Peacock Tail Bag CAL: Part 5

You know what? I almost forgot it’s Wednesday today and I should publish Part 5 of the Peacock Tail Bag CAL for you. I checked my e-mail box in the morning and saw files with translations, and I almost had a heart attack! But luckily there were still 2 hours to prepare everything, so here it is!! If it’s first time you hear about this CAL – please, check general information HERE and also Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 and Part 4.

I have a good excuse for having bad memory though. Yesterday I returned from Sweden, where I spent almost 5 days – all of them sitting by the sea for long-long hours. Totally switched off. I thank you very much for support and lovely comments you gave me last week. They helped me a lot. Shortly after Part 4 was published, I packed my suitcase, left my husband with a kid and a dog and went to Malmö. You might know I have a very special relation with this place, and it already became a tradition to come there every year in late August-early September. I will for sure tell you more about my trip. But now it’s probably better to come back to the CAL.

Important Notes


1. Yardages and Colors. Today’s part is final before the bag will be joined and put together. So after you finish Part 5 you will know exactly the size of your bag. If your gauge was off and you put back part aside for a while to see how much yarn in each shade will be left, now you can finish both front and back. You should have plenty of C4 and C6 left – and you will use it for the band next week.

2. Special techniques. You will work with short rows on this part – please, be careful when you count the stitches to place 1st stitch of every row correctly. You will attach new yarn by simply pulling a loop in indicated stitch and making ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch). And each row will be finished with a slip stitch.Please, use “modified clusters” again. Tutorial is HERE.

3. Shape and “cupping”. On this part both your back and front will start “cupping” at the bottom. Don’t worry – this is on purpose: to shape the bag’s bottom nicely.

4. Wings and symmetry. You may have already noticed, that wings of you bag are not 100% symmetrical. I tried very hard to bring them to exactly the same shape. But because all the rows are worked on the right side, a turning effect appears, and it was very difficult to get rid of it, and to keep pattern symmetrical at the same time. After you finish part 5, please, try to block both parts to almost the same shape (so that they match nicely when put together with wrong sides). It will NOT work at 100%. But don’t worry. After the band is added, the shape should work itself out.

5. Social Media. Don't forget to share your creations on Instagram and Pinterest. Please use the tag #PeacockTailBagCAL.

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*.

Row 33. Change to yarn C4 (C6). Begin with standing hdc in 1st hdc of row 25.
Note: always make hdc in the same st where yarn was attached, and next hdc in next sc – on one side. Make hdc in last sc of each row and then in the same st of previous row where sl st was made (placing hdc after sl st) – on the other side.

Hdc in 145 sts, fasten off. (145)

After this row your piece should measure 29cm (11 ½”) from top to bottom.
It may happen that your amount of stitches will differ a bit. This is not critical at all. You will only need to take it into consideration while joining front and back parts together. And if the number of stitches differs on both parts – you will need to make several decreases evenly.

  4. Hi Tatsiana I am so glad you had a lovely few days in Malmo just sitting by the sea. I hope that you are feeling inspired and your soul is calmed :) Thank you so much for the hard work you put into your designs and this lovely bag - I have already ordered some more yarn to make another and one of those wonderful straps you found.
