Another little sprang bag. This is done with cotton crochet yarn. 60 threads are being worked on this bag. The thick white and blue strings are used as spacers for the rows.





As the space gets tight I use this afghan crochet hook to work the yarn. This hook is longer than the average crochet hook and is very useful for this project.






The middle row gets a long thread to hold the shape of the bottom, then the sides are sewn up and knots are tied. bag is turned inside out to hide the knots. Double loops of single yarns are used to close the bag, making a less bulky top hem than a three strand braid would have.

There is five rows with Z twist, switch to 4 rows S twist, switch to 4 rows Z twist, close up the middle. I will definitely work this yarn again. These small bags will be handy for practicing different patterns.

Most of my sprang work right now is done on my way to work. I ride public transit (bus and train) so projects have to be small and portable. So the little cardboard frame works well. My sprang work really took off after getting a copy of Carol James "Sprang Unsprung"

You can read more about sprang at my blog. Search for Franco's Fiber Adventure.

Have a good day!
