What’s the best crochet stitch for a bag strap?

Most people will recommend the US single crochet stitch to create a crochet bag strap that will not stretch, but there is a variation of the single crochet that will make a less stretchy strap – the Thermal Stitch. 

Like any crochet stitch, there will always be a little stretch, but the way that the thermal stitch is worked over the previous 2 rows, working through toe back loops of the 2 stitches creates an extremely firm fabric, ideal for bag straps.
