How to Crochet a Little Bag

bear-in-bagSo this is crochet video tutorial number 4! They’re trickier to put together than just my usual chats but there’s still a casual approach, which I prefer.

I decided to make a small version of my crochet beach bag for two reasons: one, I was curious about how it would turn out, and two, it would take an eternity to make and film the big version for a tutorial! I love what happened!! It’s such a cute little bag. Perfect for kids and perfect for those wondering what to do with that colour change yarn cake they’ve got stashed away.

Please take a trip to YouTube via this picture! Go on, give it a click!

I made the bag and poms poms and have just over 20grams left. The cake I used was Bernat Pop (140g) in Paisley Pop. My hook size was a 4.5mm but you might want to go down to a 4mm if you have loose tension.

There are some changes. The bigger bag used two 200g Caron cakes and has another increase round. The handles are also slightly different. Check out my blog post about that one here.

The PDF pattern is here: Crochet Beach Bag_zeens and roger

The changes? Well, this one only works up to Round 6 and then Round 6 is repeated 13 times. The next row after is half trebles. The handle has a couple of changes too: chain 71, and only work one row of treble clusters after the dc row. (remember that these are UK terms).

This bag measures approximately 28cm/11inches across and is 23cm/9inches deep. The handles (including the ends tucked inside) are about 47cm/18.5inches long.

Fancy making one? Let me know! And don’t forget to use #zeensandroger over on Instagram!

Episode 15 of a Crochet Vlogcast

Hey, I haven’t been here for ages!  Yes, I’ve been busy doing stuff but I also haven’t been able to edit photos!  I’ve been using PicMonkey since I started blogging but they recently started charging when it was once free. It means that any pictures taken couldn’t be squashed, cropped or edited and that’s no good. A long time ago we got a very old version of Photoshop, so I’m learning that instead. Hopefully normal service will resume soon.

In the mean time, fancy watching a crochet podcast? Vlog. Vlogcast… Click on the pic above and you’ll end up having a chat with me on YouTube!

Stuff I talk about (yeah, I know, it’s all about me this time!)…

Ravelry: free and paid for patterns designed by me! Including the Vintage Autumn mitts.

Etsy: my neglected shop, which has a few things.

Free crochet pattterns: right here on this blog!

And below are a couple of pictures to jazz up the post!

Episode 9 of a Crochet Podcast

Hey there! Episode 9 of my little crochet podcast/ crochet vlog is up and ready for goggling (I still can’t let go of “vlog” – I’m a pedant). Click on the image above to go to YouTube.

I’ve cut the interesting stuff. Sorry. Therefore there is no tale of how I drunkenly got the bruise on my arm. I deemed the whole saga as just too inappropriate! But give me a shout and I might tell you anyway ;p

Before I list any info about this episode’s stuff, I just want to let you know that there will definitely be a blog post about Connie’s blanket coming soon. I took the pics today. At the same time I also took photos of my fluffy Granny chevron cowl. There will be a post with the pattern for that on here in the next week or so too. Cheers.

Episode 9 gubbins:

The Magnolia Mandala by Crochet Millan is Here.

If you fancy treating yourself to some Phildar Flocon, then that’s Here. But you might want to hang on for episode 10. I’ve been given the go ahead to do a Giveaway!!
