COLOR CHANGE:
To get a neat transition when changing colors, work the last slip stitch of the round with the new color as follows: Insert the hook in the last chain stitch from the beginning of the round, pick up the new strand, make a yarn over with the new strand and pull it through the stitch on the hook.
----------------------------------------------------------

BAG:
The bag is made up of 10 squares with different color combinations.
Work 2 squares of each COLOR COMBINATION – see description above. Work according to A.1 and start as follows:
Work 7 chain stitches with hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 and Paris and form them into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Continue according to diagram A.1, changing color on each round – read COLOR CHANGE. NOTE! Round 6 does not start in the corner of the square, but in the middle of one of the sides of the square.

ASSEMBLY:
The bag is worked together with gray blue and hook size 4.5 mm/US 7. Lay out 8 of the squares (squares in color combinations 1 to 4) as shown in A.2. Start on the right side and lay squares 1 and 2 wrong side to wrong side. Start in the chain-space in the corner and work 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces. Continue with 1 single crochet in each single crochet on both squares, finish with 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces in the corner. Lay square 3 with wrong side towards square 2, work 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces in the corner, continue with 1 single crochet in each single crochet from both squares and finish with 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces in the corner. Continue like this until the 8 squares have been worked together. Then work square 4 at the end of A.2 together with square 1 at the beginning of A.2, so that the bag is joined in both sides, finish with a slip stitch in the first single crochet worked on squares 1 and 2. Cut and fasten the strand.

Now work the last two squares to the bottom of the bag as shown in A.3. Start at the bottom right corner, lay square 5 with wrong side to square 1, work 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces, work 1 single crochet in each single crochet from both squares, finish with 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces in the corner. Lay the next side of square 5 with wrong side towards square 3, work 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces, work 1 single crochet in each single crochet from both squares, finish with 2 single crochets around both chain-spaces in the corner. Continue until the last 2 squares have been worked to the bottom of the bag and finish with 1 slip stitch in the first single crochet. Cut and fasten the strand.

CROCHET EDGE:
Crochet an edge around the opening on the bag. Work with off white and hook size 4.5 mm/US 7 as follows:
Work 1 single crochet in the join between the 2 middle squares on the bag (squares 2 and 4 in A.3), *skip 2 single crochets from square 4, work 5 double crochets in the next single crochet, skip 2 single crochets, work 1 single crochet in the next single crochet *, repeat from *-* 3 more times, work 1 single crochet + 3 chain stitches + 1 single crochet around the chain-space, * work 1 single crochet in the next single crochet, skip 2 single crochets, work 5 double crochets in the next single crochet, skip 2 single crochets *, repeat from *-* 3 more times and finish with 1 single crochet in the join between the next 2 squares. Continue like this around the whole opening on the bag, finish with 1 slip stitch in the first single crochet.

TWISTED CORD:
Cut 8 strands off-white of 4 metres in length. Twist them together until they begin to resist, fold the cord double and it will continue to twist. Tie a knot in each end. Fasten the cord through the chain-space from the crochet edge on the top of one of the squares and the other end in the top of another square on the same side of the bag. Leave approx. 8 cm / 3 1/8'' as a fringe after the knots. Repeat on the other side of the bag.

Hej, finns det en instruktions video någonstanns på hur man virkar rutorna till drops 187-35. Jag klarar inte att läsa diagrammet...\r\ntack på förhand Jenny

Rekt de draad niet uit als je iets in de tas steekt en de tas draagt? Maw: is er geen binnenvoering nodig? Mooi patroon! :)

Dag Caroline, De tas zal inderdaad altijd wat uitrekken bij gebruik, dus het is een heel goed idee om er binnenvoering in te naaien.
