Honeycomb Tote Bag - Free Crochet Pattern


Hello Everyone! 😉

This time I would like to share my Honeycomb Tote Bag crochet pattern with you. 
The rectangular base is worked in turned rows, the body of the bag is worked in joined rounds and the straps are made as separate pieces and attached to the bag after it's completed. 
The pattern uses basic crochet stitches (US crochet terminology) - chain, slip stitch, single crochet and double crochet.
I used DK weight (size 3 - light) YarnArt Macrame cord type polyester yarn            (thickness - 2 mm) and a 3,5 mm (E4) crochet hook.

Feel free to scroll down for a free written pattern and a video tutorial.

Hope you enjoy!
Happy Crocheting! 😊
