I discovered some Lion Brand Cotton Thick and Quick yarn in my stash and decided to make something for me for once. Of course, that is not how it started. I thought I was making a tote to sell, but then I liked how it turned out too much to give it up.
I made the bottom in sc and four rows of the sides, then switched to a V stitch, 2 dc combination for the front and back, with dc on the sides. I crocheted together the seams and did a sc along the top. For the handle, I did sc and folded it over and whip stitched it together to make a double thick handle.
It holds plenty of library books so far, without digging into my hands.
