Summer is here and I needed a bag to take with me to the farmers market to hold all my goodies! I stumbled upon this lovely bagdesigned by Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream This bag can be used in so many different ways! Take it to the beach, use it as a purse, use it as a book bag if you’re a student, use it as a project bag and take it wherever you go to continue your crochet projects!
I used different colors than the pattern calls for, so you can use my color choices, you could stick to the original written pattern color scheme, or you can make up your own color scheme! Make it one solid color if you’d like! The creativity possibilities are endless!
Here is the video tutorial on how to make this tote bag.
I have been struggling to make cardigans or a sweater for some time. I have tried different patterns but had difficulty following some of them and creating something that would be worth wearing. I gave up, until I found this!
This week I was experimenting with different patterns and I came across this Granny Square Cocoon pattern from Maria Valles. I knew instantly that I had to make it! It was the perfect design and easy to follow. I’ve made a few of my own modifications, and I used an entirely different color scheme, but that’s the joy of crochet! I added an accent color on the edging to give it a fashion flair.
Here are a few photos of me wearing my finished piece. I added a gemstone brooch as a front enclosure to tie the piece together. I LOVE IT!
Here is a step by step video tutorial on how I created this lovely cardigan. This is a great addition to any wardrobe! It’s like wrapping up in a blanket on a chilly morning! Grab your crochet hook, a cup of tea (or coffee, if that’s your thing), and join me making this cocoon sweater!
To make this smaller or bigger, Measure from the bottom of the neck to the bottom of the buttocks and your Granny Square should be that wide. Then follow along with the rest of the pattern for the outer edge and sleeves.
