I love the modern and simplistic color pops on this fun Nettleton Crochet Bag! An added bonus video is also linked in the pattern to create the Macrame Feather Keychain shown on bag. Check out how to make a Macrame Feather.

Notes:

-This handbag is worked in the round from the bottom to the top.
-The Ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
-To reduce a traveling seam use the hook over method. This occurs when completeling the last step of the single crochet instead of placing the yarn over the hook, place the hook over the yarn and complete stitch.
-For small color sections such as the yellow the yarn can be carried on the back of the bag. For larger sections fasten of each round and either weave in end or tie strands together if placing a bag liner.
