I like the unique shape of this over the shoulder tote bag. I am accumulating ideas for bags to give as gifts. I think this one is good for a book, glasses, and my phone...I'd take it to the park and sit on a bench. The variegated colors add interest without having to do an advanced stitch!

I found out that the sc, ch 2, hdc in same st is called the S-edge cluster. So, when you do the 2 sc in back loop of each sc around, they want you to make sure that the ch-2's of the previous row are pulled forward, which they pretty much do on their own.

I made this bag in a weekend and it is awesome! I am making more now for gifts this Christmas. I get compliments on it each time I use it. Thanks for the great pattern.
