Making a Crochet Wheelchair Bag

This is not exactly a pattern but instead a way of adjusting a different pattern in order to make a wheelchair bag. I have 2 versions here.

Version #1:

First off, find a pattern for a scarf that you like. Make sure it's either the width that you want the bag to be, or is easily adjusted width-wise.

Then, just make the scarf. But don't make it the length that the pattern will call for. Measure how long you want the bag to be and double it. If it was me, I'd add 5-6 inches so that I could make a fold-over flap closure for it.

Once you get it made, then make 2 hangers for it:

Row 1: Ch 4. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn. (3 sc)
Row 2-22: Ch 1, sc in each sc across. Turn.
Row 23: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, ch 1 (buttonhole), sk next st, sc in last st, turn.
Row 24: Ch 1, sc in each st and in each ch across, turn.
Row 25: Ch 1, sc in each st across. Do not turn.
Rnd 26: Working around outer edge, in ends of rows, ch 1, evenly space sl st around. Join with sl st in beg sl st. Fasten off.
Sew end of hangers (end without buttonhole), evenly spaced across one side of top edge of bag.

Sew buttons to remaining side opposite buttonholes.

Version #2:

This one is made from granny squares. You can make the squares any size you want and/or make as many squares as you want. Just be sure to make double for the front and back of the bag.

The following is one of the patterns from a book I have. I'm not including the sizes because you can make them as big as you want. I'm sorry I can't include a picture but my scanner is not working.

Granny Square Bag:

Step 1: Make 8 granny squares.

Step 2: Sew the granny squares together making 2 strips of 4 squares each.

Edging: (I'm going to call the color for this B. You can of course use contrasting or matching color)

First Side:

Row 1: Working down one long edge of one 4-square strip, join B with sc in corner ch sp, sc in each st across with hdc in each seam, ending with 3 sc in corner ch sp, turn.

Row 2: Ch 3, dc in each st across. Fasten off.
Second side:
Rep row 1 of First Side only.
Rep First Side and Second Side Edgings on long edges of remaining 4-square strip.

Hangers (Make 3):

Row 1: Ch 4. Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across. Turn. (3 sc)
Row 2-22: Ch 1, sc in each sc across. Turn.
Row 23: Ch 1, sc in 1st st, ch 1 (buttonhole), sk next st, sc in last st, turn.
Row 24: Ch 1, sc in each st and in each ch across, turn.
Row 25: Ch 1, sc in each st across. Do not turn.
Rnd 26: Working around outer edge, in ends of rows, ch 1, evenly space sl st around. Join with sl st in beg sl st. Fasten off.
Sew end of hangers (end without buttonhole), evenly spaced across one side of top edge of bag.
