Crochet 5 large grannies after chart with crochet hook, size 5.
Start with a magic ring or 6 ch.

2.row: 3 ch, 1 dcr into same space, + 2 dcr into next space +..., finish row with 1 sl st into 3rd ch.

space 3 ch 3 dcr into same space, 3 dcr into next space,...
(==> 4 groups with 3 ch between 3 dcr ==> 4 edges)....finish row with 1 sl st into 3rd ch.
5.row until 15.row: repeat always 4.row ==> in each row you will have one more group of 3dcr.
Connect always 2 grannies with scr, use crochet hook, size 3,5. It should be a cube when you finished.
Around the upper edge work 5 rows scr in one colour,
use crochet hook, size 3,5.
Prepare the lining: cut out 5 squares 33 x 33 cm. Make one inside zipper pocket, then sew the square together --> should also be a cube.
Pin the fabric cube into the crochet granny cube, pin alls the edges and sew them with transparant nylon thread.
Prepare the cord, I used two strands, each 50 cm, for one handle.
Sew it on with transparent nylon thread.
With another colour crochet around the bag
and also over the bag handels, scr --> foto. (crochet hook, size 3,5).
Now sew on the bag handels properly with transparent nylon thread.
Pin the lining to the finished upper edge and sew it from right side of bag --> foto.
Now sew on a tulle ribbon around the upper edge of the bag.
At inside of bag cover the fixed ends of the bag handels with yarn, use a tapestry needle.
Trim the fabric and sew around at the upper side of the tulle ribbon.
Now wait for the summer, enjoy your bag ! Maybe in diffrent colours...
