Crochet the Rising Tides Bag, a design by Mikey. Using Caron Cotton Cakes, colour shown is called Nested Blues. Inspired by the Bay of Fundy as it’s just around the corner from my home. The tide goes up and down between 40 – 60 feet every 13 hour cycles. It’s so remarkable. The amount of water moving is mind boggling.

My bag represents the Bay of Fundy Tidal Cycle. With the browns showing the base of the ocean floor exposed by low tide then rising into the majestic blues during high tide.

The Chevron illusion in this design. Though it appears we are going up and down for the chevrons, those are trebles overlaying in front every other round. So it’s the chevron look without the frustration. The bag is solid and I believe doesn’t need to be lined as the stitches are tight.
