Give Us A Kiss!

Hi everyone! 

How’s your week going? Me? Oh, I’m feeling a bit on the stressed out side. Getting over being a bit sick over the weekend and getting news last week that we may be moving this year. I hate moving, personally, but I do like the adventure of living somewhere new so it’s a good and bad announcement.
In crochet news, this week’s new pattern is, I hope, a fun one! It’s another bag, a cute drawstring design that you can make in one night. All you need is yarn, a G hook, and some tapestry crochet knowledge. If you want to make this bag a nice long bag, like last week’s Valentine’s Heart Bag, repeat the pattern once more before heading onto the top section.

I’m also working a bunch of new designs, ones for the blog and for my Ravelry shop. I really hope you like them and I can’t wait to show them off.
Oh, I’m still really loving your #2018TSAP squares! I hope you’re enjoying seeing them as much as I am. I can’t wait for February’s square to be released (February 13th!)

Materials

Gauge

  • 18 scs x 16 rows = 4.5″

Terms/ stitches

  • RS: right side (side that faces out)Ravelry link
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet
  • BLO: back loop only

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st of the row.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up in 4 sections – the Bag, the Top, the Closing, and the Cord.
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets. The directions will only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses tells you how many single crochets to make.
  • In the example, the inactive yarn is carried behind the active. If this is confusing, you might want to check out this helpful Moogly video on tapestry.
  • You need to know how to work into the back loop only (BLO) for this pattern. At the end of the row, slip st into both loops, this will help keep your seam straight.
  • You will need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • If you don’t work this pattern in the back loop only, it might end up leaning. You can block the finished item to make it lean less.
  • In the photos: color A is gray (Loops and Threads Impeccable in Gray), color B is pink (Loops and Threads Impeccable in Arbor Rose), and color C is white (Loops and Threads Impeccable in White).

Tada, another fun bag option for Valentine’s Day or even as a nice cosmetic bag. 😀
