Yorganza fabric is incorporated into this crochet bag pattern to create this one-of-a-kind Darling Ruffle Bag. Yorganza is a lightweight fashion scarf fabric that is commonly used to create ruffled scarves, but can easily be used to add ruffles to countless other crochet patterns such as this unique crocheted bag. Measuring 12.5 inches tall and 25 inches around, this roomy crochet tote is big enough to hold a variety of items. Two different prints of Yorganza is used (Tan Script for the body and Blue Roses for the handles), and just one skein of Red Heart Super Saver yarn is used for the bag.
NotesIf you look at the Yorganza yarn very closely you can see that there is a front and a back. Be sure to use the yarn from whichever end places the front of the yarn on the outside of your work. In my case I found that to be the inside end of the yarn.
