The Mosu Bag is a crocheted Japanese knot bag that is handy, practical, and can be used year-round! It is made completely in one piece and comes with a full video tutorial. The size can easily be adjusted and customized. The name of this bag, Mosu, is inspired by the moss stitch used in this design, as it is the Japanese word for “moss”. The moss stitch, also known as the linen stitch, is very easy to crochet and produces a beautiful texture as the final result.

This project works up beautifully with solid colors, variegated yarn, or self-striping yarn. It is recommended to use a yarn that does not stretch, such as 100% cotton yarn. If desired, you may add a cloth lining in the bag or to the underside of the straps to add durability.

The Mosu Bag is perfect for kids, adults, teachers, friends, parents, and more! This accessory works well as a wristlet, market bag, clutch, purse, tote, and handbag. Sell them at craft fairs or make them as gifts for birthdays or holidays. The PDF pattern includes photo references and full written instructions.
