RND 3 - 1 SC into the same st as you made the invs. sl st, next stitch 2 SC, 1SC, 2 SC , repeat from to until the end of the rnd), invs. sl st. - (18 sts in total) YouTube 10:00 - Third Row

Crochet Bottom Round



Sides

From now on you always have 60 sts (or any number of sts of your last rnd of the bottom) for the entire pattern.

RND 63 - in this row every 5th st you’ll create a ch sp = SC, SC, SC, SC, ch 1 (sk the st), SC…… In total you should have 12 holes in this row, your last stitch is the ch sp, invs. sl st

RND 64 - to RND 68 - repeat rnd 59



Finishing the Top

Cut a long string that you weave through the 12 holes and then you attach the cord lock. You can add 1 bead to the end of each tail just for a nice touch or make a knot so the cord lock will not slip (optional).



Strap

For the strap we crochet a basic Tunisian stitch. There’s no need for a special hook.



CH 5


Tunisian Crochet Step 1



















ROW 1 - insert the hook into the next ch and pull up the loop (keep that loop on your hook, then you pull up the loop through each ch and you keep the loops on your hook until the end of the chain (you should have 5 loops on your hook






ROW 2 - YO and pull up the loop through the first loop on your hook, then YO pull through 2 loops, YO pull through 2 loops until you get to the end of the row






ROW 3 - you can see the vertical loops on the row, insert the hook into the next vertical loop, YO and pull up the loop (keep the loop on your hook), this way you continue until the end of the row and you should have 5 loops on your hook again




ROW 4 to desired length - repeat ROW 2 and 3 with you last row or the row 2 ( I made 63” long strap).


DON’T SEW the strap together just yet.  


Assembling Yoga Mat Bag

Now grab your two wooden rings and attach them to the bag. One on the back of the bag (for the top one right behind the front where the cord lock is (on your 59th row - first row of the top part). The second one at the bottom on your 11th row (align the second ring with the top one so it’s straight under).




Assembling Yoga Mat Bag Strap


Once your wooden rings are attached then put the strap in it and make sure it’s not twisted. Connect the ends together, weave in all end and your YOGA BAG IS DONE:)

Your Bag is finished and now you are ready to do some YOGA!
