|Making Waves Bucket Bag by Kim Miller|
Skill Level: Intermediate
How much fun would it be to crochet this fashionable, striped bucket bag?
This versatile bag can be used as:
• a purse
• a craft/project bag
• a bag to take on your day at the beach
• a catch-all in your office space
• just about anything...
This crochet pattern is complete with instructions for the striped bag, the rope handle, and anchor. Plus, I've included a chart for the anchor, and I show you an easy way to add stripes without having to fasten off at the end of each round...leaving you with a ton of yarn ends to work in.
This detailed crochet pattern calls for 2 balls of Bernat® Handicrafter® 100% Cotton [50 g (1.75 oz)/73 meters (80 yds) per ball] in Classic Navy, 3½ balls of Bernat® Handicrafter® in Off White, and Scraps of Bernat® Handicrafter® in Red. You will also need a 4.00 mm (G) crochet hook (or size needed to obtain gauge), four 7/16” [11 mm (inner diameter)] eyelets, grommet tool and a yarn needle. This crochet pattern is complete with colour illustrations and directions on attaching the eyelets.
The finished bag measures 22.9 cm (9”) high, and 22.9 cm (9”) in diameter.
Please note that lining instructions are not included with the pattern, but you do choose to go with lining the basic shaping should make it both fun and easy.
