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.
INFORMATION FOR THE PATTERN:

PATTERN: 
See diagrams A.1 and A.2. 1 square = 1 treble crochet.

COLOUR PATTERN (for bag): 
When changing colour, work as follows: Work the last treble crochet before the colour change, but wait with the last pull through. Change to the next colour and work the last pull through before continuing in this colour. If the next round starts with a new colour, work the last slip stitch with the new colour at the end of the round. When working with several colours on one round, lay the strands you are not using over the stitches from the previous round, you work around these strands so that they are hidden and brought along.

CROCHET INFO-1:
The first treble crochet on the round is replaced by 3 chain stitches, finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the 3rd chain stitch at the beginning of the round.

CROCHET INFO-2:
Start the round with 1 chain stitch. This does not replace the first double crochet, but is in addition to. The round finishes with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.

DECREASE TIP:
Decrease 1 treble crochet by working 2 treble crochets together as follows: Work 1 treble crochet but wait with the last pull through (= 2 loops on the hook), then work the next treble crochet, but when working the last pull through, pull the strand through all 3 loops on the hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BAG:
The bag is worked in the round, bottom up.
Work 5 chain stitches with Eskimo and blue violet with hook size 4.5 mm. Form them to a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue working in the round according to diagram A.1 (work 11 repeats of A.1 in width) – READ COLOUR PATTERN!
ROUND 1: Work 11 treble crochets around the ring – READ CROCHET INFO-1!
ROUND 2: Work 2 treble crochets in each treble crochet = 22 treble crochets.
ROUND 3: Work * 1 treble crochet in the first treble crochet, 2 treble crochets in the next treble crochet *, repeat *-* to end of round = 33 treble crochets.
ROUND 4: Work * 1 treble crochet in each of the first 2 treble crochets, 2 treble crochets in the next treble crochet*, repeat *-* to end of round = 44 treble crochets. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
ROUNDS 5-11: Continue with increases and pattern as before, i.e. each round you work 1 treble crochet more between increases = 121 treble crochets on the round.
Continue working in the round but without increases according to diagram A.2 (work 15 repeats of A.2 in width), AT THE SAME TIME on the first round, decrease 1 treble crochet READ DECREASE TIP! = 120 treble crochets.
NOTE! On the last round of A.2 (marked with an arrow in the diagram) do not work treble crochets. Work as follows with dark blue: 1 chain stitch (replaces 1 double crochet), * 3 chain stitches, skip 2 treble crochets and work 1 double crochet in the next treble crochet*, repeat from *-* to end of round and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch at the beginning of the round. Cut and fasten the strands. 

STRAPS: 
Cut 4 strands of each colour of 120 cm = 24 strands. Lay the strands together and tie a loose knot, leave approx. 12 cm yarn before the knot. Divide the strands into 3 bunches with 8 strands in each bunch. Plait the 3 bunches together until there are approx. 25 cm left of the strands. Divide the strands in two. Thread the 2 parts through the bag (from inside out) on the third round from the top, leave 1 treble crochet between each part. Tie the parts together on the outside of the bag. Pick up the knot at the beginning of the plait and fasten this end to the bag in the same way but opposite side. Make one more plait in the same way and fasten it on the other side of the bag. Cut the ends of the strands so that they are the same length.

----------------------------------------------------------

PURSE:
The purse is worked in the round, bottom up. Work 21 chain stitches with hook size 4.5 mm with blue violet.
ROUND 1: Work 3 double crochets in the 2nd chain stitch from the hook, then work 1 double crochet in each chain-stitch row until there is 1 chain stitch left (= 18 double crochets), work 3 double crochets in this stitch. Now you are going to work the under-side of the chain-stitch row (the under-side of the double crochets you have just worked). Work 1 double crochet in each stitch (= 18 double crochets) and finish the round by working 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet. There are now 42 double crochets on the round.
ROUND 2: READ CROCHET INFO-2! Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round, change to dark blue and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 3: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet.
ROUND 4: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round, change to tan and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 5: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round, change to light beige and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 6: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 7: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round, change to off white and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 8: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round, change to light beige and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 9: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 10: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round, change to tan and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 11: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to mid front of piece, now work a buttonhole as follows: Work 2 chain stitches and skip 2 double crochets. Then continue with double crochets to end of round and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 12: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet as far as the chain stitches, around the chain stitches work 2 double crochets, continue with double crochets to end of round and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round.
ROUND 13: Work 1 double crochet in each double crochet to end of round and finish the round with 1 slip stitch in the first double crochet on the round. Cut and fasten the strands. Fasten the button on the inside of the purse on the opposite side to the buttonhole.

CORD:
Cut 2 strands of 40 cm in each colour = 10 strands. Tie the ends together at one end (leave approx. 6 cm before the knot) and divide into 3 bunches. Plait the strands, pull the end without the knot through the double crochet row in one side of the purse. Pick up the knot in the other end, lay all strands together and tie a knot. Cut the ends of the strands so that they are the same length.

Grazie per la risposta . saluti, marinella

Buongiorno , ora vivo in Argentina , nella Patagonia , ed essendoci basse temperature , lavoro solo la lana .Mi sono specializzata in Fair Isle , con ferri circolari , in genere . Sempre osservo gli schemi . Questo modello si potrebbe fare ai ferri , con gli aumenti inframezzati lungo i giri per lo schema A 1 e poi proseguire diritto con lo schema A 2 , o lo vedete troppo complicato ? Grazie Marinella

DROPS Design 13.04.2019 kl. 16:21:

Buongiorno Marinella. In base alla sua esperienza, è possibile riprodurre ai ferri il motivo jacquard. Il risultato finale potrebbe però essere leggermente diverso per via della diversa dimensione tra un punto lavorato all’uncinetto ed uno lavorato ai ferri. Buon lavoro!

Hallo, Danke für Ihre Antwort. Ich habe die Zunahmen genau so gemacht und es geht trotzdem nicht auf. Ich habe die ganzen Maschen sogar schon auf einem karierten Papier aufgezeichnet und komme auch so nicht hin, dass das Muster stimmt. Es ergibt die 99 Maschen, aber das Ende stimmt nicht.

DROPS Design 04.09.2018 kl. 10:49:

Liebe Frau Baerfuss, vielleich können Sie Markierer zwischen jedem Rapport einsetzen, so wird es einfacher jedes Rapport zu folgen and prüfen. Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Anne Baerfuss 02.09.2018 - 22:14:

Hallo, ich bin dabei, mir dies Tasche zu häkeln. Nun bin ich bei Reihe 9 angelangt, aber mir geht das Muster nicht auf. Beginnt mit 1 Masche dunkelblau, dann 5 Maschen in blauviolett, 3 Maschen in dunkelblau, 5 Maschen in blauviolett etc. Am Ende der Reihe geht es dann aber nicht auf. Interpretiere ich etwas falsch? Ich bin da bei 3 Maschen in dunkelblau und dann bleibt mir noch genau eine Masche der Vorreihe übrig. Eigentlich sollte doch der Schluss dann 2 dunkelblaue Maschen sein, oder?

DROPS Design 03.09.2018 kl. 15:42:

Liebe Frau Baerfuss, vergessen Sie die Zunahmen nicht: bei der 9. reihe in A.1 haben Sie: 1 M in dunkelblau, 5 M in blauviolett, 1 M in dunkelblau und 1 Zunahme (= 2 M in dunkelblau). Viel Spaß beim häkeln!

Dorotea 14.10.2017 - 20:44:

Non mi è chiaro se nei giri da 5 a 11 bisogna usare il diagramma A1

DROPS Design 14.10.2017 kl. 21:25:

Buonasera Dorotea. Sì deve continuare a seguire il diagramma A.1 fino al giro 11. Buon lavoro!

Most of your patterns specify if the terms are UK or US. This one does not. Which is this written in? I can guess, but I'd rather be sure. Thank you!

DROPS Design 14.07.2017 kl. 08:52:

Hi Jan, This pattern is found in both UK and US English, so you can choose, but if the one you are looking at has both cm and inch measurements it is US. If there are only cm measurements it is UK. Happy crocheting!

I'm from Algeria, and i love your designs ❤️ Thank you for sharing them.

Praktische, grosse Tasche. Würde ich farblich passend zu ee-616 häkeln wollen (beides aus Eskimo).
