This stylish striped bag, created with a finely, textured single crochet fabric in cotton thread, is perfect for toting needlework and other necessities to your favorite café. Purchased handles give the tote a professional finish.

The tote’s construction starts with a rectangular base worked in rows and then transitions effortlessly to an in-the-round pattern for the sides. Almost-invisible round joins keep the stripes’ edges smooth. A round of slip stitches creates a sturdy top edge.
