This listing is for the PATTERN ONLY for the Blue Raspberry Evening Bag.

This elegant evening bag features the “crocodile” (or “scale”) stitch which gives it a unique, almost jewel-like appearance. It closes with drawstring handles that wrap easily around the wrist, allowing you the freedom to socialize at that cocktail party or tear up that dance floor without having to adjust a large bag from shoulder to hand.

The Blue Raspberry Evening Bag doesn’t have to be blue, of course. Use any color of super-soft or decorative yarn, or alternate colors for an even more unique look. The crochet draw string can easily be swapped for ribbon, chain, or fancy pre-made cording. Make one to match every dress you own, or make them in your wedding colors for your brides maids to use!

After cleared payment Etsy will send you a link to download the pattern, to the e-mail you have listed on your Etsy account. It will arrive as a four-page, high-resolution PDF. You may sell items made from this pattern, but you may not distribute this pattern in printed or digital form. By purchasing this item, you are agreeing to all copyright and policies outlined in the Policies section of this shop.

This bag measures about 18 inches around, 6 inches tall.
The stitches used are chain, single crochet, half double crochet, double crochet, treble crochet, and slip stitch (in American terminology). This bag is made in the round in two parts. There are no complicated stitches in this pattern, but you will need to have some advanced pattern-reading knowledge in order to understand the construction of this bag (there are symbol charts as well as written instructions). I consider this an intermediate/advanced level pattern.

I have included some symbol charts, diagrams, as well as links to tutorials for the special techniques. Of course, my door is always open if you have any questions!

HOOK/YARN: 4mm and 5mm, Medium (4)
