- BPDC (Back Post Double Crochet): Yarn over, insert hook from the back to front around post of stitch (from right to left), yarn over & pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through 2 loops, yarn over, pull through last 2 loops.
- Crisscross: Skip the next stitch, 1 double crochet in the next stitch, go back (working in front of the double crochet just made) and 1 double crochet in the skipped stitch.
- Handle Crisscross (while adding the handles with a ring): Following the crisscross stitch instructions above, you can add the handles into the stitches of the bag through ring (store bought or crocheted handles). Each ring will have 2 stitches worked through it, for a total of 4 rings. To add the handles, you will work the last step of the 2 double crochets through the ring. For example: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops, go through the ring, yarn over and pull through last two loops.
- Joining: You will be working in continuous rounds, I recommend using a stitch marker.
- Sample Shown is worked with two colors but the tote looks fabulous in any color scheme.
