Inga’s Häkelbeutel

Inga's HakelbeutelProject: Inga’s Häkelbeutel
Size: 18×18 inch
Pattern By: Inga Joana Mertins
Hook: H
Yarn: Various colors of RHSS and mystery yarns.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: You may remember I made a series of 16 Square Target squares from the “200 Crochet Squares” book last year. This is the project they were for. Since the squares were 7 inch, my bag is pretty large! At 18×18 inches it holds a lot. To get it to stand up for the picture I stuffed it with a lapghan and several skeins of yarn and it still isn’t full.

This pattern is a marvel of construction. It makes a flat bottomed bag with a beautiful shape. I made the handles 6 rows instead of the 3 called for since my squares were so big. But remember that you add two more rows when you finish it by crocheting all around the top of the bag. I found it helpful to mark the A B C and D squares to correspond with the pattern diagram so that I didn’t end up attaching something in the wrong place.

I love this pattern. I’m already starting on a second bag as a gift. 😀

      Thanks. I hadn’t seen one like it before either. When I saw the pattern I was hooked… so to speak..

      I don’t think you’ll regret making it. It’s easy and fun!

    This is also a project on my (very long) to-do crochet list! 🙂 Well done! Hopefully I’ll do mine before this year is over.

      It’s such a great little bag and really doesn’t take that long to make. It took me one afternoon to assemble it after I had all the pieces. I crocheted the handles at the grocery while I was waiting for my bus! I like it because it’s modular and you can work on a piece here, a piece there. It might be cool to make it with all different square patterns, too!
