Thank you for sharing your own pattern l'll try but different kind of wool I live in Colombia s.a. we can't find thin yarn here I'll get another one very similar

I'm making the bag and must have done something wrong. The bottom turned out huge so I took out 4 rows and started on the sides. I think it is still too big. Any suggestions? I'm thinking about tearing out some rows and making the bottom smaller. I don't know why it is so different from yours. Thanks!!


Thank you, I made this bag last weekend I'm so pleased with it


LOVE THIS PATTERN! Thank you for all your wonderful info. How do you attach the handles? I am having a hard time figuring this out for any pattern!


Delightful pattern for perfectly sized WIP carrier! I am going to make a couple of them as gifts for my hooking pals. Thank you for sharing!

Hi, this really is a lovely bag pattern and I really want to make so I have somewhere to keep my ever growing yarn supply, but I was hoping for some advice on what yarn to use. I can't seem to find any wool yarn that is equivalent to what you're using, and I was wondering do you think that using the Drops 100% cotton Aran yarn (http://www.woolwarehouse.co.uk/yarn/drops-love-you-5-all-colours) would make a good enough substitute??

Thanks so much!!


Just made my first crouchet bag.
Great pattern


Is there a print button for your pattern. Love the pattern but to keep going back and forth on the computer is somewhat put offish.. I find that with many of your patterns Please a print button would be great. Thank you.

Hi - I have started to crochet the bag (fairly new to crochet) but the round seems to be curling up rather than being flat - does anyone know what I may be doing wrong - many thanks.

Sally Beak

Please can you tell me where I find the pattern for the smaller bag which I saw on your blog last year.regards sally

sue andrews

Hi can you help when ur making the sides do u still chain 3 on each row?

Phyl beddall

Lovely bag l changed the top, made it a little less wide by making a pleat next to each strap. Plus I made the final. Row less bulky by. Leaving three stitches between the. Scalloped edging. It suits my need to have it as a beach bag love crochet my grandma taught me as a young girl. But find all these modern ideas so appealing to do. No


hiya quick question..new to crochet get confused with yarns etc..The bag above is gorgeous ccould I use the rico creative cotton?

justine Barrack

Lucy, I know you have probably been asked this a lot. But how many balls of aran weight yarn would I need to make this bag? Loving your work.


Love this bag and hope to try it soon. You have amazing designs. Thanks so much.


hao many days you can finished crochet bag?


how many days you can finish a crochet bag?




I would crochet in a tall narrow pocket to stash knitting needles/scissors/hooks etc in

Janet Skiles

Ah, Lucy! You are my heroine! There isn't anything that you have made that I don't absolutely love and this bag is no exception. Going to start one tonight. One for each of my grandchildren to use when they come spend the night...put their clothes in in it. AND one day I'm going to get my husband to buy one of your yarn packs for me to use. Always have wanted to try the yarn but for now I use Hobby Lobby yarn and am content! Also, one day I will be at Yarndale! Yes, I will! God bless you and your family!

Linda Midtlyng

How many balls of yarn will this bag hold. I see two different sizes


Love your patterns. I was inspired to make a bag and even though I took A's lazy way and didn't change colours every line : ) I was still thrilled with the result. Only learnt a couple of months ago but now taking every opportunity to crochet....getting obsessive....can this be cured lol?

Lin Moore

Thank you so much for such for a lovely, easy to follow pattern, being fairly new to crochet you have truly inspired me.
Need to check out more of your patterns, there's no stopping me now! :)

Melanie Almond
