I haven't had any decent sleep yet. 30 hours and counting... Brain refuses to shut down, my body is running on coffee and more coffee. Oh well, might as well use the time to update my blog.
Life has taken over my schedule and crochet has taken the back seat. But since Christmas is just around the corner, I had to insert some crochet minutes into my day. I aim to give handmade Christmas gifts this year, fingers crossed. Let me share what I am working on.
I've been looking for a simple crochet bag pattern that would fit one very important criteria: it should be big enough to fit my umbrella in. Of course, it has to be easy enough to crochet. I scoured Pinterest and Ravelry. Finally, I found it.
The pattern is called Virkattu Kassi. It is a free pattern on Ravelry. When you click on the link to the pattern, it will lead you to a page written in Finnish. Fire up Google Translate and you may be able to understand it a bit. There is a picture with a crochet diagram but it doesn't zoom out.
I love crochet diagrams as I find them easier to read.
I wanted a bigger and readable diagram of this pattern. Pinterest didn't disappoint. I found it. :)
The pattern is adaptable enough that I would probably make some changes in the future to make it bigger or make the straps long enough to be a cross-body bag.
Until next project! Happy crocheting. :)
