Styled after a bicycle messenger bag, it’s great on the bike or off. Constructed from traditional crocheted granny squares, this retro-inspired bag looks contemporary once again. Wear it crisscrossed over the shoulder and landing at the hip. The adjustable strap allows for a personal fit.

Crocheting Granny Squares: Four Corners Headband by MK Carroll

Granny Squares Patterns: Bangle Bracelet by Marilyn Murphy

Pattern #6

Gladiolus Vest by Robyn Chachula
