Both of these Bags are made with Berroco Estiva, a super soft, 100% cotton tape yarn that’s perfect for Spring & Summer knits and crochets. It’s comfortable, easy to knit with, and it comes in gorgeous gradient colours that fade from light to dark. It’s bulky weight yarn so it works up fast!
This crochet bag is substantial! Seriously, it looks big enough to carry EVERYTHING. Measuring in at 58″ around top edge and 19″ deep (not including straps) the only thing that won’t fit inside is the kitchen sink. It’s a dense crochet, so it’s going to be sturdy … nothing’s falling out the bottom of this baby.
I really like this pattern … the medallions in the upper third are really pretty, they’re a very crochet aesthetic. But I also like the stitch pattern that’s been used for the middle part of the bag. It creates a really subtle feature that adds extra interest and visually breaks up the bag. Many crochet bags are designed in the single crochet stitch because it is dense and sturdy, but it’s also a bit bland. I’m going to give this one a try and see how the stitch turns out, maybe I’ll be able to add something to my repertoire!
