This is the main part of your yarn bag finished.


Strap:
I used the cream for the strap.
Leave enough yarn at the start to sew the strap to the body of the bag.
Ch 101
Row 1)   1 sc in 2nd ch from hk, 99 sc, ch 1, turn
Row 2)   100 sc, ch 1, turn
Row 3)   100 sc, finish (leave enough yarn to sew strap to the bag)
Sew the strap to the bag using the yarn needle.  I sewed mine so it lined up with the bottom of the single crochet rounds. I placed mine in the middle of the bag so I can place it over my arm when crocheting standing up.


Lid (top):
I used the grey yarn as a contract for the lid.
Round 1)    Ch 12, ss to join
Round 2)    12 hdc (carry on at the end of each round & keep moving the stitch marker up to keep the start of the round marked)
Round 3)    * 1 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (18)
Round 4)    * 2 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (24)
Round 5)    * 3 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (30)
Round 6)    * 4 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (36)
Round 7)    * 5 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (42)
Round 8)    * 6 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (48)
Round 9)    * 7 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (54)
Round 10)   * 8 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (60)
Round 11)   * 9 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (66)
Round 12)   * 10 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (72)
Round 13)   * 11 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (78)
Round 14)   * 12 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (84)
Round 15)   * 13 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (90)
Round 16)   * 14 hdc, 1 hdc inc* x 6 (96)
Round 17)    sc around using front loop only (96)
Round 18)    sc around (96)
Round 18)    sc around, 2 ss, finish (leave enough yarn to sew the top to the body of the bag)
You can carry on the increase rounds if you want the lid to be on the outside of the bag.
I pinned mine and sprayed with starch to make sure the lid kept it's shape


Lid middle:
Round 1)      Ch 12, ss join
Round 2 - 5) Ch 2, 12 hdc, ss join
Round 6)      Ch 2, 6 hdc dec, ss join
Round 7)      Ch 2, 3 hdc dec, ss join, finish leaving enough yarn to sew to lid.
Sew the middle to the middle of the lid. You now have space for a hook to stick up and stay in place.

Now sew your lid to your bag. I sewed mine so that the lid was on the inside of my yarn bag.  This way I wouldn't need to have buttons for fastening etc.
