My Easy Peasy Crocheted Bag

I sent my buddy bee, Michaela, a skein of Cascade Soft Spun yarn and she was looking for a pattern to use it that was something just for her.  So we both starting looking and we found the Easy Peasy Crochet Bag.  So we both decided to make one.
I started crocheting the bag on Friday night and I got this much done:

So I finished it and added the trim, handles and fabric lining on Sunday when I had some quiet crafting time alone!  Here is the finished product:

Here are the details behind this bag:
  • I used Cascade Soft Soun Yarn.
  • I used a size I hook.
  • I chained 8 to start.
  • I worked the base for 30 rows.
  • I worked 30 rounds for the body of the bag using up all the yarn.
  • I added the trim and handle made from Knit Picks Telemark Sport weight yarn.
  • I used a size F hook for the edging.
  • I braided the handles using 18 pieces of yarn for each handle.
  • For the liner, I used a fat quarter (18" x 22") of fabric following the pattern instructions.
  • I hand stitched the liner to the bag at each single crochet.
I am very happy with how this came out.  I may make some more of theses soon!  My hubby was impressed and thinks they would sell well at work or on Etsy.
