Rnd 9: (you need to use a stitch marker on all 4 sides in the center of the square, so about 13 stitches from each corner then place a stitch marker, on all 4 sides, because you will need to create a gap on all 4 sides) sl st into the previous chain 2 space, Ch 3, dc in the previous chain 2, *dc in each of the next stitches until you reach the center, skip the stitch before the stitch maker, then skip the stitch with the stitch marker, and skip the next stitch after the stitch maker, which is 3 skipped stitches, dc in the next stitch, dc until you reach the chain 2 space, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the chain space, *Repeat around, end with 2 dc and ch 2 in the last chain space, sl st in the beg ch 3

Rnds 11-desired depth of the bag: During rounds you can add colors with a sl st in the beginning. I added two rounds of pink after 8 rounds after the stitch marker part, so I added pink yarn twice, then blue yarn twice, then pink yarn again twice. sl st into the previous chain 2 space, Ch 3, dc in the previous chain 2, *dc in each of the next stitches until you reach 3 stitches before the center, 2dctog, skip two stitches, 2dctog, dc until you reach the chain 2 space, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the chain space, *Repeat around, end with 2 dc and ch 2 in the last chain space, sl st in the beg ch 3 Strap 

Handle: I hook, with blue yarn, slip knot onto your hook with your yarn, *work 3 sc in the previous chain 2 peak, sc in the next 12 stitches, until you reach the skipped chain space, that's about 12 sc (may vary) until you reach the previous 2 double crochet together, work 2 single crochet together decrease, this will skip the previous gap, then sc until you reach the chain 2 space peak. 

*Repeat around the top of the bag, finish with a sl st. Straps: H hook, Make 2, chain 95, sc in 2nd chain from the hook, sc in each chain across. 

Fasten off. Sew the strap into the center sc of one of the peaks. Sew the other side of the strap to the other side of the other peak on the same side then flip over and do the same for the other strap. *Repeat again for the other strap. Fasten off and Weave in your ends. End with a sl st into the sc of the peak with the handle. Fasten off and Weave in your ends.
