Raised Diamonds Tote Pattern

On Sale
Added to cart
The Raised Diamonds Stitch that I utilize in this bag and several other designs I’ve created features a three-dimensional texture and pattern that grabs the eye and makes people ask, How did you do that? Unlike my previous purses, which close with a zipper, I wanted to design a bag with a sewing-free closure. Thus, this cinched tote was born.

Difficulty: Intermediate

I rate this pattern Intermediate in difficulty because it involves working in several rows at a time to create the raised diamond design that stands out against the background of the other stitches. It takes 9 rows to complete the construction of the diamonds, so be patient and enjoy watching your diamonds come together. It’s a fun challenge with rewarding results! I’ve included large pictures with the instructions that I hope will give you visual examples to assist you in learning the new techniques.

Approximately 8" Diameter X 10" H. Dimensions will vary slightly based on weight of yarn used.

DK weight yarns such as
Omega La Espiga Size 18 Nylon Cord - 3 rolls
OR Sinfonia - 2 skeins
Crochet hook size F (3.75)
8 1-inch steel rings

The bag can function with or without a fabric lining. Should you choose to sew in a lining, you can sew it by hand or machine, though machine will be faster. I have produced a tutorial to walk you through the process of making a lining which is available on my website.
