What does it mean to "sew chain stitch around the squares?" Which squares? I guess I'm missing something. I'm wanting to try to make this out of plarn.

Angela @ Off the Hook said...

This bag is awesome! Thanks for generously sharing your pattern.

Sayjai said...

To jbqcoaching:

The squares are the diamonds on the bag. There are three diamonds on each side(See diagram). Sew chain stitchs around them to make them in better diamonds shape.

What a beautiful purse! I'm very excited to make this, I bought all my supplies yesterday. I'm not extremely advanced, so I'm a little bit confused by the instructions for the "Bottom" portion, specifically the underlined portion. How do you mean by "working in ends of rows"? I understand the next line to sc down the piece - basically I think it's the generic idea that we are making a sc seam around the entire piece.

Thanks!

Sayjai said...

To Hannah:

Yes, row 41 is making sc around the bottom piece.

Typstatting said...

Gorgeous bag and thanks for sharing the pattern!

Sewbead said...

Wow-beautiful bag! Not very often that I see a crochet pattern that I get excited to make asap. Thank you!

You make 2 pieces of the bag, then sew them together, correct?

Sayjai said...

No, I made one piece, folded it and sewn on one side.

Ah. I should also let you know your grid was off. Row 36 has 8 popcorn stitches, but you only marked2 (not 4) on the chart. :)

Faddict said...

Hi thx for this, I'm making it up and just wondered how the bag was 'shaped' at the end to get the smaller top than bottom as the whole thing crochets up as an equal sided rectangle?? Thx

lovestitch said...

Wonderful pattern!!!! Thank you so much for sharing! :)

Eve said...

Merci pour ce patron ! :)

iyut said...

You've made it only one piece,folded it and sewn on one side. And then how the back side looks like? Is it using popcorn stitches too or not? Thank you ☺

Sayjai said...

To iyut:

Front and Back sides look the same.

Carlos Augusto Lozano said...

at the end of the "bag" section you said "sew chain around the squares" what do you mean by that?????? I would really like to know..:D

Un bolso realmente maravilloso.
Me recuerda a uno que tuvo mi madre, que estaba hecho como de cuerda.
Gracias!
