Project Instructions

    Use a gauge of 15 hdc and 12 rows (4 inch) to crochet a bag that measures approximately 17 inch wide x 16 inch tall excluding handles. Remember to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches and rows to make a 4 inch square, try using a smaller size hook; if it takes you more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook. Download template for abbreviations not explained elsewhere and the pattern.
