Roomy and stylish, this is functional crochet at its finest. This bag has room for all your daily essentials, a book, and your current scarf or hat project. A small messenger flap closes the bag sturdily with a double button closure. Crocheted with a double strand of Patons Sorbet, a bulky, cotton-rich yarn, this bag is super sturdy and ready to stand up to the rigors of daily use.

This is an advanced beginner/easy level crochet pattern. Knowledge of basic crochet stitches and how to follow a crochet pattern are necessary.
Please note: This bag is incredibly sturdy and able to stand up to daily use, but to get it this way, the pattern is, as crochet goes, a physically demanding project. You will need a metal yarn needle - not plastic. In my case, I needed a pliers to pull the yarn needle through while weaving in ends.
