It’s been a couple weeks since I’ve published anything, but I truly do have a good reason, I promise! I moved! Yes, that’s right, people. I moved AGAIN!

Why does she keep moving? Can’t she just settle somewhere?!

My thoughts exactly, friends. And this time, we are 99% certain we’re here to stay. Ok…maybe 99.9%. I don’t like saying that things are absolute, simply because anything can change, but I’m pretty certain Wyoming will be our home for the foreseeable future.

During this move, I wish I could say I did a bunch of crocheting. The reality is, however, that I didn’t crochet nearly as much as I’d hoped.

This beautiful bag did get put together these past couple weeks, though! And boy to I love it!

You’ll love the texture of this bag as it uses the lemon peel stitch just like a few previous designs such as Lemon Peel Baby Sandals, Spring Lavender Dishcloth, and Autumn Comfort Mug Cozy. It also has a beautiful heart and a braided strap. Both using blush yarn.

Pattern Notes:

  • Ch 1 will never count as a st.
    • However, the heart will have stitches worked into ch 1 spaces, so be sure to pay attention to this.
  • The bag is worked in a lemon peel stitch pattern. 
    • This is simply alternating sc with dc. 
    • All sc will be worked in dc.
    • All dc will be worked in sc.
  • If you’d like a shorter strap, reduce each cord to 100 ch. 
    • Likewise, if you’d like a longer crossover strap, increase each cord to 200 ch.
