I made it ! I made it ! I made it !
Sorry for that but I just love reaching my goal, ok I didn’t reach my original one of Caoimhe’s Birthday but there was no way I was giving something I was not 100% happy with so I accepted that but I really did want the bag finished for a post today and its done !
and now for the drumroll ….
The pattern is from Lucy at Attic 24.
I wanted to add a thin stripe of dark purple with the lighter shades and this is why it was frogged so many times as the original pattern is just for rows of tr crochet and I added in the thin stripe in dc and had to take into account the increase rounds in the base. After finally getting that right it was plain sailing like the original bag from Lucy.
My original picture in my head had flowers up the side of it so added these on afterwards with more of Caoimhe’s favourite colours. She knew about the bag and the colour of it and picked the colours for the flowers but didn’t know what exactly they were for.
It was nice to keep something as a surprise for her with the bag !
Here she is modelling it,
The bag was done in Stylecraft Special DK yarn with a 3mm hook.
For today’s meme I’m checking in with Tami.
