SIDE ON BAG:
Work 78 chain stitches on hook size 3.5 mm/E/4 with spray blue. Chain stitch row should measure 43 cm. Then work stripes and pattern as follows:
ROW 1: Work with spray blue: 1 chain stitch to turn with, work 1 single crochet in every chain stitch (= 78 single crochets + 1 chain stitch).
ROW 2: Work with dark wash: 1 chain stitch to turn with, work 1 single crochet in every single crochet.
ROW 3: Work with heather: 3 chain stitches to turn with, work 1 double crochet in next single crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 stitch, * work 1 double crochet with mustard in next single crochet, 1 double crochet with heather in next single crochet *, work from *-* until 2 single crochets remain on row. Switch to mustard and work 1 chain stitch, skip 1 single crochet, 1 double crochet in last single crochet. Thread the twined string through hole in each side later.
ROW 4: Work with heather: 3 chain stitches to turn with, work 1 double crochet in next double crochet, 1 chain stitch, skip 1 chain stitch, * work 1 double crochet with mustard in next double crochet, 1 double crochet with heather in next double crochet *, work from *-* until next chain stitch on row. Switch to mustard and work 1 chain stitch, skip 1 chain stitch, 1 double crochet in last double crochet. Thread the twined string through hole in each side later.
ROW 5: Work with dark wash: 1 chain stitch to turn with, 1 single crochet in every stitch (work 1 single crochet around the 2 chain stitches on row).
ROW 6: Work with spray blue: 1 chain stitch to turn with, 1 single crochet in every single crochet. Cut the yarn.

Work along one short side with spray blue as follows from right side: Fasten strand with 1 single crochet, work 3 chain stitches, work 7 double crochet along the edge. Work the same way along the other short side. Fasten off.

CROCHET TOGETHER:
Use spray blue to crochet together. Now work the parts together through both layers in last round on circle and last row on the side of bag. Place the 2 parts together, wrong side against wrong side. Work from right side and begin with circle towards you: * Work 1 single crochet in first/next single crochet on circle and around the side on outermost double crochet (worked in one end on the side of bag) *, work from *-* 3 times in total (i.e. there are 3 single crochets around same double crochet and 1 single crochet in the first 3 single crochets on circle), then work 1 single crochet in next single crochet on circle and first/next single crochet on the side of bag. Work like this until next double crochet in the other end on the side of bag. * Work 1 single crochet in next single crochet on circle and around the side on outermost double crochet (worked in the other side of bag) *, work from *-* 3 times in total (i.e. there are 3 single crochets around same double crochet and 1 single crochet in each of the next 3 single crochets on circle). All stitches along the side of bag have been worked, and 36 single crochets remain on circle. Continue with 1 single crochet in each of the remaining 36 single crochets on circle. Fasten off.

Work the other circle to bag the same way but now work in the first chain stitch row worked on the side of bag.
NOTE: Make sure that the 2 circles are placed symmetrical to each other, so that the pattern is the same in both sides of bag.

TWINED STRING AND TASSELS:
Cut 4 lengths of 2 metres each. Twine the strands tog until they resist, fold the strands double so that they twine. Make a knot at each end. Make 3 more twined strings = 4 twined strings.
Thread 2 strings from the outside and through one of the holes in one side of bag. Tie a big knot to fasten the strings on the inside of bag. Repeat in the other side, and fasten the last 2 twined strings the same way in the 2 other holes.

Make 1 large and dense tassel in each of the colors shocking pink and heather.
Cut 60 strands 18 cm / 7'' long, tie one string (approx. 20 cm / 8'' long) around the middle and fold the strands double at the knot, wrap a new strand (approx. 20 cm / 8'' long) 3 times around all strands approx. 2 cm / 3/4'' down from the middle. Tie the strand and insert strand into tassel, cut the yarn. Crochet with 2 strands as follows: Fasten strand with a single crochet around string at the top of tassel, work chain stitches for 6 cm / 2 3/8''. Cut the yarn.
Make the other tassel the same way. Fasten tassels to one side of bag by threading the chain stitch row through the bag and tie a knot.
