What you need to know
Work the cool and casual look with Joni, Lucinda Ganderton's striking crochet shoulder bag
The simple construction of this chunky bag really lends itself to the more complex colourwork pattern. Although it has the appearance of a checker board, you are only ever required to use one colour on any row. On your first row, you miss three chain stitches between a series of trebles, then on subsequent rows you work into these gaps using a special stitch to create the square effect. The plaited strap runs down the length of the bag giving extra strength, while the tassels add a retro finish.
