I made this bag for my friend pottermouth as part of a personal swap we did. This bag is HUGE! I'm really happy with how it turned out. It holds at least 20 skeins of yarn Smiley







And on my loveseat for size reference:



 I made it using this pattern from Attic24:

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

I pranced around the house like a giddy little girl when I opened this! It was immediately put to the test when I put my blanket project yarn skeins into it, and there's still room for a bento box and War and Peace.  Cheesy The hooking is unreal. How do you join so seamlessly?!!! I want to know!

Thank you so much....big love for my project bag in all its stripey pom pom goodness.

Haha! I am so happy you love it!  Grin

Thank you so much for the compliment. I always wanted to be a great hooker!!  Wink As for my joining technique, when I change colors I cut about a 6 inch tail and then pull my loop up and stick my new yarn into the loop and pull it to where the new tail is as old tail and then I pull down that old loop and double knot my yarns together. Then I stick my hook into the work under that knot and pull the new yarn through and then chain up. And I usually immediately crochet over both of those tails because it makes weaving in the ends so much more bearable. I hope that makes sense! Using that technique has made all the difference when using a bunch of different colors on one project.
