I'm a knitter and has just recently learnt the basics of crochet.  Here's my 1st proper project.  I got the japanese scarf pattern from a friend, but decided to change it into a bag.  I though it looked japanese, so I call it the Japanese bag.

It looksk a little flimsy, I think I need to do lining...


Here's the closeup:

That is beautiful!  If you've just learned the basics of crochet & made that, then I'm screwed.  Usually when I see crochet projects they make me think of other people, but I'd like something like that for myself.  You did an amazing job.

You did a really beautiful job!  The yarn you used is gorgeous and the scarf pattern made a really unique purse.

Wow. That's great. It looks antique and AWSOME. I'd like to try that as a scarf also.

Thanks everyone for your comments.  I've just beginnign to learn to read japanese pattens and am still strugging very hard to read the english ones.  Maybe I should l start with some granny squares to familiarize myself.

The yarn that I use is call Magnum Mist.  I love the variegated pastel colors, cos it looks so sweet.

Just checked with my friend but she can't remember which book she got the pattern from.  Sorry...
