Spooky Webbed Spider Bag

By:

For Halloween, a normal purse will never do.  Use this incredibly spooky crochet pattern from Ellen Gormley for Red Heart Yarn to crochet a bag fit for trick or treating around the neighborhood.

Bag measures 12” x 12.5” x 5.5” deep at base.

Abbreviations : A, B, C = Color A, B, C; ch = chain;
mm = millimeters; sc = single crochet; slip st = slip stitch
st(s) = stitch(es); tr = treble crochet; yo = yarn over hook;
* or ** = repeat whatever follows the * or ** as indicated.

Materials:

  • RED HEART® “Super Saver®”: 1 skein each 672 Spring Green A, 528 Medium Purple B and 312 Black C
  • Crochet Hook: 5mm [US H-8]
  • Stitch markers, yarn needle


GAUGE: 13 sts = 4”; 16 rounds = 4”. CHECK YOUR
GAUGE. Use any size hook to obtain the gauge.

Special Abbreviations
:
V-Stitch = (Tr, ch 2, tr) all in same st.

Surface slip stitch = Make a slip knot but do not place it
on hook. Hold slip knot on wrong side of fabric. Insert hook
into fabric from right side to wrong side; place slip knot
on hook and pull yarn to right side, leaving knot on wrong
side. Insert hook from right side to wrong side thru any
desired st or space, yo and draw a loop to right side.
To end a line of surface slip sts, pull up a loop on the right
side of fabric; remove hook from loop. Insert hook from
wrong side to right side and into dropped loop; pull loop to
wrong side. Cut yarn tail; place tail thru loop and pull taut.

Rev V-st (reverse V-st) = *Yo twice, insert hook into next st,
yarn over and draw up a loop, (yarn over and draw through
2 loops on hook) twice**; skip 2 sts, repeat from * to ** once
more, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

NOTES
Sides are worked with overlay rounds over background
rounds. Every fourth round, B is worked into the back loop
only of the C round and into both loops of the B round
to anchor the overlay to the background. When working
background and overlay rounds, drop the unused color
until it is needed again.
