Trendy Tweed Tote is an easy crocheted bag to make that's the perfect size for everyday use. Plus, it's even big enough to fit your current yarn project if you'd like to take your crochet on-the-go. It measures approximately 17 inches wide and 14 inches deep when complete. To give this bag stability and an interesting tweed-like texture, Red Heart recommends using two strands of yarn as you crochet. The green color will definitely have your friends feeling green with envy!

I loved making this tote bag, it was easy to follow and turned out perfect.

If you're looking for the perfect multipurpose tote bag, this one could easily be the one! It could be used to carry books from the library or fresh produce from the farmer's market. It can handle a lot of weight as the pattern calls for double the yarn throughout. It's quite the sturdy tote!

Here's the link to the origination pattern at Red Heart which includes amount of yarn and colors :) http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/trendy-tote-bag

What colors were used?

How much yarn and do you line the tote

Maybe I'm just not seeing it...but how much yarn is needed?
