I will not overload with lots of information today. I suppose that if you completed Part 1 you have also read all the important notes. But for today’s part there is something more you need to know and keep in mind.

Add this pattern to your Ravelry queue!

Part 3 can be found HERE.

Important Notes:


  1. !!! I have noticed that some of you decided to make overlay design for both front and back... Please, DON'T do that!!! The pattern is written in mirror way  - for front and back to match in the end. If you make two fronts - they will not match each other in shape!!!
  2. PLEASE, keep your gauge correct on this and next parts. If you are using ready kits you can run out of certain shades if your bag is turning out to be bigger. If it happens, please, take a smaller hook or try to crochet tighter.
  3. This part (and all the rest) is crocheted in rows on the right side. And all the rows are started with standing hdc. There are several ways of making them, but I would recommend to begin with a slip knot. It’s important because next rows will either begin in 1st or 2nd hdc, and if you have a slip knot in the beginning, then it is very easy to identify very first stitch. Esther from It’s All In A Nutshell has a video tutorial on this (HERE).
  4. Note, that some rows are started in 1st stitch, and some of them - in 2nd stitch. Please, be attentive and careful about that.
  5. If you prefer to weave in yarn tails “as-you-go”, please note that the edges will look neat if before weaving you unweave slip knots in the beginning of each row.
  6. Except of front post stitches (which should be made to the height of working round – as in Part 1) you will be making clusters today. Or to be more precise – treble crochet 4 together. But instead of usual clusters I used “modified” in the pattern. Please, check THIS tutorial to see how they should be attached correctly.
  7. If you are using kits – the color way for Deep and Pastel versions are not the same on some rows.
Just a small remind. I am using Linen Soft yarn by Scheepjes and 2.75mm (С) Clover Soft Touch hook*. Linen Soft is available for purchase via Wool Warehouse HERE* (international shipping), Paradise Fibers (US) HERE* or in your local Scheepjes shop. Separate bag handles, magnetic clasps and D-rings are available via Wool Warehouse HERE*.

And seems like this is everything I wanted to draw your attention to. Let’s jump to Part 2 now!

  3. Hi Tatsiana - on round 13 for the Pastel Bag the colour for the front is C6 and the colour for the back is C10. Are they supposed to be the same and if so which colour? Thanks, Debbie xx

    1. Hi Debbie!

      Colorway for front and back, and also for Deep and Pastel versions is not the same. :)

  4. I am doing the back on part two but I don't get the amount of stitches right. If I have 84 stitches from the previous row and are crocheting in 82 of them I will have one left, is that right?

    ReplyDelete

    1. you should begin in 2nd hdc. Then after you make 82 hdc you will have only 1 stitch left :)

      Delete
    2. Thank you for the quick answer. So I should have one stitch left that I wont be crocheting in?

      Delete
    3. No, if you follow instructions, you should make 2hdc in last stitch. Are we taking about row 11? you should have 84 sts in total: 82 sts+2hdc in last st.

      Delete
  5. Oh sorry, I forgot to write, it's row 12 I'm talking about.

    1. Hi Lina! Please, follow the instructions. You should not have any stitches left on rnd 12. If you get wrong stitch count - please, check the video. You probably misread instructions...

      Delete
    2. Hi again. Now I looked at the instructions again. I was so sure of that I should do 2 hdc in the last stitch and not hdc in the last 2 stitches. I guess I was to tired yesterday. :) The video made me realise my mistake.
