    Hallo . If I want to make the Summer bag a little bigger , with how many stitches do I have to increase? THANK YOU.

    1. Hi there! Yo can add any multiple of 20 chains on your starting chain to make the bag wider. I would recommend to try with 40 extra chains. Then the zigzag pattern will still be symmetrical 😊
