    Crochet bags can be constructed in many different ways. One key way to mix things up is with the handles, which may or may not be crocheted and could be added to the body separately or worked into the design. This striped crochet bag has built-in handles that slip right onto your wrist. The stripes on this purse are created by the yarn itself, and the stitches are simple, but worked in unique combinations to create a distinct texture.
