ch 65 (you can make the bag larger. just make ch in multiples of 8 + 1 ch)
<---front part--->
row 1: dc in 5th ch from hook, 6 dc in next ch, skip 4 ch, sc in next ch, *skip 4ch, 7 dc (shell) in next ch, skip 4 ch, sc in next ch; repeat from * throughout the end of row 1, turn.
row 2: ch 3, dc in first sc; *ch 5, 3 dc in next sc; repeat from * ending with 2 dc in last sc, turn.
row 3: ch 3, 3 dc in first dc, *sl st in ch 5 sp, 7 dc in middle dc of next 3 dc; rep from * ending with 4 dc on last dc, turn.
row 4: ch 1, sc on first dc, *7 dc on next sc, sc on 4th dc of shell; rep from * ending with sc on last dc, turn.
repeat rows 2 through 4 until you reach your desired height, fasten off.
<---back-->
attach yarn to first ch of base.
row 1: sc on first ch, *skip 4 ch, 7dc on next ch, skip 4 ch, sc in next ch; repeat from * through out the end of the row.
repeat rows 2 through 4 of front part until you've got the same number of rows as with the front part, fasten off.
<--assembly-->
sc throughout on each side, fasten off.
<--drawstrings-->
you could use 2 pcs of cord or ribbon then weave through the topmost row 2 pattern;
or, make 2: ch 151, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc up to the last ch. weave through the topmost row 2 pattern of the bag then fasten, off.
