Pattern

Square

You may do up any granny square pattern (preferably flat ones), here’s a very basic granny square pattern.
You may choose to CH 2 or do a standing DC as the first stitch.

*(3 DC, CH 2, 3 DC) in CH-2 space, CH 1* × 4

Repeat R3 – working

  • (3 DC, CH 2, 3 DC) in each corner,
  • 3 DC in each CH-1 space and
  • spacing each 3-DC with CH 1.

For reference, I made 11 rows and came up to 33×33 cm.
Repeat for the other square.

Strap + Side of Bag

  • Attach yarn to/make standing SC in 2nd CH of any corner in BLO.
  • Work SC BLO in each stitch for 3 sides of the square (Repeat row for wider side)
  • Continue with FSC to make up length of strap

For reference, I made 100 FSC and came up to 100 cm.
Repeat for the other square.

Assembling

  • Place squares with the 3 sides aligned
  • Join by SS or sewing
  • SS the straps together by the BLO as well
  • Skip stitches to make button holes;
    • Work till 17 stitches from the end
    • Skip 1, make a loose CH, and continue SS in next 3
    • Repeat till the end
  • On the other side, sew on 2-3 buttons to attach your strap.

This makes your strap adjustable; since crocheted straps stretch with weight and shrink back if unused for a while.

Optional – Add a toggle button for closure

And you are done~
