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. The diagrams show the colours in the pattern. 1 square = 1 treble 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.

COLOUR PATTERN (worked in the round): 
When changing colours work as follows: Work the last treble crochet with the first colour, but wait with the last pull through, change to the next colour and work the last pull through, then work the next treble crochet. When working with two colours lay the strands of the colour 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 treble 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 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 COLOUR PATTERN!
ROUND 1: Work 12 treble crochet around the ring – READ CROCHET INFO!
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochet in each treble crochet = 24 treble crochet.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 treble crochet in the first treble crochet, 2 treble crochet in the next treble crochet *, repeat *-* the whole round = 36 treble crochet.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 treble crochet in each of the 2 first treble crochet, 2 treble crochet in the next treble crochet *, repeat *-* the whole round = 48 treble crochet. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUNDS 5-12: Continue with increases and work pattern according to A.1 as before, i.e. for each consecutive round work 1 more treble crochet between increases = 144 treble crochet. Increase 12 treble 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 of each of the colours 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 treble crochet in the 3rd to last round of the bag as follows: Start after the 21st treble crochet on the round: Thread the strap from the inside of the bag outwards, skip 30 treble crochet and thread the strap from the outside inwards. Skip 12 treble crochet and thread the strap from the inside outwards, skip 18 treble crochet and thread the strap from the outside inwards. Skip 12 treble crochet and thread the strap from the inside outwards, skip 30 treble crochet and thread the strap from the outside inwards. Skip 12 treble crochet and thread the strap from the inside outwards, skip 18 treble 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.

Hej! När jag klickar på länken för garnet till detta mönster, DROPS Safran, skickas jag till Garnaffären men DROPS PUNA, inte Safran?? Sökte efter Safran direkt på Garnaffärens sida och det finns där så det verkar bara ha kopplats fel länk till detta mönster.

Hallo, ich verzweifle leider völlig an eurer Anleitung :( Das Farbmuster nach Diagramm A.1 irritiert mich, da es nicht mit den Fotografien zusammen passt :/ Z.B. die zweite Runde: lt. Diagramm 1 Stb weiß, 1 Stb jeansblau, 4 Stb weiß. Aber auf der Fotografie sind weiß und jeansblau im Wechsel.Eigentlich habe ich bisher all eure Anleitungen super verstanden - aber bei den Taschen bin ich raus. Kann mir jemand helfen? Danke!!

DROPS Design 08.04.2019 kl. 13:56:

Liebe Saska, Diagram lesen Sie von unten nach oben, dh bei der 1. Reihe in A.1 häkeln Sie 12 x A.1 = 12 x 1 Stb mit jeansblau - bei der 2. Reihe in A.1 häkeln Sie (1 Stb mit Jeansblau, 2 Stb mit hell blaulila) x 12. und so weiter. Hier lesen Sie mehr über Diagram. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

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.

DROPS Design 29.06.2018 kl. 08:16:

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!

Robin Joss 17.04.2018 - 14:35:

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!

ELIE 10.04.2017 - 11:06:

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
