The Diamonds in the Puffs Tote Bag is the perfect accessory for a day out.
The bag is worked in the round in one piece from the bottom up. Filet diamonds alternate with rounds of puff stitches in a contrast color, which add a pop of color. The handles also feature puff stitches in a contrast color.
The pattern includes 4 written sizes, but information is included to customize the size and look of your bag, such as adding more puff stitch rows or additional contrast colors.
The size is adjustable. Make a small bag to use as a purse. A larger bag makes a great reusable shopping bag. Information is included to adjust the width and height of the bag.
