Straps 26 inches long and 2 inches wide Bag 17 inches long by 15 inches wide when measured on a flat surface Handle Drop 14 inches My Go To Bag is my practical, everyday crocheted bag. I wanted a bag I could use for everything - from beach bag to book bag - a single crocheted base gives this bag extra support - the first few rounds are crocheted in double crochet and then the main bag is worked up in an easy to work granny stitch stripe pattern. I chose to make my straps slightly wider than most bags because when you fill the bag and the straps stretch, they will remain comfortable on your shoulders. If you would like to have a narrower strap, it is very easy to change the width of the strap. Simply add one extra decrease repeat of: Sc2tog, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sc2tog. Ch 1, turn. 4 in place of R11 of the straps and for R80 work: 2 sc in the first st, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, 2 sc in the last st, ch 1, turn. 6. Have fun making this simple, attractive and practical Go To Bag! You can substitute any yarn and hook for this stitch pattern - just remember when you substitute if your gauge is different, the finished size of your project will also be different.

Crochet bags are some of my favorite projects because I can put them to use right away, no matter what the weather. But, I must confess that I don’t love sewing in liners. Without a liner, I’m limited in what I can carry inside of a crocheted bag. In this pattern and tutorial, I show you how to crochet this ripple bag and how to make an easy, removable, duct tape liner. Skills used Basic crochet stitches: chain, double crochet, single crochet, slip stitch Crocheting flat in rows Skipping stitches, changing colors, crocheting into chain spaces (with photo tutorial)
