Japanese knot bag are usually made with fabric and sewed, but I liked the design and made a crochet pattern for this bag. The bag has a round shape and closes by pulling the longer strap through the small strap. The bag will have a diameter of approx. 16 cm /6.3 inch. The height will be approx. 18 cm /7.1 inch high (without straps). The black bag has a longer strap that you can put over your shoulder; the multi color (red) bag has a smaller strap to put over your wrist or arm. You can put your cellphone, credit cards and keys in this bag.
