Tunisian Crochet Crescent Bag
The Tunisian Crochet Crescent Bag is a unique crochet pattern to work up because it doesn't use a traditional crochet hook. Instead, a Tunisian Afghan Hook is needed to work up this particular crocheted bag, in addition to a regular 6.5 mm crochet hook. This bag is made in three different Tunisian crochet stitches, in the short row technique, for its unique look. After crocheting, the bag is felted, giving it extra strength. Tunisian crochet is a great medium for felting and produces beautiful results. The crocheted tote measures about 17 inches across and 16 inches tall (not including handle).
