I give in, I’m addicted, I’m hooked!
It started off really slow, now I have a huge box full of wool, I am almost at the end of the cup cake blanket, have a woodland blanket waiting, calling me from it’s dark little box, I plan to make a wool bag first!
I bought you a coffee, thank you for saving my sanity’s during the world cup⚽️


Hi Lucy,
just wanted to say Thank you for your lovely blog. I really do appreciate all the time you take to explain so clearly-I have made this bag- my first big(ish) project and really enjoyed it EXCEPT- I am obviously doing something wrong when I start the new row- my bag has a funny lumpy bit in that area and you can see there is something not quite right along that "seam" if you have time please could you explain to me how to start a new row- I finish off the old row and tie on the new yarn to start the next but then not sure where to insert hook to pull through a loop because I am at the chain bit of the row above so there isn't really a stitch- I kind of made it up each time which is probably why it looks a bit wonky. Also I have even more respect for your amazing way with colour - I thought I would just work out the colours as I went and that didn't work out so well for me- I will stick to projects that you recommend yarn packs for in future! Thanks again Lucy _Regards Rachel

Trop trop beau si je s avais faire du crochet . Plus qu a trouvé Quelqu' un qui pourrais me le faire ? Merci


Hi Lucy, love this bag, can you tell me approximately how many balls of aran wool required to make it! Love your blog, full of inspiration! Thank you


I'm loving the bag so far. I've gotten about halfway up the sides and can't wait to add the ripple edge on the top!
Thanks for this pattern. I'm going to try your Woodland Blanket CAL as well. Love your site - it's very beautiful and full of helpful crochet information.

Thanks for sharing this pattern Lucy. I'm currently working on it, but in a colour block version (so pretty much use grey unto I run out/feel its done, then switch to mint). Just wondering if you have a recommended diameter in centimeters for the bag, to hold the 15 balls of one of your yarn packs? Sorry if you mentioned it and I've missed it!

Linda Woodman

Dear friend,
I'm delighted to read your useful blog. How refreshing it is to read something from someone who is happy. I'm not from the UK but I'm sure your pattern will not be as difficult as the Swedish one I've been working on. Will you have yarn bundles to purchase for the woodland autumn blanket?

Votre sac est vraiment très beau.
Connaitriez-vous quelqu'un qui pourrait le traduire en français SVP ?

J'en serais très heureuse.

Merci beaucoup

Hi Lucy
Another wonderful pattern to make. I always find something to make when I come to your site. Thank you for sharing all your exceptional work with us. I have started making from my scrap yarn. Should turn out beautiful like yours when it is done.


Thankyou for this pattern I'm already now for 5/1 /18

Thank you Lucy. I have just made a very shallow basket using this pattern, to put all our Autumn treasures in...conkers, acorns, leaves and pine cones. My little boy will love it.
I am getting rather addicted to your blog...I'm spending hours breastfeeding my baby and looking at all the beautiful things I will be able to make when I have more time on my hands. Sadly he doesn't like me crocheting while he feeds. I recently donated for the sunny log blanket which is taking me an age to make, and will do so again for this bag/basket pattern. I really hope most people donate as you so deserve it for your talent, cheerfulness and generosity. Thank you again. Xx

Hi Lucy, What a wonderful website this is, I adore all of the colors that you put together to make these masterpieces. I am currently making this bag to hold all my yarn in that I have got in the last few days.
How long did it take you make this bag? I am only on row 8 and it feels like I have been crocheting this bag forever. Mind you I have only learnt to crochet about a year ago.

wonder woman

hello lucy, well i just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your inspiration and wonderful tutorials, patterns and banta you kindly give us all. i dont know how you manage the comments on your site, i see you get a lot of erm... questions and wotnot that aren't really to do with the pattern/tutorial etc. i hope you enjoy lots of calming tea and know not everyone is quite so cheeky, lacking in ability to READ what it says and so on and that you are appreciated immensley in all you do. i am quite knew to crochet and love that i'm learning THROUGH you! books have availed me nothing in my knowledge to grow with it but your clear instructions and pics do teach me. thank you! truly and mahoosively! i shall indeed click on donate and enjoy a serene/soothing cup of whatever you fancy from Baldock, Hertfordshire. God bless. xx i do not know how you handle all the repeated questions and requests to add things, change things etc. hohum. xxx


Hi Lucy, thank you so much for this fun pattern. I only learned how to crochet two months ago and this was my third project and it turned out beautifully! I have just bought you a coffee through the donation link. I will certainly come back to make more of your patterns!

Natacha Oliveira

I can´t find your pattern for this bag...I would like so much to have it...


Sar Reed

How wide is the bottom before you start the sides?

Bernadette Remond

Un très joli sac ! merci pour les explications !

Diane Beeson

How much Aran wool would I require please?

Esme Render

Love the this pattern. My first attempt not quiet like yours. Have used up my wool that seems to keep growing. Next one will use recommended wool. But I loved making this bag it's a bit bigger then yours but will use for the storing of wool , as I am half way through your granny stripes blanket. Which is Really great to crochet. Makes me smile as again using colours in my stash. Husband not so happy as he said I had too much wool and since so far there are 18 different colours in my granny stripes I think he had a point. But as I said to him these are all for projects.
