Rows 2 - 126, ch 1 sc in each of 7 st.  Do not fasten off, sc in each stitch around outsides of strap, making [sc, 1 ch, sc] in each corner.    Fasten off leaving long tail to attach to bag.

 

Position straps 3-1/2" from outside edge of bag.   Attach using tails.   (I sewed with regular sewing thread first and then used tails to finish).

Found you through Ravelry, and just as I needed a new bag project! I have a problem, though - Rnd 14 doesn't make sense - "dc in sp between second and third dc of next 5-dc group in next sp (between third and fourth dc" <br> <br>I don't understand what you're supposed to do in the "next sp (between third and fourth dc". <br> <br>Help, please?

I will correct Rnd 14 to add the word and. It should read: <b>Rnd 14:</b> Ch 3, * 5 dc in sp between first 2 dc, dc in sp between second and third dc of next 5-dc group <b>and</b> in next sp (between third and fourth dc); repeat from * across, sl st to join.

I am on the 13th rnd. I have redone it three times now and am still ending with the 2 dc group and not the 5 dc group. Am I reading something wrong. there are two empty sc in between each group, that I have made sure I alternated correctly. <br> <br>Thanks for your help!

This is my favorite tote pattern. I think I have made no less than 10 totes as gifts using this pattern. I do my handles though as part of the top round instead of crocheting them as separate and then sewing them on. Just a personal preference. But I love, love, love this pattern.

P.S. Kind of like your "in the round" handles.

I have 15 oz of yarn, so am short 1/2 oz of yarn. Can I make the bag slightly smaller by casting on 2 or 4 fewer stitches? Or will this mess things up? I am new to crocheting, so don't want to confuse myself too much.

So excited about this pattern, but now need help. To start round 15 I need to repeat row 13. But I am now working on top of double crochets from row 14. I am unsure where to skip and where to put my DC. Please help...
