Notes

The bag idea was originally starting from a Lion Brand free pattern.

Changes:

  • I used a completely different yarn (wool instead of cotton/linen) and colours (mine is a strawberry red and green). Some sections of the bag have a “sheepy” effect due to the boucle yarn used.

  • Totally changed the position of the handle: in the Lion Brand pattern the handle axis would not be aligned to the bag axis, but rather have a rotation of 90 degrees. I didn’t like this, so I changed the BO part to be placed along the front and back section of the bag, and the handles grow out of the bag left and right sides. You may want to look at my pic to get a clearer idea :)

  • I also changed the number of stitches for the width and slightly shortened the handle.

  • Added a strawberry-themed ribbon (pass through)

  • Adding crochet leaves loosely based on this free pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/lord-of-the-rings... see my project: http://ravel.me/ItWasJudith/lotrilc
