Crochet Round Hemp Bag

 
 
Hi guys! Happy Friday! We are still on holiday. Week two rolling in so the days blend into each other. I've been working on several projects at a time and I recently finished this bag.
 
This is a sample bag I made using hemp. Working on it was challenging. When I first started it I thought and felt I was going to bring my fingers to blood. Never before have I used hemp to crochet with, so it was difficult at first but after the first round side was made I got used to it and everything went smooth afterwards.
 
 
I wanted to add wooden handles but I didn't buy them prior our holiday so I crocheted them too and I also added tassels to decorate it. I had it envisioned something different but had to work with what I had on hands.
 
I am on my second bag as I write this. It goes much faster and needless to say I am addicted :)
 
Next I want to use some jersey yarn for this exact bag pattern. I think it would be awesome!

I love bags! And yes, that material is not easy! I once made baskets with a sort of rope, very hard for my thumbs and wrists but the effect is worth the effort! And a round bag is something different and unique, so well designed, once again!

I realise that the material might be tough to work with but the finished bag looks really nice. It is quirky and rustic yet has a bit of structure to it

It is worth the effort, Sigrid! I feasted my eyes for 2 years, watching similar bags and I wish I had some ratan at hand to make bags with.

I saw some straw round bags around here similar to yours, but they weren't crocheted. Yours looks pretty!

The holidays are agreeing with you Maya. They seem to be inspiring you into fashioning more pretties. This little bag you have imagined is so sweet.

Wow Maya, you are on vacation and still busy working on projects. This bag came out beautifully and so sorry to hear that it was hard and difficult to work with the yarn. It looks great and the perfect summer bag.

Thank you Kim. I would love it to be a mot funkier but this is the first time I use hemp. Let's see how it goes.

Thank you Kathleen! I like it because yoy can wear this to the beach and also have it out with you for coffee.

Thank you so much Julie!
I laughed when I read your comment because I really don't believe there is a crocheter who doesn't crochet while on vacation :)
