This week, I have made this beautiful crossbody bag. I started the bag from the bottom and the body part then went up in a continuous spiral. I have always loved crossbody bags. They are easy to cary, you can put a lot of items in there. Hope you like my pattern. Written instructions are below.

Notes: Begin crocheting the bag at the bottom, with rectangle shape thermal stitch pattern, and then proceed up the body, crocheting with star stitch pattern, which goes up in a continuous spiral.
