A Fiber Trends Pattern by Lily M. Chin. To function properly, a bag must have room at the bottom to
expand when filled with things. Flat envelopes will not do. The easy solution is
to begin with a strip for the bottom, then pick up sts around and work upwards.
The length of the strip, as well as the overall height of the body of the bag
determines the size. Sizes: Cell
Phone/Eyeglass Holder - about 4½" wide x 7½" high. Purse
- about 9" wide x 7" high. Tote - about 18" wide x 15"
high. Yarn Requirements:
Worsted-weight mercerized cotton.
We used 74 (222, 666) yds of Tahki’s Cotton Classic II (74 yds/ 50g
ball). 74 yds of contrast color will trim all bags. A
7/8" button for Cell Phone/Eyeglass Holder and for Purse. Crochet
Hook: Size G (4.0 mm). You may use any size hook that
is appropriate for your yarn, but aim for a firm, non-stretchy gauge, using
perhaps a size or two smaller hook than what the yarn would normally call for. Gauge:
8 sc and 9 rows = 2"(5 cm); 1 Scallop St = 1½" (3.75 cm).
