Gloria Bag

gloria pouch, popcorn stitch, free crochet pattern

This is a free crochet pattern for Gloria Bag.


I found this Handbag Pouch pattern on line, and after I posted it, a lot of my crochet friends were asking for the pattern. Since it was not my own pattern and I did not own it, I had difficulty deciding how I was going to go about posting the pattern. To give proper credit to the pattern owner, I got the pattern HERE. 

 In order to accommodate everyone,  I translated it into English written pattern with photo tutorial in each step.

In the instructions below, I made it bigger since, I wanted a shoulder bag and not a handbag, so I adjusted some stitches. If you want the shoulder bag, follow the BOLD [ bracket ] .

Disclaimer: This is not my pattern and I have posted this on my site for the purpose of understanding and translation since others could not understand the original pattern. Credit is accorded to this LINK.
