So this was my first "real" crochet project and I am super proud of it. This bag is the first project that I have finished since starting to learn how to crochet. Of course I didn't make the little flowers, as that is still a little beyond my skills, but the rest was all me (and a pattern).



And the picture my swap partner took, this shows off the colors of the yarn.


C&C appreciated.

Now.. I am also having a problem. I really want to learn how to crochet those cute little amigurumi but I can not for the life of me figure out the magic circle and crocheting in the round. Any help would be much appreciated!!

I will do personal swaps. Cheesy
I have a few skeins of Caron Simply Soft I would love to supply swap with anyone for other types of yarn, I am finding the yarn a tad hard to work with.

Have you tried the tutorials on about.com.  They come up if you google eg. 'magic circle crochet how to'.  That's how I worked out the magic circle.

I love the colours of the yarn you picked.  The pattern on the bag is cool too.

Thanks, I'll have to look those up. I've found a few video's on YouTube .. and have a book or two, but I just don't think I am doing it right.

Is ordinary... with a little extra.

When you start a round, you'll have to "double" the number of stitches. . . but then there's the variables for what kind of stitch you're doing and whether or not you want it ruffly or not. The best I can give is get a good crochet book (I prefer the stitch books, not project books) that also uses the symbols instead of just text. I had a hard time when it was only text, but following symbols made it MUCH easier. The other bit of advice is practice, practice, practice! Trial and error. The great thing with crochet is you can always "rip it back" if it's not working out. :-)

Best of wishes.

Cute bag, by the way.
