This roomy tote is very appealing. Using grommets to attach the strap is very unusual, but the hardware ads to the look of the bag. Rather than try to copy the pattern above, I went directly to the Bernat site to find it. Its much easier for me to deal with patterns at the original site if at all possible. The free downloadable pattern for this bag can be found here http// == RC0103-003538V.html

Tried this craft? What did you think?

This is the first crochet bag that I have seen with grommets added. I suppose it is to add additional strength to the the straps for use. I think that it adds an added dimension of style. I can visualize this in other shades of seasons as well.

This is a beautiful tote. The bag looks very study with the addition of the grommets. The addition of the grommets will not allow the fabric of the piece to stretch out with daily use. I even like the colors the designer selected to crochet this tote in.

Bernat Yarns still offers this free pattern on their website. It is listed as just Striped Tote under their free crochet patterns section. You can download and save or print the pattern from there. Here is the direct link to it. http// == .html?id=186829 If you dont have all the materials you need to make this, you can also order it from there. The total cost is around $37 plus shipping.

This looks like a lovely and easy tote to make. You can never have too many totes. This is a good scrap yarn pattern as well. I love it! I am always looking for totes since I am always on a bus and/or train and I need something to put things in, better than a plastic bag. Thank you.

Wow. What a beautiful tote. This Twilight Woods Tote used earth colors that can blend with most color of clothes. The colors are well chosen, very subdued, very laid back. You may use pastels or vibrant colors if you want.

This is very pretty and I agree with the ratings as being easy. It's very easy, well written and right there in front of you. You can make it in the colors shown or you can make it for the spring by using pastels in blue, pink, yellows and lavender. This pattern is great for any color.

I am loving the spice tones used in this striped tote. Spice tones plus autumn eggplant- such a great combination for the season! Just do your stitches in alternating front loops and back loops and you will achieve the effect shown. I like the grommets for added strength and durability.

Can't find how to print this!

Hi Nancy, if you go to the top of the page, under the ratings graphic (with the stars), you'll see a handful of icons. If you hover over the "P", to the right of the envelope icon, you'll be able to print. Likewise, you can hit File and Print on your browser, or simply ctrl-P on your keyboard. Hope this helps!
