I should tell you something… I am coming through a very tough time these days. I can’t understand how the world can be so unfair and wrong. If only I could, I would just stay in a small circle of my family and friends, and with you – who support me and help me to keep designing. Last two days were extremely difficult and I was almost about to quit designing at all. But then I came to Instagram, and browsed latest posts. And saw your wonderful pictures of the Peacock Tail Bag, and read your lovely comments. Really… This vibrancy of colors and your love almost made me cry. Thank you very much for staying with me, for reading this blog and for supporting me.

Well… anyway. Here is what I wanted to tell you before we jump to Part 4.

Important Notes


1. Today’s part is critical for your bag’s width, because next part will be worked in short rows (and Part 6 will be only about joining and putting your bag together). We’ve discussed the importance of correct gauge already. But I was also asked about the kits and if interfacing and fabric will be enough for lining in case your bag is turning out to be bigger.

Well, if your bag will get not more than 48cm deep (which can hardly be possible), then the fabric is ok. You also have two pieces of interfacing (10cm x 40cm). If after Part 4 your bag is not wider (on the top, from side to side) than 37cm (14 ½ inches) than you are ok with interfacing, too.

2. Please, use the same techniques as for previous two parts, it means “modified clusters” and standing hdc for beginning of the rows. Just to remind you, the tutorials can be found HERE and HERE.

3. If you use Instagram and Pinterest, please, mark all your posts with #PeacockTailBagCAL so that I could find them, and love them.

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*.

If you have any questions, please, check in Official CCC Social group on Facebook or in my Ravelry group.

And (surprisingly) this is everything I wanted to tell you today! :)
Let’s begin!!

  5. I really understand your anguish about the world we live in. I am at a loss to understand how the people who commit awful atrocities go to bed and sleep each night. Just remember in your low times that you really do bring light and colour to that world and that many people;including myself love to open your page and see yet more beautiful crochet. It's your gift to be able to do that so never think of stopping.x
