Trendy Tweed Tote

Trendy Tweed Tote is an easy crocheted bag to make that’s the perfect size for everyday use. Plus, it’s even big enough to fit your current yarn project if you’d like to take your crochet onthe-go. It measures approximately 17 inches wide and 14 inches deep when complete. To give this bag stability and an interesting tweed-like texture, Red Heart recommends using two strands of yarn as you crochet. The green color will definitely have your friends feeling green with envy!
