Hello, I've just purchased the wool to make this bag. Do you have a pdf of this pattern I could possibly use?
Thank you

Hi Lucy

I was all set to make this cute bag of your but I don't see a hook size if you could let me know I would be ever so thankful


Just wondering is the jolly chunky bag out of stock or discontinued? I’ve just finished the sweet pea cal and the lovely blooming cushion and I so wanted to do the bag but it’s not available when I click the link ? Any help would be appreciated.

I just bought this color pack from the wool warehouse but I can't get the pdf can you please email it to me.

thanks for all your beautiful bags and blankets (this is my 4 or 5 of your patterns)


Hi Lucy,

Just bought colour pack for Jolly Chunky Bag from Wool warehouse but my computer is refusing to download the pattern in pdf format. Is it possible for you to send it to me in this format please?

I'm working on the bag right now! I bought a blue chunky color pack from Wool Warehouse to make the bag. Love, love the blue colorway. Thank you for another great pattern. I'm still finishing my Moorland blanket. I'm thinking this will be a great bag to carry it around in while I'm finishing it. It's getting so much bigger!


I love this pattern, I have made it a couple of times but I tend to use two strands of dk used together instead of chunky. It works fab. Thanks so much for sharing I just love your patterns and your inspiration.

Just collected my chunky rainbow pack (all excited) to make big floppy bag. Realised this wool is for smaller bag. Can I return or can I add to quantity. Please assist. So disappointed sitting in textile class with nothing to do. Please help.


Got the pack in March and just getting round to making it now. Made the larger bag first and that one came out big enough to carry a baby in :-)) Gifted it to my daughter-in-law for her little people. This one is for me.
Love the colors and easy to follow instructions.
Thanks for sharing. It is very much appreciated.


I just got my pack and I'm so excited to start this! Couldn't believe how fast it got here! From UK to Australia in FIVE DAYS!!! I'll definitely be using Wool Warehouse more in the future! I'm hoping I'll have enough scraps to make a mini bag for my daughter. Thanks for your lovely blog and lovely patterns!


I'm having difficulty finding the 'printer-friendly' button on this article . . . can you help me?


Thank you for this lovely pattern, I am teaching myself to crochet, I have made a few small items, and now have almost finished this bag, ready to sew on handles and flowers, and will try a mini version of this bag next, for a two year old friend. Thanks for all the patterns you so generously allow others to use, the colours are gorgeous and your patterns are so easy to follow.

Could you fasten off and start the next row in a separate place as you do when doing granny square changes?

I am a beginner and am so looking forward to finishing this - just done the base. :) Love it and working in chunky is such fun. <3

I also need colour in my life and this is just awesome. X


I've just finished your bag! I love it!!! I want to use it as an everyday bag, so need to line it, is it easy to do? x

Kathleen Pick

Hello, have you ever lined one of these bags. If so, was it difficult? x


Dear Lucy I wish to purchase Jolly Chunky bag wool do you send the pattern along with same. I seen the pattern on the web site but I couldn't print it. as there was no icon for a printer I enjoy your post regards Margaret

I absolutely looove this bag! It's the cutest thing ever! I'm going to take a shot at making it in my own colors. It'll be my first time making a bag ever! Nervous & excited all at once...:)


My version of the Jolly Chunky Bag was just 3rd most clicked on Moogly.com's latest Hooking on Humpday! My little blog has never been so busy!

I made it as a Mothers' Day present for my mum and she loved it!

Thank you Lucy!



Hi Lucy,

Thank you for your wonderful tutorials and patterns! I've only been crocheting for a couple of months and yet find your posts so easy to understand. I've just finished the jolly chunky bag and it received loads of 'oohs' and 'aaahs' on its first outing at work today :-)
The raindrops cushion is already on my hook!
I'm sorry to ask this as you have probably answered this many times, but where would I stand with copyright ruling if I were to make others for sale?

Thanks very much.

Could you use worsted weight yarn for this?


Hi Lucy,
I'm half way through making this bag, although I'm making it a bit bigger for a handbag. How would I go about making a closure for it? I was thinking of a tab similar size to the straps that attaches to the bag by a button? Would this be possible? I'm not very good at making patterns.
