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. The diagrams show the colors in the pattern. 1 square = 1 double crochet.

Use the strand from the inside and outside of the ball. So that it is not thick where the strand ends are fastened, it is best not to change both strands at the same time. It is also advisable to fasten the strands by laying them along the stitches from the previous round and then working around them and fastening them as you go.

COLOR PATTERN (worked in the round):
When changing colors work as follows: Work the last double crochet with the first color, but wait with the last pull through, change to the next color and work the last pull through, then work the next double crochet. When working with two colors lay the strands of the color not being worked across the stitches from the previous round and work around the strands so that they are hidden and always available for use.

The first double crochet of the round is replaced by 3 chain stitches, finish the round with1 slip stitch in the third chain stitch.

The piece is worked in the round with 2 strands.

Work 5 chain stitches with 2 strands of denim blue and hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 and form them to a ring with one slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue to work in the round according to diagram A.1 (work 12 repeats of A.1 in width) – READ COLOR PATTERN!
ROUND 1: Work 12 double crochet around the ring – READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 2: Work 2 double crochet in each double crochet = 24 double crochet.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 double crochet in the first double crochet, 2 double crochet in the next double crochet *, repeat *-* the whole round = 36 double crochet.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 double crochet in each of the 2 first double crochet, 2 double crochet in the next double crochet *, repeat *-* the whole round = 48 double crochet. REMEMBER THE CROCHET GAUGE!
ROUNDS 5-12: Continue with increases and work pattern according to A.1 as before, i.e. for each consecutive round work 1 more double crochet between increases = 144 double crochet. Increase 12 double crochet each round.
ROUND 13: Continue to work in the round, but without increases and work pattern according to A.2 (= 8 repeats in width). Continue until A.2 is finished, cut and fasten the strands.

Cut 12 strands of 10 metres/11 yds of each of the colors light blue purple and denim blue (= 24 strands). Twist the strands tightly together until they resist, fold the strap double and it will continue to twist. Tie a knot in each end.

Thread the strap into the bag between 2 double crochet in the 3rd to last round of the bag as follows: Start after the 21st double crochet on the round: Thread the strap from the inside of the bag outwards, skip 30 double crochet and thread the strap from the outside inwards. Skip 12 double crochet and thread the strap from the inside outwards, skip 18 double crochet and thread the strap from the outside inwards. Skip 12 double crochet and thread the strap from the inside outwards, skip 30 double crochet and thread the strap from the outside inwards. Skip 12 double crochet and thread the strap from the inside outwards, skip 18 double crochet and thread the strap from the outside inwards. Adjust the length of the strap if necessary and tie the ends of the strap together on the inside of the bag.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Hallo, ich habe eine Frage, kann man dieses Haekelmuster auch mit festen maschen haekeln oder nur mit Staebchen, vielen Dank fuer Ihre Antwort

DROPS Design 27.09.2018 kl. 15:45:

Liebe Frau Reefs, diese Tasche wird nur mit Stäbchen gehäkelt, sollten Sie sie mit festen Maschen häkeln, würde die Tasche viel kleiner (in der Höhe) sein. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Martha Nitschelm 29.06.2018 - 00:03:

Do you have instructions for knitting this bag? Thank you.

Hej! Jeg vil gerne hækle denne taske til min datter. Den skal passe til hendes røde sommerkjoler. Spørgsmålet er, hvilke 2 farver i det røde spektrum jeg skal sætte sammen med hvid. F.eks. rød nr 19 og lysrosa nr 01 eller koralrød nr 13 og fersken nr 12 eller andet? Jeg vil blive glad for et indspark her :-) Venlig hilsen Kirsten

DROPS Design 04.06.2018 kl. 09:42:

Hej Kirsten, spørg din datter, hun vil sikkert gerne være med til at ønske farver :) Eller så kigger du på de røde tasker vi har lavet :) God fornøjelse!

I'm new to crochet and I don't understand a1.looking at the design I can't see where I add two . I'm on row 5 and all the boxes look the same. So how do I know where to add .

DROPS Design 17.04.2018 kl. 16:04:

Dear Mrs Joss, when working A.1 you are increasing at the same time 12 sts on every round as explained in the written pattern. From round 5 continue as before: *1 dc in each of the first 3 dc, 2 dc in next dc* repeat from *-* at the same time follow round 5 in diagram: *2 sts with white, 2 sts with light blue purple, 1 st with white* and repeat from *-*. Happy crocheting!

How much cotton do I need to the bag in Paris or other C yarn? Thank you!!!

DROPS Design 21.04.2017 kl. 08:57:

Dear Laura, you will find here how to calculate new amount of yarn when using 1 yarn group C instead of 2 yarns group A. Happy crocheting!

Bonjour je ne comprends pas comment on incère la cordelière merci de votre aide

DROPS Design 12.04.2017 kl. 11:58:

Bonjour Elie, suivez bien pas à pas les indications: on commence par l'insérer de l'intérieur vers l'extérieur puis de l'extérieur vers l'intérieur (= 1ère bandoulière), puis on répète encore 1 fois pour former la 2ème bandoulière et on noue les extrémité sur l'intérieur du sac. Sautez bien le nombre de mailles indiqué à chaque fois pour qu'elle soit placée comme il faut. Bon crochet!

Eyssartier Marie-noelle 23.02.2017 - 08:46:

Bonjour j'aime beaucoup ce modèle mais c'est dommage qu'il n'y ai pas le diagramme complet en rond du fond du sac

Taschen und Beutel kann man nie genug haben, zumal sie wieder voll im Trend sind.
