Jane Austen Book Club Tote

Materials:

  • 4.50 Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry or Wool Needle
  • 8ply Yarn
  • Scissors
  • Measuring Tape

 

Instructions:
Approximately 10x11 inches (25x27 cm)

  1. I started by doing a Slip Knot. Then I crocheted 70 chain stitches.
     
  2. Chain 1, then skip 1 chain and single crochet into every chain. After making one row of single crochets, slip stitch both pieces together, but be sure not to twist it!
     
  3. Then I started making Puff Stitches!... I just love them, they always look so cute and are so fun to make!  Start of by chaining 3, then crochet a Puff Stitch into the next stitch. Chain 2, skip 1 stitch then crochet a puff stitch. Continue doing this all the way around.
     
  4.  After making 19 rows of puff stitch, I ended it off. Then taking my wool needle I sewed together the bottom of the 'round pouch'.
     
  5. Now it was time to get started on the strap. I made 6 chain stitches.
     
  6. I then started crocheting single crochets till the strap measured 125cm.
     
  7. Taking your wool needle again, attach the long strap to either side of the bag.
