  • How to stitch a knit or crochet bag. Shoulder Bag In Khaki - Step 1
    Step 1

    Basic pattern 1
    Work sc (UK dc) in rows, with 1 ch at the beginning of
    each row to replace the first sc (UK dc).
    Basic pattern 2
    Work dc (UK tr) in rows, starting each row with 3 ch to
    replace the first dc (UK tr).

  • Step 2

    For the front inside, work 54 ch + 1 turning ch, then work
    10¼in (26cm) in basic pattern 2: dc (UK tr). Then for the
    base, work 2in (5cm) in basic pattern 1: sc (UK dc), and for
    the back 10¼in (26cm) in basic pattern 2. Work ½in (1cm)
    along the top edge in basic pattern 1. Then for the flap,
    work 9½in (24cm) in the lacy pattern as shown in the
    diagram. The pattern repeat consists of 9 stitches. Turn
    the rows as described above. Keep repeating the pattern
    and rows 2 to 7.

  • Step 3

    How to do it
    For the sides and the strap (make 1), work 8 ch + 1
    turning ch. Work 64in (162cm) in basic pattern 1. Sew the
    narrow sides of the strap to the base, to both sides of the
    front inside and to the back. Steam the seams.

    Tip: If you prefer, sew a zip in the top edge of the front and
    back for added security; it will be concealed by the flap.
