See diagrams A.1 to A.4.




Work piece back and forth from side to side in one piece. Then work an edge in each side with corresponding handle, work edges in the round.

Work 31 chain stitches on hook size 3.5 mm with Muskat. Work first row as follows: 1 double crochet in 2nd chain stitch from hook, work 1 double crochet in each of the remaining 29 chain stitches = 30 double crochets on row. Then work A.1. When A.1 has been worked, there are 3 rows in total with double crochets. Insert 1 marker in piece, NOW MEASURE PIECE FROM HERE.
Work next row as shown in A.2. When row A.2 has been worked, there are 30 treble crochet on row with 3 chain stitches between every treble crochet. Then work A.3 back and forth. REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION!
NOTE: Note that when working A.3 the piece will contract somewhat in each side because last treble crochet on row is worked in first chain stitch at the beginning of previous row.
When piece measures approx. 70 cm from marker (measures in the middle of piece where it is not contracted), work A.4 so that piece ends the same way as it started. After A.4 fasten off.

Work a handle in one side of piece as follows: Begin from right side along one side of piece that contracted when tote bag was worked, work 1 double crochet in each of the 3 double crochet rows along double crochet edge, work 2 double crochets around each treble crochet along the edge and then work 1 double crochet in each of the 3 double crochet rows along double crochet edge = approx. 76 double crochets on row. Do not cut the yarn, but work a chain stitch row of approx. 50 cm for handle and fasten chain stitch row with 1 slip stitch in first double crochet worked on this round. If you want a shorter or longer handle adjust according to preference but note that the handle will stretch when it is used.
Work 3 more round with double crochets around the edge and handle, i.e. on first round work 1 double crochet in every stitch, but along handle work 1 double crochet in every chain stitch. NOTE: Begin every round with 1 chain stitch (= 1 double crochet) and finish every round with 1 slip stitch in chain stitch at beginning of round. Cut and fasten the yarn. Work edge and handle the same way in the other side of piece.
