14 stitches × 16 rows in 10 × 10cm – not very important here, just make any size you want!



Tip: Beginning chain determines the wideness of the base. Begin with a longer chain if you want a slimmer base and work lesser rounds.

Repeat Round 3 until you reached your desired size. I stopped at Round 12 with 116 stitches and my base measured at L28 × B20 cm.


You can use any stitches to build up the body of the bag. I used the Moss stitch i.e. alternating CH and SC. And I used LSC in place of the SCs.

The same stitches are used for the cover. After 20 rows of 33 stitches and narrowing down to 30, I ended the cover with a row of SCs to make it easier to fix the lock buckle.

For the straps, I used thermal SCs, and the result is a thicker and sturdier strap.
