Size US D/3.25 mm crochet hook
1, Size US 35/19 mm knitting needle
3 1/2″ wide x 6 1/2″ long, excluding fringe and handle.

Row 2: *Holding knitting needle in left hand, slip 5 loops from needle to crochet hook; [YO, pull through loops, YO pull through rem loop to close], 5 sc in center of hole just created; repeat from * to end. Turn.
Rep Rows 1-2, six times more.
Next Row: Ch 1, sc in same st and every st across.
With WS together, sc two pieces together.
Join yarn at top-edge of one side of the bag. Esc (extended single crochet) for 34″, or desired length, join at top-edge of the opposite side of the bag.
(Note: This technique can also be called foundation single crochet, when used as the beginning of a project that’s being built upon.)
Weave in ends.
Fringe: (Make 6)
Cut 3, 12″ strands to make one fringe bunch.
Attach to bottom of the bag. Fold fringe bunch in half; insert hook through the right side of bag edge and lay bunch at the folded point over the hook; pull the bunch through, from back to front, just enough to create a loop; set aside hook and use your hands to fold the loop over the edge of the project, and pull the ends of the strand through the loop. Pull tight.
Repeat evenly across. Trim, if necessary.
