Flower Tote Crochet Pattern

The following pattern is my original design.
Please only copy or print this pattern for personal use.
Please contact me if you find any errors.


Red Heart 4 ply WW Yarn (white & orange)
Hook Size H for Tote
Hook Size G for Flower

Stitches: ch, sl st, sc, sc2tog, rev sc.

REVERSE SINGLE CROCHET (a/k/a CRAB STITCH) A reverse single crochet is worked from left to right; whereas a regular single crochet stitch is worked from right to left. Insert your hook into the stitch or space indicated, then yarn over and pull up a loop. (You should have two loops on your hook.) Yarn over and draw through both of the loops on your hook. This stitch takes a bit of practice but the outcome is well worth the effort.
