japanese knot bag - summer bag - crochet tutorial

Japanese knot bag are usually made with fabric and sewed, but I liked the design and made a crochet pattern for this bag. This summer bag has a round shape, is partially made with the granite or moss stitch and closes by pulling the longer strap through the small strap. The bag will have a diameter of approx. 19 cm /7.5 inch. The height will be approx. 27 cm /10.6 inch high (without straps). You can put your cellphone, credit cards and keys in this bag and still have some room for sunglasses and a book and towel.
