The Hooked For Life Polka Dot Duffle Bag is very handy for day-to-day life. You can use it as a gym bag, a carryall, or a shopping bag on your next trip to your local yarn store (as it can hold lots and lots of yarn). The polka dots are crocheted in a basic single crochet panel, placed by following a chart, then embellished with surface crochet. A fabric lining and zipper are sewn in, then the spiral-crocheted strap is sewn on.
