A little lacy crochet tote bag for summer, for odds and ends that I might take with me if I’m just going for a short walk to the playground – a pack of tissues, an apple, a small bottle of water, sunglasses.
The simplest bag imaginable, made of two lacy squares, a triangular flap, and a strap that is basically a super long rectangle.
A large, elongated bead attached to the tip of the flap serves as a button that goes into the middle hole (the center of the square).
Square pattern from a vintage Russian magazine:
The flap and strap are more or less freestyle – just make sure the tip of your triangle reaches the center of the bag.
Worked in thin, sturdy cotton thread with crochet hook number 2.5.
