Amelina Small Project Bag
This project bag was inspired by vintage knitting bags and resized for projects without long needles. It is ideal to transport small works in progress and should fit around 150g (5 ¼ oz) yarn in project/ball form, an average sized crochet hook, DPN or circular knitting needles and your notions.
The pattern includes a diagram and photos for steps where a visual aid might be handy.
- Cotton aran/worsted yarn in 3 shades: 90m (100yds) in main colour (MC); 40m (45 yds) in end/trim colour (CC1); 5m (5 yds) in flower colour (CC2). I’ve used Lily’s Sugar ‘n’ Cream and Drops Paris Cotton in mine
- 4.5mm hook (US 7) or suitable hook to achieve gauge, usually the lower size in the range on the yarn band suggestion
- Yarn needle and scissors
The pattern has two versions: UK crochet terms and US crochet terms so be sure to choose the right download for you.
The body of the bag and handles are crocheted flat, back and forth; ends and flowers are worked motif style.
You could also make handles with ribbon or choose a matching pair of buttons instead of flowers.
