The free crochet pattern for this gorgeous “Uptown Plaid Tote” is not only gorgeous, it also needs no lining and is sturdy enough to hold even groceries!
There is a full written pattern available at the link below.
However, because this is indicated by the designer to be a more advanced crochet pattern, there is also an instructional video that shows how the first few rounds of this tote are done, if you have any questions.
The finished size of the actual bag itself, not including the handle, is 14 inches wide x 9-1/2 inches tall.
You will need approximately 800 total yards of medium worsted-weight yarn, a US Size H crochet hook, stitch markers, scissors, and a tapestry needle to weave in the ends.
Techniques needed for this pattern include chain, single crochet, slip stitch, front post double crochet, and skip.
