Mother's Day Crochet Bag

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick®

GAUGE:

8 sts + 6 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm) over Dash st pattern with larger hook.  

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

rev sc (reverse single crochet) Single crochet worked from left to right (right to left, if left-handed). Insert hook into next stitch to the right (left), under loop on hook, and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all loops on hook.

Dash St Pattern (worked in rnds over a multiple of 4 sts)
Rnd 1: With A, ch 1, sc in first 2 sts, *bring B to front under A; with A, sc in next 2 sts, bring B to back under A, sc in next 2 sts; rep from * to last 2 sts, bring B to front under A; with A, sc in last 2 sts, bring B to back under A; join with sl st in first sc.
Rnd 2: With A, ch 1, bring B to front under A; with A, sc in first 2 sts, bring B to back under A, with A, sc in next 2 sts, *bring B to front under A, with A, sc in next 2 sts, bring B to back under A, with A, sc in next 2 sts; rep from * around; join with sl st in first sc.
Rep Rnds 1 and 2 for Dash st pattern.

NOTES:

1. Base of Bag is worked first, then body of Bag is worked in rnds.
2. Body of Bag is worked in a Dash st pattern. In this pattern, B yarn is moved from the front to the back of the work to create strands of B across the Bag. After working the first few rnds, pause to 'read' your work. You'll need to understand how the pattern emerges as you work the increased sts into the pattern.
3. Fabric is cut and sewn to make a lining for the Bag. The sewing can be done by hand or machine. The lining is hand sewn into the Bag.
4. Handles are worked separately then sewn to top of Bag.


BAG
Base

With A and larger hook, ch 12.
Rnd 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch to last, 3 sc in last ch.
Turn to work across foundation ch, sc in each ch to last ch, 2 sc in last ch; join with sl st in first sc – you will have 24 sc at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in first st, sc in each st to center sc of 3-sc group, 3 sc in center sc, sc in each st to last st, 3 sc in last st – 28 sc.
Rnds 3 and 4: Ch 1, sc in first st, *sc in each st to center sc of 3-sc group, 3 sc in center sc; rep from * once more, sc to end; join with sl st in first sc – 36 sc at the end of Rnd 4.

Bag Body
Increase Rnd:

Rnds 4-10: Work in Dash st pattern as established, stranding B across the increased sts to match pattern – in other words, if you've increased just 2 sts, you would move B to back or front of your work, then work the increased sts to match the Dash st pattern.
