  1. Thank you for this pattern. It is lovely. As a cancer survivor I truly appreciate your Amazing Grace patterns.

  2. I’m making the blanket and several hats for the cause. I love the patterns, thanks so much!!

  3. Thanks so much for the pattern! That is definitely the best bag I’ve seen in a long time! Starting one tonight!

  4. cute bag for sure :) Pinning to share and save for later. found via Hooking on Hump Day!!

  5. Nice pattern. Thank you for the gift. Pinned for later use.

  6. Wow, I really like this tote. Looks so sturdy and useful. And what a great cause. Glad to have found you via Hookin’ on Hump Day linkup.

  7. […] Amazing Grace Tote by Elena Hunt, on Beatrice Ryan Designs: I love the use of metal rings on the handles – looks fab! […]

  8. I’m going to try this pattern. Thank you. I’m participating in a breast cancer walk in houston may 10th and am crocheting things to sell and the proceeds go to the acs. My grandmother and 3 aunts on my dads side have or have had breast cancer. Thank you for this great inspiration.

  9. Beautiful Bag. Does it stretch down when items are put in it? I really like your Spa Trio Gift Set also.

  10. I love this bag but I am having a difficult time reading the pattern as its over the background of granny squares. Is it available elsewhere? I would love to try to make one.
    thank you

  11. Thank you for my next project. It looks great. I have skads of partial skeins that will make a very nice colorful bag.

  12. Very nice! I love the simplicity because it leaves it open to so many variations.

  13. I am absolutely in love with this bag. i have gotten the bottom made so far and had to stop to let you know how much I love it already. I am making this for my mom for mother’s day and HOPING I have it done by then. I know she will love it! Thank you so much for the pattern and for such a great cause. I also like seeing everyone doing it for others with cancer. Such a great thing to see these days. :)

  14. Love the patterns and the cause. My mom is a cancer survivor. One question, is the bag with grocery items (pictured above) a different pattern? It looks like it is layered or has a pouch on the side.

  15. Hi! I love this pattern and am almost done! All I have left to do is the handle & assembly! My question is what hook size do we use for the handle? Are we still using the K hook?

  16. This is a beautiful pattern, and coming at the end of the school year, I see a couple of lucky teachers getting these bags. I have undone several rounds three times now, but the dc clusters keep shifting. How did you make yours line up so nicely?

    Thanks for the pattern!

    • The clusters always go in the chain 2 spaces and the chain 2 space always goes in the center stitch of the cluster… so they should always line up straight… Not sure what you would be doing to make them shift… but I hope this helps

  17. WHY CAN’T I GET SOME OTHER THINGS YOU HAVE FOR PATTERNS? MARJORIE

  18. As a cancer patient, I cannot thank you enough for dedicting this pattern. I have bookmarked it an plan to make some to donate and I will include a tag with your info for others to share as well. And, I do love the bag!

  19. The bottom of my purse is curling, cannot figure out what I am doing wrong! help!

    • If you have the correct stitch count at the end of each row for the bottom, you should be fine. Sometimes when working in the round this way, the piece can curl slightly or be a bit wavey until blocked or used. When you start the walls of the bag it may take care of the issue. If you do not have the correct stitch count that would be the problem

  20. Should we be using the smaller hook when doing the SC’s in round 35? Or just keep on using the K hook like the instructions imply?

  21. I am so happy to have finished this project! I pretty much stick to beginner-level projects so this was a stretch and grow experience. Thank you for your clear instructions and for supporting breast cancer awareness. God bless.

  22. I know you said it can be donated for people with cancer. I was wanting to make a couple and donate them for autism awareness if its okay. Then they would raffle them off. Look forward to hearing from you soon.

  23. I found them at the local hardware store,, but craft stores should have them too
