Are you taking ordersfor the wool, for the week end bag to post out to australia

Christiane Klein

Hello Lucy, I was asked to put something chrochet in a big present-basket and it should go with the words "aktiv" and "colorfull". So I think your weekend-bag will be the thing I make. But I have so much Stylecraft Special DK in my stash.... I don´t want to order the chunky. Is there any way to use the DK? Maybe doublestranded? Please excuse if my english is bad, because I´m german.

You have the most beautiful crocheted items I have ever seen! You talent is truly a Gift from God!Just looking at your work makes my day! My Mom taught me crochet,knit, & embroider when I was 7 yes.old!I am so glad she did now I mostly just crochet,& you truly an inspiration to me! Thank You for you sharing your beautiful ART!💟


Dear Lucy, I love the weekend bags, and I am making the heatwave version.I got your yarn pack from Wool Warehouse. (One week from ordering to receiving the yarn in Denmark👍) I don't use a lot of acrylic yarn, but I like this Chunky Speicial by Stylecraft.
Would you ever design a clutch bag/ hand bag? With a zipper closing?
Love from LISE.

Lucy you've done it again - pulled me out of my doldrums and got me excited about crochet again. I'm about to order a pack… decisions decisions… as though I could probably SELL Stylecraft DK I have no chunky yarn at all.

I need some yarn colour in my life! And, let's face it - who DOESN'T need another bag in their life!

Ella Byron

Hi Michelle, you can get the magnetic closures from LittleFreckle.co.uk online store.

Derrrrh me!! I posted this comment on the wrong post....sorry Lucy :( Posting it again here where it should have been to begin with!

Hi Lucy,

I've just made your Jolly Chunky Bag in left-over DK Cosy colours...LOVE it!! I also posted a tutorial on how to make a lining for the bag, in case anyone would like to have a go at that. This is the post on my website.... http://www.craftylittlered.com/home/jolly-chunky-bag-with-lining-tutorial

I'm going to make another Jolly bag in another colourway. This is a brilliant project bag!

I've ordered two of the Weekend Bag kits and can't wait to start on them when they arrive :)

Hugs from Lynne in Aus xx


Lovely! The blues are my favorite.

G'day Lucy, Thanks for your great tutorials...so detailed! You know exactly the questions to answer and show us the little details that help make our little hooky projects brilliant. I just finished off a granny square woolly blanket with your linen stitch edging and it turned out really sweet. Thanks for being you Lucy! (BTW my 14 yo son wanted to learn to crochet so I taught him and he's making his first simple beanie. He loves it. His sister (who does NOT want to crochet) has asked for fingerless gloves! So that's next. One more hooky person in the world..Yay!) xxxxxx


Cute, cute bag! Love springtime!

Hi Lucy,
WOW!!! These bags are so pretty and useful. I like Heatwave the best but truly they are all just wonderful.
One project to add to my list for sure.

Angel Jem

I made my own, ages ago, and they are really useful bags. I love the variety of colours you can get in a bag and I'm glad that Stylecraft have introduced more colours to chunky and Aran!

Zoe - floral and feather

The perfect weekend bag as the colours are so happy too! I really love the heatwave combination in particular.

It's a lovely bag(s) Lucy! Nothing more satisfying as an idea coming to life. One of my first ever designs was a bag, something about a hooky bag that is just so fun. I agree, a smaller hook to make a tight fabric is best so it will hold up over time. Learned that one the hard way! lol I'm working on mandala hoops for a Niece's nursery(not as big as yours). Now I MUST make some for my craft room!xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Winwick Mum

I love these cheerful chunky bags, they're just the right size to carry around comfortably and they look great in the different colourways! xx


I am making one now. I bought three packs at Yarndale to make one each for my granddaughters for Christmas and then they will be filled with all sorts of little lovely things. Hooking up well and though not made in a weekend should finish the first in a couple of days.

Brenda Cupryna

the sea spray one is my favourite but they are all pretty. I am sock knitting and quilting at present so cant see me getting around to one for a while


Yay! I cannot wait to make this! Can you share where you got the sew-on magnetic closures?

Chel @ Sweetbriar Dreams

Oh the heatwave bag has the colours I adore, especially for autumn. The colours also give me an idea to make a crocheted basket for beside the fireplace (not real flame - health and safety!) to store my current projects. Brilliant as always Lucy :)

Brooklyn Murtaugh

Wow these bags are beautiful! My favorite is Heatwave, but Sea spray is a VERY close second.



Oh dear, another project to add to the list after I finish the cosy blanket and maybe some socks and then this bag or maybe another blanket and here in Sydney summer is quickly coming so I had better get a move on. Thank you so much for sharing.


Lucy, thank you SO MUCH! It's such a gorgeous bag and I can't wait to get into making some of them. I'll be making at least three as each of my daughters and I want one! You're the best and so generous with your patterns and talent. THNAK YOU!

Jenny Jones

absolutely brilliant:) LOVE them!
