I made this bag out of the yarn I once tried to crochet a hat/skirt/bucket with. Despite its scratchy feel (I actually planned on throwing it away!), I’m in love with its color and was just waiting for a stroke of inspiration to point me to the right project.
This was very easy crochet. It’s also mindless but with a beautiful shell stitch pattern this time 💗 💖 💘 I finished it in one weekend 🙆 🙆
I hadn’t expected it to be this roomy 😁 It definitely doesn’t look ‘baggy’ in a big, shapeless sort of way. The original pattern doesn’t call for it but I had some yarn left over from this fancy li’l skirt, and it really looks nice as a finishing touch crocheted around the bag opening and handles 😁
