This was a bit of a challenge but got there in the end. This bag is crocheted in a cotton yarn in a pale khaki and sand colour. The stitch is called crocodile or mermaid stitch because of the scale design which i found on the net. I added two crocheted handles and a large flower to finish it off. The pattern suggested both sides in this pattern but i gave it a plain crocheted back and did the same edging to match on the front part at the top.
