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.



The diagram is divided into 6 parts; B.1-B.2-B.3 and C.1-C.2-C.3.
When working diagram B, start each round with diagram B.1, B.2 is repeated to end of round and finish with B.3.
When working diagram C, start each round with diagram C.1, C.2 is repeated to end of round and finish with C.3.

1 cord is worked as follows: Cut 2 strands of Paris, each 2 metres in length. Tie a small knot in each end. Twist the strands together until they begin to resist, fold the cord double and it will continue to twist. Untie the small knots and tie a new knot at each end.




The piece is worked in the round, bottom up. A twisted cord is fastened to the bag and the bottom of the bag sewn together to finish.

Start by working 36 chain stitches with hook size 4.5 mm and Paris. Form the chain stitches into a ring with 1 slip stitch in the first chain stitch. Now work according to the diagrams - read PATTERN - see description above. Start with diagram B; on the first round 1 double crochet is worked in each chain stitch = 36 double crochets. Continue with diagram B until the piece measures 10 cm; adjust so the last 2 rounds are 2 rounds of double crochets - REMEMBER THE CROCHET TENSION. Continue with diagram C – read PATTERN, see description above. When diagram C has been completed, the bag measures approx. 13 cm. Cut and fasten strand.

Make 2 TWISTED CORDS - see description above. See diagram A.1 for details of how the one cord is thread through the holes at the top of the bag. The other cord is threaded through the same holes but started on the opposite side - see diagram A.2. Untie the small knots in the end of each cord and tie together the ends of the 2 cords in same side. Sew the bottom of the bag together.


= the round starts with 1 chain stitch, and then continues with C.2 or B.2
= the round starts with 3 chain stitches, and then continues with C.2
= 1 chain stitch
= 1 double crochet
= finish round with 1 slip stitch in first chain stitch on round
= 1 treble crochet in double crochet
= 3 TREBLE CROCHETS WORKED TOGETHER: Work 2 treble crochets in next stitch, but wait with the last yarn over and pull through on both these treble crochets, work 1 treble crochet in same stitch and pull last yarn over through all 4 loops on hook
= finish round with 1 slip stitch in 3rd chain stitch on round
= 1 double crochet around chain-space

Hej! När jag virkar denna påse så blir den bredare ju högre jag gör påsen. Jag är ganska säker på att jag gör något fel. I påsen ser det ut som att den blir bredare där jag virkat B.1 och B.3 (har aldrig fortsatt längre än B, har aldrig gjort C). Skulle jag kanske kunna få en lite utförligare förklaring av hur man virkar övergången mellan B.3 och B.1.
