D Rings for attaching your Strap- I bought a bulk pack for making more interchangeable purses!
Note: we won’t be working with the strap for this section, and I’ll include instructions for a crochet strap. BUT I’m in LOVE with the leather strap I found on Amazon! It’s well worth every penny.
Part 2 of the Bonnaroo Boho Bag CAL
Sc- single crochet
Dc – double crochet
Sk – skip
Tr- treble crochet
Gauge and Finished Size
7 double crochet and 4.5 rows per 2”
Since this isn’t a garment, your gauge isn’t super crucial. However, it will affect the size of your finished bag, as well as yardage required. So if you’re choosing a stash yarn, try to make sure you have a little extra, or get creative with your tassels like one of my testers did!
Pattern Instructions – Part 2 of the Bonnaroo Boho Crochet Bag CAL
Body of Purse
Row 8. Ch 1, continue around and crochet 26 sc evenly across flat edge, ch 26, and slip st to join in the round. [26 sc, 26 ch]
Round 9: Ch 1, sc in each sc and ch around, slip st to join. [52 sc]
Using D rings? Attach them in Round 10 by crocheting over them. Place them at opposite sides of the bag, and secure them with at least two stitches.

Finish off and weave in all ends.
Cut 30 15” lengths of yarn, and divide into 5 groups of 6. Using a lark’s head knot, attach fringes and trim into a pleasing shape. I cut my center tassel at 7”, the next two at 6”, and the outer two at 5”.
Attach your leather handle to the D rings at each end of the bag.

Fasten off and weave in your ends.

I did mine shorter and made it a wristlet and it’s the perfect size for my phone. I think my next one I’ll do with a smaller hook. I’m thinkong for a big girl like me that they would make a good removable pocket. Instead of it being a purse around your shoulder make it belt like for those pants that don’t have pockets 👍https://www.ravelry.com/projects/frederica62/bonnaroo-boho-bag
