Mandala crochet bag free pattern

Make a mandala bag for your girl.
This is a free pattern for a mandala crochet bag. You can use what yarn you want and a proper hook.
Yarn - I used Charly yarn from Phildar: ligh and dark pink and grey - 1 skein of each
Hook no 6

Stitches:
single crochet - sg
double crochet - db
slip stitch - ss
chain - ch
You will work in round and you will join every row.



r1 - with pink - chain 3 (count it as the firs dc), make 9 dc into the ring, join with slip stitch (ss) in top of the ch 3 - you have 10dc


r2 - ch 4 (count it as the first dc and ch 1), *make 1dc in the next dc + ch 1* - repeat between ** 9 times, join with ss in the 3rd ch of the beginning 4th ch

r3 - with grey - ch 3, 1 dc into the base of ch 3, ch 2, *2dc in the next dc, ch 2* - repeat between ** 9 times, join with ss in the beginning of ch 3


r4 - ch 3, 1 dc into the base of ch 3, 1 dc into the next dc, ch 2, *2dc in next dc, 1dc in next dc, ch 2* - repeat between ** 9 times, join with ss in the beginning of ch 3


r5 - with dark pink - ch 3, 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in the next dc, * 2 dc into next 2 dc, 2dc in the next dc** - repeat between ** 9 times, join with ss


r6 - shell stitches - ch 3, 2 dc in the base of ch 3, ch 1, skip 1dc * 3dc in next dc, ch 1, skip 1dc* - repeat between **, join with ss
r7 - with light pink - ch 3, 1 dc in next dc, 2 dc in the next dc, * 2 dc into next 2 dc, 2dc in the next dc** - repeat between ** 9 times, join with ss


r8 - with grey - ch 3, 1 dc in every dc until the end, join with ss. Finish off. 


Make two parts for this bag. 
Tight the long tails on the back of every part, hide the tails using a hook or a needle. 



Here are the 2 parts. Even if I worked with the same hook and in the same day, the second part was smaller. I made another round with light pink with simple crochet in every stitch. Every part is almost 9 inches (22,5 cm) in diameter.


The part between the 2 parts of the bag - you have to sew it at the ends. I made it with grey yarn - ch 7, 1 sg in the 6th stitch from the hook, sg in every st, ch 1 and turn. It has almost 22 inches (56 cm).

Pin the grey part between the 2 mandala parts and crochet them together on the edges using single crochet. 




The handle - I used pink and light pink for the handle. I made it in the same way as the grey part - ch 7, 1 sg in the 6th stitch from the hook, sg in every st, ch 1 and turn.It has 40 inches (100 cm). I made a strip from fabric with sewing machine and I sew it on the handle. In this way the handle will not stretch out. 





I sew the handle at the end of grey middle part. 



Because the mandala crochet bag has some holes, I sew fabric inside. 



Happy crochet.
