Chunky Crochet Tote Bag
"The Billow Tote is a quick and stylish make thanks to the bulky yarn and easy pattern repeat. Using just basic stitches – the single crochet and spiked single crochet – this bag has a stylish and eye-catching texture. Plus, the stitch pattern is seamless, giving a polished and professional finish to your bag. Whether you’re heading to the market or the beach, the Billow Tote bag is the perfect accessory to carry all your bits and bobs. Make your bag in one or two colors or go for full-on stripes for a super colorful accessory! You can also choose to crochet the bag straps (as I have done) or even sew on some leather straps to suit your own unique style."
