It’s almost end of the summer but this Tulip bag can be used in four seasons. I use it as a beach bag this summer. It’s so classy and sturdy. The design is simple and will always be trendy, so this bag can be used over and over for years.
It’s medium size and can fit everything you might need on the beach or a friends gathering.
You can use any 4 ply yarn. I’ve used Alize Cotton Gold Plus (a little more than 2 balls) and 4,5mm crochet hook. For the cord / strap I use 6,5 mm crochet hook.
There are three videos; one for the bag, another for the cord and the third one for the granny square. I would like to see and share your finished projects. Please don’t forget to tag me at instagram ( @sirinscrochet).
Size 4 yarn
Double crochet: dc
When you see *( )** it means you repeat the instructions in between *( )** Where you see the word turn it means to turn your work clockwise and work back down the row.
Start with magic ring.
Row 1. Ch3+3dc+*(ch2+4dc)** sl st to the first ch3.
Row 2-10. Sl st to the ch2 space. And (Ch3+dc+ch2+2dc)in to the ch2 space+dc in dc of previous row+*((2dc+ch2+2dc)in to the ch2 space+dc in dc of previous row)**
I make this bag’s base 10 rows. If you want your bag bigger or smaller you will repeat row 2 until your bag’s base reach the size you want.
Count your dc, ch2 space to ch2 space. We have 52 dc after 10 rows. divide it to 2. Put a marker after the 26th dc. Do it every side and don’t forget this point. We will work 2 dc before and 2 dc after this point.
Row 11. Sl st to the ch2 space. *(2dc+ch2+2dc) in to the ch 2 space. 24 dc ( before 2 dc the middle point.) skip 4 dc in the dc of previous row. + 24 dc )**
You will repeat row 11, until your bag reach the size you want. We suggest 13 rows repeat.
For the handle you can watch the handle tutorial. Here I will share an easier version with you.
Sl st to the ch2 space+ch120+sl st to the next ch2 space.
Row 1: make dc every st.
Row 2: ch1 and turn, make dc every stitch, opposite to previous row’s dc.
Cut the yarn.
Do it for the second handle of the bag.
