I made a bag for my friend’s blanket. I based the pattern on Lily’s String Bag. It’s more mesh than what Lily’s pattern is. No solid bottom like their pattern. When I ran out of blue yarn, I used white to finish off the top. I sc in sc, 3 sc in ch 5 space all the way around. Then I did a row of seed stitch. I then crocheted a handle. I like it. I used Caron Simply Soft that I had around the house and a size G hook for the bag and J hook for the handle.

It measures 15″ tall x 17″ wide. It’s pretty stretchy. If I make another one, I may combine the yarn with thread or use something not so soft like Red Heart. But I really like how this turned out.
