I wanted it to be a hat; it however had a different plan. During our too long drive to Legoland I had brought along my yarn; of course. When I wasn’t sleeping or driving I was crocheting. So while it started out as a semi scrumble hat it became something else.
I like this open closed pattern it reminds me of a beach bag; though your keys and other loose items might get snagged. This bag has a simple draw string closure.
This one is small, just the size for a small handbag, but as usual my patterns are highly customizable. To make it larger just add more rounds to the bottom for a wider bag or more rounds to the top for a taller bag.
