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.
Increase 1 stitch on each side of the marker thread as follows:
Start 2 single crochets before the marker thread, work 2 single crochet in the next single crochet, work 2 single crochets, the marker thread sits between these single crochets and work 2 single crochets in the next single crochet.

See diagrams A.1 and A.2. The diagrams show the colors in the pattern. 1 square = 1 single crochet.

COLOR PATTERNS (worked in the round):
When changing colors, work as follows: Begin on the last single 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 single crochet. When working with two colors, lay the strand of the color not being used over the stitches from the previous round and work around the strand so that it is hidden and always available when needed.

The first single crochet of the round is replaced by 1 chain stitch, finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch.

The piece is worked in the round with single crochets. First work the bottom with increases. Then work A.1 and A.2 upwards without increases. At the top, work a row of holes for the cords.

Work 35 chain stitches with hook size 3 mm / C and light beige.
Work single crochets down along the one side of the chain stitch row as follows: skip the first chain stitch, work 2 single crochet in the next chain stitch, then work 1 single crochet in each of the next 32 chain stitches, in the last chain stitch work 2 single crochets, insert 1 marker thread = middle of the side. Turn and continue working from the other side of the chain stitch row. Work 2 single crochets in the first chain stitch, then work 1 single crochet in each of the next 32 chain stitches and finish with 2 single crochets in the first chain stitch which was worked in at the beginning of the round and 1 slip stitch in the first single crochet on the round. Insert 1 marker thread = middle of the side. There are now 72 single crochets on the round.
READ CROCHET INFO! Work 1 single crochet in each single crochet from the previous round, at the same time increase 4 single crochets on each round – READ INCREASE TIP. Work 5 rounds in this way = 92 single crochets.

Continue to work in the round with single crochets, but without increases and work according to A.1 (= 23 repeats in width). READ COLOR PATTERNS! On the last round in A.1 decrease 2 single crochets evenly along the round = 90 single crochets. Continue working with A.2 (= 3 repeats in width). On the round with the arrow, work a row of holes as follows: Work 1 single crochet in each of the first 2 single crochets, * work 2 chain stitches, skip the next 2 single crochets, 1 single crochet in each of the next 2 single crochets*, repeat from *-* the whole round. On the next round work 1 single crochet in each single crochet and 2 single crochets around each chain-space. Finish working A.2. Cut and fasten the strands.

Work 3 cords, 1 with white, 1 with light beige and 1 with yellow as follows: Work 1 row with chain stitches until the cord measures 130 cm / 51½''. Tie the cords to the bag with a knot on the inside in each side of the bag, in the round with holes.


All measurements in charts are in cm.

Hola, el primer punto bajo de cada vuelta se sustituye por uno de cadeneta, este punto cuenta para el diagrama?. gracias.

Hola Eva. Mira la INFORMACIÓN PARA LA REALIZACIÓN DEL TRABAJO, al inicio de la vuelta el 1er punto bajo se sustituye por 1 punto de cadeneta y es el primer punto del diagrama.

Buenas. No consigo saber cómo colocar los cordones. Tengo hechos los ojales y los cordones, pero no consigo colocarlos en el bolso y no he encontrado ningún video explicativo. me podríais ayudar? Por cierto queda muy chulo el dibujo!! Gracias

DROPS Design 29.08.2017 kl. 18:14:

Hola Cristina. Los 3 cordones (= 1 de cada color) se insertan de fuera hacia dentro en la fila de los ojales en un lado lateral, después, se hace un nudo en el extremo interior de los cordones (Atención: el nudo queda dentro de la bolsa). Repetir en el otro lado.

Bonjour, je suis entrain de commencer ce magnifique model et je pense qu'il y a une petite erreur dans le première ligne. il est inscrit : "crocheter 2 mailles en l'air dans la maille en l'air suivante" et je pense que c'est "crocheter 2 mailles serrées dans le maille en l'air suivante" bref rien de grave puisque l'on comprend facilement que ce sont des mailles serrées. merci pour tous ces merveilleux models

DROPS Design 31.07.2017 kl. 11:02:

Bonjour Mme Perinelli, merci pour votre retour, la correction a été faite. Bon crochet!

Rebekka 07.07.2017 - 12:11:

Entschuldigung, irgendwie hab ich das in der Anleitung überlesen/nicht gefunden. 😄

Rebekka K. 07.07.2017 - 08:58:

Hallo, Wie mache ich die Lochrunde am Ende? Immer eine Luftmasche an der Lochstelle oder gibt es da noch andere Möglichkeiten? Besten Dank

DROPS Design 07.07.2017 kl. 09:38:

Liebe Rebekka, bei der vorletzten Runde häkelt man eine Lochreihe wie beschrieben: : je 1 feste Masche in die 2 ersten festen Maschen, * 2 Luftmaschen, die 2 nächsten festen Maschen überspringen, je 1 feste Masche in die nächsten 2 festen Maschen*, von *-* bis Rundenende wiederholen. Dann 1 Runde mit feste Maschen häkeln (1 feste Masche in jede feste Masche und 2 feste Maschen um jeden 2-Luftmaschenbogen häkeln). Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Good morning! Is it possible to send me in diagram the increase tip for the bottom of the bag? Only round 2 and then I will figure it out as it is impossible to understand it in words. Thank you in advance

DROPS Design 22.05.2017 kl. 09:49:

Dear Anna, the video below shows how to work on each side of the chain band, then inc for the bac as explained in the pattern. Happy crocheting!

Marie-noelle Eyssartier 26.04.2017 - 17:29:

Donc du tour 2 au tour 6 il faut faire la même chose pour obtenir 92 ms dans l'attente de vous remercie de votre aide et de votre compréhension

DROPS Design 27.04.2017 kl. 08:52:

Bonjour Mme Eyssartier, tout à fait, vous allez augmenter 4 ms par tour en faisant 2 ms dans la m avant le marqueur et 2 ms dans la m après le marqueur (de chaque côté), et obtenir ainsi 92 ms à la fin du tour 6. Bon crochet!

Marie-noelle Eyssartier 26.04.2017 - 08:22:

Bonjour il n'y a pas de vidéo qui montre comment crochet des mailles serrées en ovale je n'arrive pas a faire le fond du sac il y a une erreur dans le tour 1 il faut crocheter en l'air dans la maille en l'air suivante

DROPS Design 26.04.2017 kl. 09:55:

Bonjour Mme Eyssartier, la vidéo ci-dessous montre comment crocheter des 2 côtés de la chaînette pour faire le fond du sac. Le tour 1 est juste ainsi: sur 35 ml: on saute la 1ère ml, 1 ms dans la 1ère ml, 32 ms, 2 ms dans la dernière ms (= 36 ms sur 34 ml), puis au retour: 2 ms dans la 1ère ml, 32 ms, 2 ms dans la dernière = 36 ms sur 34 ml = 72 ms. Bon crochet!

Mafalda Silva 26.02.2017 - 12:38:

Alguma dificuldade com o desenho. Não tem um desenho mais completo? Este não bate certo

DROPS Design 03.03.2017 kl. 12:16:

Não, este é o desenho usado em todas as línguas. Pode sempre tentar fazer o seu próprio desenho numa folha de papel quadriculado. Bom croché!
