Chunky Button Bag

Chunky Button Bag

The Chunky Button Bag was completely inspired by the yarn I used. When worked in single crochet, Fantasy Naturale creates a very dense and sturdy fabric, perfect for a bag!

Finished Size: 12 ½ inches wide, 10 ½ inches long

Materials: Plymouth Yarn’s Fantasy Naturale (100 % cotton, 100g, 140 yards) – 3 skeins

Hook: US G (4.5mm) or size needed to obtain gauge

Notions: Yarn needle, 4 large buttons (the ones I used came from Joann and are about 1 ½ inches wide)

Gauge: 14 ½ single crochet = 4 inches

Special Stiches: Mesh Stich (Chain 2, skip 2 stitches, double crochet into the next stitch…) repeat across row. When you get to the end of the row, end with a double crochet.
