Free Crochet Pattern: Nerd Life Tote Bag

I designed this pattern a couple months ago for the Yarnpunk blog, and now I can share it with you here!  The Nerd Life Tote Bag is perfect for carrying around laptops, books, and everything else you need!  It’s worked flat in two pieces, seamed, and then finished in the round, and it features a stranded tapestry crochet design.  Plus, reusable bags are better for the environment… You can look cool and reduce your plastic use at the same time; it’s a win-win!

The free pattern is below, and a low cost ad-free PDF is available in my shop here: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/nerd-life-tote-bag
