I made this last Autumn from 3 balls of Jaeger Matchmaker I think, It was one of my first completed crocheted things. Apart from having to replace a few pom-poms it has lasted much better than I thought a bag made from wool would.  Smiley





Tutorial:

Stitch pattern
Blackberry Salad Stitch (The Harmony Guide to Crochet Stitches, Volume one, p42)

I worked the following stitch pattern making a rectangle 52 tr across and 50 rows long, which using 3 balls of Jaeger Matchmaker and a 3mm hook (I think) made a bag 28 cm across (widest) and 18 ch high.

I worked two rows in each colour:

Ch multiple of 4 st + 3
1st row (right side): Miss 3ch (count as 1tr), 1tr into each ch to end, turn.
2nd row: 1ch, 1dc into each of the first 2 sts, *work tr5tog into next st, 1dc into each of next 3 sts; rep from * to last 3 sts, work tr5tog into next st, 1dc into each of last 2 sts (including top of tch), turn.
3rd row: 3ch (count as 1tr), miss first st, 1tr into each st to end, miss tch, turn.
4th row: 1ch, 1dc into each of first 4 sts, *work tr5tog into next st, 1dc into each of next 3 sts; rep from * ending 1dc into top of tch, turn.
5th row: As 3rd row.
Rep 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th rows.

My craptacular diagram to show how to shape and assemble this into a bag:


Oh, and I cut the excess crochet fabric that was pleated to make it less bulky (obviously shaping it would make more sense but I wasn't sure how big i wanted it to be). If anyone attempts this please post pictures, I would love to see what it looks like done in other wool + colours  Grin

I love this!  I like the subtle color combination.  I started to make a bobble shawl last night, but my bobbles kept coming out flat.  Doh!

A really original idea,  and a lovely colour combination. It is a very well-made and beautiful bag.

WOW!!! AMAZING!!
I am thouroughly impressed with your work on this bag!

How many sts do you use per bobble?  Did you make the attacheds pom-poms too?....they are so even, full and nice looking!
Happy Crocheting!

Why thankyou Smiley. I used 5 tr sts per bobble, and I did make the pom-poms, they were a little neater than they look now after a year of wear tho. The back is also done in bobble sts, and I added darts to make it more shapley.

When the night has been to lonely, and the road has been to long, and you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong, just remember, in the winter, beneath the bitter snows, lies the seed, that with the sun's love, in the spring, becomes the rose. <3

I love your bag, thank you for the instructions. I've been wanting to make some pom poms for weeks, but it seemed silly to do so without a reason.

This is beautiful. I love bobbles. I've never been good at making them though. Thanks for the tut. Do you think this will look nice in a solid color?

looky! my attempt!  Cheesy
I still need to find time (and the willing) to make pompoms.. and i didn't sew up the lines on the top.. didn't seem like this bag wanted it! I did put snaps on so I guess that will have to do..  Grin

Argh I have been without Crafster for a month!!! Cry I love your version Red Alibi, it looks great in those colours and I dont really think yours needs pompoms, being that shape it looks great as it is.
