Approximate Time: 8 hours. I crochet slow
With wrong sides together join yarn at top left corner and work 1 row of SC around to opposite corner to join 3 sides of bag.
With right side of work facing, join yarn at seam and work 1 round of SC around top of bag. Join with slip stitch.
Make 2 handles. Ch 49. I made mine longer. DC in 4th chain from hook and each chain to end. Chain 3 (counts as first DC) 1 DC in each DC to end of row. Turn. Third same as row 2. Do not turn.
Fold strap in half length-wise. Work 1 row of SC through remaining loop of foundation chain and corresponding stitch of last row to join edges together. Fasten off. The handles are double thickness. Sew on handles using needle and thread.
I got the pattern free at the craft store.The website is http://www.sugarncream.com/. It calls for Lily Sugar 'n Cream 2.5 oz. yarn. However, I just used what I had.
