Instructions:

Ch 70 (you can adjust the chains to make it narrower or wider if you like, just make sure it is an even number)

Round 1: ch 2, Work a hdc in the first ch and in each ch around.

Round 2: ch 2 then work a hdc in each st. Join with a sl st to close the round.
Repeat round 2 for three inches or until desired height.

Round 3: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1). Skip that very first stitch, then work a (dc, ch 1). *Skip the next st and in the next st work a (dc, ch 1). Repeat from * to the end of the round. Join with a sl st to close the round.

Round 4: Ch 4 (counts as a dc, ch 1). Work a (dc, ch 1) in the first st and in each st around. Join with a sl st to close the round. Repeat round 4/mesh portion for eight inches or until desired height.

Round 5: ch 2, *Work a hdc in the first ch 1 space, then work a hdc into the next st. Repeat from * to the end of the round. Join with a sl st to close the round.

Round 6: ch 2 then work a hdc in each st. Join with a sl st to close the round.
Repeat round 6 for three inches or until desired height, do not fasten off yarn yet and move onto the handle/strap portion below.

To work the handle, work a hdc in each of the next 8 stitches. Ch 1 and turn. Work a hdc in each stitch across. Repeat this row until handle/strap is as long as you'd like it to be. (I made mine extra long (40 inches) to make mine a "crossbody" style, but you can make it shorter for a shoulder bag style if you want.

Fasten off, leaving a long tail. With a tapestry needle, sew handle to opposite top side of bag with the whip stitch. Turn bag inside out and seam the bottom of the bag closed with a whip stitch. Turn bag right side out and weave in any ends that remain.
