I called this bag “Peacock Tail” as its pattern and colors remind me of a peacock. I made the bag in two colorways: true peacock shades (deep version) and pastel palette. But you can absolutely come up with your own variant and create your bag in different shades.

Please, read all the details in my introductory blog post HERE. And feel free to join my Ravelry group HERE to get all the patterns and updates on time.

Peacock Tail Bag CAL will consist of 6 crochet parts and one more additional tutorial about how to sew fabric lining. This bag is made in overlay crochet technique with lots of front post stitches. The peacock pattern is only on the front, and back is crocheted with simple stripes made with hdc. The bag is finished up with tight crocheted band.

The pattern will be available on my blog for FREE. Every Wednesday a new part will be released together with a video tutorial kindly and exclusively made by Esther from It’s All In A Nutshell.

Level: Intermediate (front post stitches). But I believe that thanks to detailed photo-tutorial and video’s this pattern can be handled by Advanced (or Adventurous) beginners.

Materials: yarn in 5 shades, crochet hook, bag handle(s), magnetic clasp, fabric lining, scissors, tapestry needle to weave yarn tails in.

Gauge: After 6 rounds circle with double crochets measures 10cm (4”) in diameter.

Size: The size of the finished bag depends on the yarn and hook you use. My bag is approx. 39 cm (15 ½”) wide in widest place and 35 cm (13 ¾”) tall.
