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.

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

BAG: Worked in the round.

Work 5 ch with dark grey on hook size 3.5 mm 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 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 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!
ROUNDS 5-10: Continue with inc and pattern as before, i.e. on every round work 1 more tr between inc = 120 tr.

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 tr in each of the first/next 3 tr, 1 ch, skip 1 tr *, repeat from *-*. Continue until A.2 has been worked, fasten off.

Cut 18 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 strands into 2 piles. Thread the 2 halves through bag, 3 tr 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.

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.

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!

Bonneval 06.03.2018 - 12:27:

Bonjour, peut on faire ce modèle en maille serrée, car je n'aime pas le rendu en bride. Merci

DROPS Design 06.03.2018 kl. 14:19:

Bonjour Mme Bonneval, vous pouvez tout à fait vous inspirer de ce modèle pour faire le vôtre, n'oubliez pas toutefois que les mailles serrées étant moins hautes que les brides, le sac sera plus petit (en circonférence et en hauteur), il vous faudra donc l'ajuster en conséquence si besoin. Bon crochet!

Een mooi patroon die heel makkelijk in 1 dag te haken is. Binnenkort haak ik er eentje in een andere kleurencombinatie

Miranda Tinnevelt 13.02.2018 - 20:50:

Zojuist dit patroon uitgeprint. Nu begonnen met het begin. Maar moet ik nu eerst patroon A1 12x herhalen, en dan mwt TOER 1 beginnen? Ik kan dan toch geen 12 stk in de ring maken?

DROPS Design 15.02.2018 kl. 22:00:

Hoi Miranda,. Ja, je haakt 12 stokjes in de de ring op de eerste toer. De eerste toer zijn die 12 stokjes en tegelijkertijd het de eerste rij in het telpatroon. In het telpatroon kun je zien met welke kleur je moet haken.

Wendy 09.02.2018 - 09:26:

Ik ben bij toer 5 tm 10 aangeland en alles klopt tot nu toe. Heb 48 stk erop staan en nu moet ik toer 5 tm 10 doen zoals hiervoor maar als ik dat doe kom ik op meer dan 120 skt uit. Heeeeelp......

DROPS Design 26.02.2018 kl. 12:49:

Hallo Wendy, Je hebt 12 patroonherhalingen van A.1 Op elke herhaling heb je 1 meerdering van A.1, dus op elke toer 12 meerderingen. Op toer 4 heb je 48 steken en daarna moet je nog 6 toeren haken. Dan kom je precies op 120 steken uit. Tel alles nog even goed na en kijk of het aantal meerderingen die je op de toer maakt kloppen.

Helen Burns 06.02.2018 - 00:55:

I've used charts before but I can't figure out how to use it for the color changes. Any tips for understanding when to change colors? Thanks

DROPS Design 06.02.2018 kl. 09:30:

Dear Mrs Burns, change color with last yo on dc - see COLOR PATTERN at the beg of the written pattern and video below - in the diagram 1 square = 1 dc. Happy crocheting!
