Sand Dollar Market Bag Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
Joining motifs in a diamond formation adds visual interest and allows you to create shapes and dimensions you wouldn’t have when joining them square. For example, the bottom of this bag is flat because of the placement of one motif in the center. Plus, the 4 motifs along top edge add greater depth and stability to the handles because of their pointed corners facing up.
The construction of this bag is so fun, and can easily be modified to create a wider or taller bag. The diamond construction method for motifs is so interesting to me, and is inspiring me to create garments with it, too!
