Pattern - Stripy Shoulder Shopping Bag


So this is one of my designs to use up my left over Lily Sugar 'n Cream yarn after making my son's new blanket (see blog post Numberblock Blanket )

Really quick, easy, perfect for beginners

Hook - 5.50mm

Yarn - I used Lily Sugar 'n Cream in various shades, this is a lovely aran weigh cotton yarn so nice and sturdy, however you can use any aran weight yarn in any fibre. I do think cotton works really well for this project though!

Choose a main colour which you will use for the underside of the bag, the top row and handles. I used red and for this pattern I will refer to red yarn in this instance.




Underside
With red, make 38 ch
Round 1 - 1 tr in 4th ch from hook (first 3 chs count as a tr), 1 tr in each ch to the end, working 5 tr into the last ch, then working into the bottom side of the chs, work 1 tr in each ch to end, working 4 tr into the last ch (which will be the bottom of the first 3 ch st), join with a sl st into top of first 3 ch st (78 sts)
Round 2 - 3 ch (counts as st), 1 tr in each of next 35 sts, 2tr in next st, 3 tr in next st, 2 tr in next st, 1 tr in next 36 sts, 2 tr in next st, 3 tr in next st, 2 tr in next st, join with a sl st into top of first 3 ch st (86 sts)
Fasten Off and weave in ends

Body of Bag
Working in BLO
Round 1 - join any other colour yarn to any st of previous round, ch (does not count as st throughout pattern), dc in each st around joining with a sl st in first dc (86 sts)
Round 2 to 49 - work as Round 1, changing colour randomly with each new round

Round 50 - lay the bag flat and count 6 sts in from the left hand side, join red yarn and crochet around as Round 1 (86 sts)
Do not fasten off yarn

Handles
Working in rows using red Yarn
Row 1 - 1 ch, 1 dc in each of next 12 sts, turn
Row 2 - 1 ch, 1 dc in each st until last 2 sts, 1 dctg in last 2 sts, turn (11 sts)
Row 3 to 7 - Repeat Row 2, on last row you should be left with 6 sts
Row 8 - 1 ch, 1 dc in eact st to end, turn
Row 9 to 88 - Repeat Row 8 (or until desired length)
Row 89 - 1 ch, 1 dc in each st until last 1 st, 2 dc in last st (7 sts)
Row 90 to 95 - Repeat Row 89, on last row you should be left with 12 sts
Fasten off leaving a tail of yarn, lay the bag flat again with the handle on the left hand side, count 6 sts from the right hand side and pin and sew the other end of the handle in place
Weave in ends.
