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 to A.6. Diagrams show colors in pattern. 1 square = 1 single crochet.

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 single crochet with first color but wait with last pull through, switch to next color and work last pull through, then work next single crochet. When working with two colors place strands for the color not worked over stitches from previous round, work around the strands so that they are hidden and follow in the round.

Replace first single crochet on round with 1 chain stitch, finish round with 1 slip stitch in 1st chain stitch

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

Chain 4 on hook size 6 mm / J/10 with 2 strands off white and form a ring with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch. Then work PATTERN - see explanation above, in the round according to A.1 (6 repetitions in width) - READ COLOR PATTERN.
ROUND 1: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 6 single crochet in ring.
ROUND 2: Work 2 single crochet in every single crochet = 12 single crochet.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 single crochet in first/next single crochet, 2 single crochet in next single crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 single crochet. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUND 4: Work * 1 single crochet in each of the first/next 2 single crochet, 2 single crochet in next single crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 single crochet.
ROUND 5: Work * 1 single crochet in each of the first/next 3 single crochet, 2 single crochet in next single crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 single crochet.
ROUND 6: Work * 1 single crochet in each of the first/next 4 single crochet, 2 single crochet in next single crochet *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 single crochet.
ROUNDS 7-14: Continue with increases and pattern as before, i.e. on every round work 1 more single crochet between increases until 13 rounds have been worked (= 6 single crochet increased every round) = 78 single crochet. Then work last round but on this round increase only 4 single crochet = 82 single crochet.

Continue to work in the round but without increases and work according to A.2 (= 2 repetitions in width). Continue until A.2 has been worked. Then work A.3 (= 28 repetitions in width) - AT THE SAME TIME on first round increase 2 single crochet evenly = 84 single crochet. When A.3 is done vertically, fasten off.

Cut 27 strands off white and 27 strands dark gray of 150 cm / 59'' each. Divide them into 3 piles of 18 strands each as follows: 1 pile off white, 1 pile dark gray and 1 pile with a mix of both colors. Place the 3 piles together and tie a loose knot, leave approx. 15 cm / 6'' after knot. Plait the three piles tog until plait measures approx. 75 cm / 29½''. Divide strands into 2 piles. Thread the 2 halves through bag, 2 single crochet apart (use hook to pull strands through). Tie them together into a knot on the front of bag and tie a strand of yarn around them. Loosen the knot at other end of the plait, then fasten the ends to the bag the same way but in the opposite side. Make another plait the same way - see photo.

Bellissimo modello, però bastano 150 di grigio e 100 di senape :)

Dans vos explications vous parlez d'un point fantaisie mais je ne vois l'explication nulle part.

Bonjour Lorraine, il s'agit ici simplement du jacquard. Bon crochet!

I bought a similar looking bag from a Zapotec man in Oaxaca this year for a friend, and I wished I had gotten one for myself. Well now I can make one!
