Tiny Tote Bag Pattern...

About three years ago I designed this pattern for a tiny tote bag. I am still working on a new design for the handle as I really do not like the way the original one looks with the rest of the pattern. I have been told, however, that it looks reallt nice. I have recently places it in my Etsy shop with larger and better pictures. Drop me some feedback on what you think...



Here is the pattern instructions:

Materials: 1 skein 2 1/2 sport or worsted weight yarn.

Crochet Hook #G-6

Gauge 16 HDC= 4'/10 cm


Pattern: Purse;

Chain 33

Row 1: SC in 2nd stitch from chaing *skip stitches, 5 DC in next 2 stitches, SC in next stitch *; repeat from *. Continure till end of row ending with 5 DC. Turn and chain 1.


Row 2: SC in 3rd stitch (middle stitch of shell); *skip two stitches, 5DC in next stitch; skip  2 stitches, SC in next stitch *, repeat from *. Continure pattern till end of row ending with 5 DC. Turn and chain 1.


Repeat rows 1 and 2, 9 more time for a total of 20 rows.


Handle:

Chain 80

DC in every 4th chain till end of chain.

Sew purse sides together, leaving 4 rows unsewn for the flap. Sew handle to purse sides bein careful not to twist the handle.
