How ya doin’ today? Getting a lot of crochet done? I know it’s the busy season, or at least it is for me. I feel like ever spare second I have goes toward crocheting something for someone because I’ve got a lot to get done before January.
That’s why I came up with this design, it’s quick and makes a cute little gift for you or someone else. I was able to design and complete this in one evening, so I hope it goes as fast for you and checks a couple of gifts off your list. 
Materials:

  • US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Worsted/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
  • Yarn needle

Gauge:

  • 4″ x 4″ = 15 scs x 14 rows (BLO)

Terms/ stitches:

  • RS: right side (side that faces out)
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in 2 sections: the bag and the handle.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Following the first row, sc into the back loop (BLO).
  • If you don’t work this pattern in the back loop only, it might end up leaning. You can block the finished item to make it lean less.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the cuff portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parentheses means.
  • Color A is red and B is white.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.

Note:

  • Every row of the sides are worked into the back loop only. (until you get to the handles)
  • Every stitch in the sides portion of the pattern is a single crochet, because of this the directions only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses then tells you how many single crochets to make.
  • Following the ch 1, the first st is worked into the same st as join.
