2 Strand Crochet Tote Bag





This is my 2 Strand Tote Bag. As the name goes I made this with two strands of yarn in Red Heart Love Pewter and White. But you can choose any color combination you like.

Materials:


Instructions:
      Use two strands of yarn in every stitch. 

R1.   Make a Magic Ring
R2.   Chain 1 then make 6 Single Crochet (SC) in ring. Join with a slip stitch (SL) in first sc of the round. Close the the ring tight. (6 SC).
R3.   Chain 1 then 2 SC in each stitch of the first round. Join with  SL in first sc of the round. (12 SC)
R4.   Chain 1 then SC in first stitch and  2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join. ( 18 SC)
R5.   Chain 1 then SC in first 2 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join.( 24 SC)
R6.   Chain 1 then SC in first 3 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join (30 SC)
R7.   Chain 1 then SC in first 4 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join ( 36 SC)
R8.   Chain 1 then SC in first 5 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join ( 42 SC)
R9.   Chain 1 then SC in first 6 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join ( 48 SC)

R13.   Chain 1 then SC in first 10 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join ( 72 SC)
R14.   Chain 1 then SC in first 11 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join ( 78 SC)
R15.   Chain 1 then SC in first 12 stitches and 2 SC in next stitch. Repeat around, then join ( 84 SC)
Break the yarn.  Make 2 of this bottom part of the bag. On the second one DO NOT BREAK the yarn. 

R16.   Join the two bottom  of the bag with a SC with WRONG SIDES facing each other.
R17 - R35   Chain 1 then SC in each stitch around. (84 SC)
R36.  Chain 1 then SL in each stitch around. (84SL)

With the handles of the bag. Cut 18 strands of the yarn. For this bag I cut 18 strands on a 40 inch long. Then I separated each in three groups each with same amount of yarn. Then I braid them. Make two braided yarns for your bag.  Now your bag is ready for lining. There are so many ways to line a bag in the internet. Line your bag first before you attached the eyelets. Now with bag already lined and eyelets attached you can attached your braided handles also through the eyelets. And that's it. It is that easy. Hope you enjoy making your new bag.
