochet!

Me gustaria hacer el bolso santa fe en algodon pero cual me aconseja para tejer con aguja del 3 o 3.5

DROPS Design 13.05.2018 kl. 12:41:

Hola Carmen, para trabajar con esos números de agujas deberías trabajar con algodones del grupo B como Muskat, para darle cuerpo al bolso. Si quieres trabajar con algodones del grupo A tendrías que usar ganchillo de 2.5/ 3.00.

Elisenda Bachs Marés 08.05.2018 - 13:04:

Hola! Podríais buscarme una alternativa para trabajar el bolso Santa Fe con un algodón en lugar de lana? Me gustaría llevarlo en verano. Gracias!

DROPS Design 13.05.2018 kl. 12:39:

Hola Elisenda, este bolso está hecho con Nepal, que pertenece al grupo C. En este mismo grupo tienes 2 algodones: Paris y Bomull-Lin. También puedes trabajar a doble hilo con algodones del grupo A.

Valerie 03.05.2018 - 19:05:

Bonjour, Au rang 8 (motif A1) je dois faire: 6B, puis 2B dans la même... jusque là ça va ... mais en suivant ça, je n'ai pas le bon dessin, c'est à dire que je devrais avoir 3B en gris et 4B en beige.... c'est ça?

DROPS Design 04.05.2018 kl. 08:35:

Bonjour Valérie, au rang 8 vous devez avoir: 1 bride en beige clair, 3 brides en gris foncé et 4 brides en beige clair (= 8 brides au total), les augmentations se font à la fin du diagramme, vous allez donc crocheter: 1 b en beige clair, 3 b en gris foncé, 2 brides en beige clair et dans la dernière b du motif 2 brides en beige clair. Bon crochet!

This pattern would be 100 times easier if there were more than two photos to look at or if in the description it would say something like double crochet 4 in tan chain 2 in grey and so on. It's coming along for me but my goodness I am struggling after round 10 with matching up the colors to the design.

Cathleen Wilbourn 26.03.2018 - 08:36:

The pattern calls for 2 strands, do I still use 2 if I'm using worsted weight

DROPS Design 26.03.2018 kl. 13:12:

Dear Mrs Willbourn, this bag is worked with 1 strand of yarn Nepal and a tension of 18 dc x 10.5 rows = 4"x4". Happy crocheting!
