Finishing

Lightly steam the squares.

Join the squares following the schematic. Use Graphite to crochet the squares together on the RS. With WS facing each other, join yarn into right-hand corner and work 1 dc into both squares. *Ch1, skip 1 st on both squares, 1 dc into next sts*, repeat *-*.

Sew the seams with Graphite following the schematic.

Use Graphite to crochet the top border. Begin from a seam:

Round 1: 17 dc into each top square = 136dc.

From now on crochet into the back loop of the sts on the previous round.

Round 2: 17 dc into the six side squares, 12 dc into both end squares (evenly decrease 5 dc) = 126dc.

Round 3: 1 dc into each st = 126dc.

Round 4: 17 dc into the six side squares, 7 dc into both end squares (evenly decrease 5 dc) = 116 dc.

Round 5: 1 dc into each st = 116 dc.

Round 6: Work dc, evenly decreasing 6 dc = 110 dc.

Rounds 7-10: Work dc.

Now work 1 round of sl sts.

Lining:Cut a right-sized piece of fabric (make sure it reaches the top edge) and sew it into shape. Sew the lining onto the top edge by hand or machine (the pictured bag is machine-sewn). You'll have to fold the top edge a few times as the opening is smaller in circumference than the rest of the bag.

Handles: Cut suitable length of ribbon for the handles. The pictured bag has 70 cm handles.

Chain 8.

Row 1: Work 1 tr into 4th ch from hook, work 4 trs = 6 trs.

Row 2: Ch3 (= 1st tr), 1 tr, ch2, 2 trs.

Keep repeating row 2 until the handle is the proper length.

Ch3 (= 1st tr), 5 trs = 6 trs.

Insert the ribbon into the handle, stitch together with a few stiches and sew onto the top edge of the bag. Make another handle in the same manner.

Decorative ribbons at ends:Crochet 2 approx. 40 cm long chains of ch sts. Weave in the ends. Pass the chain through the corners of the top squares and tie into a bow.
