Crochet Bucket Bag

Lion Brand® Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Cotton Hemp

GAUGE:

16 sc + 17 rnds = 4 in. (10 cm). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Crochet Bucket Bag Reviewed by dctccopeland@gmail.com on 2013-03-24 *****
This pattern was very easy. I am making them for Easter baskets/ bags for some little girls who will love them. The picture makes the look of the final product very clear. :)
