Round Crochet Bag with Tassel Pattern

Round Crochet Bag with Tassel Pattern

We’re ultra excited to share this bag with you. We wanted to design something you could take along with you to lunch with your girlfriends, or to a night out on the town. It quickly became a favorite design – and we want to take it everywhere.

You’ll need to grab three skeins of yarn in your favorite color, and get crocheting. You can pick whatever color matches what you wear most. Classic black? A complimentary tone?

You’ll be working in magic rings. If you’ve never used them before, well, they’re just as fun as they sound. Learn this new skill if you’ve never crocheted using magic rings before, or continue to perfect an old skill. At the end, you’ll have a practical, gorgeous bag to add to your collection.

Slide needle under the yarn on the cardboard, and tie a loose knot with the yarn threaded on the needle. Cut the bottom of the yarn on the cardboard, then tighten the knot at the top. Wrap the yarn on the needle securely around the tassel, about 1” down. Pull snugly, then secure with a knot. Pull up through top to use to attach to chain. Weave ends in, pulling any long tails down in to blend in with tassel.

Ocean Swell Mobius Wrap Crochet Pattern

| Crafts & DIY, Crochet

Ocean Swell Mobius Wrap Crochet Pattern - Wear it as a shawl. Throw it on as a scarf. #crochetpattern #crochetwrap #crochetlove #crochetOcean Swell Mobius Wrap Crochet Pattern

We love a piece that we can wear many different ways. That’s exactly what the ocean swell Mobius wrap is. Wear it as a shawl. Throw it on as a scarf. Let it drape down over a favorite shirt, and even style it off the shoulder. It’s all up to you to ride the wave.

Use the Suzette stitch to get this beautiful textured pattern that hangs easily and looks amazing, too. Pair this look with jeans and a casual necklace to dress it down, wrap it up as a scarf to keep you warm, or even layer it over a dress for a more upscale occasion.

We kept the color scheme blue because we were feeling the beach vibe, but you can feel where the water takes you when it comes to choosing a color. Any two complementary colors will even out the look of this wrap nicely. We can’t wait for you to wear it, so we also can’t wait for you to start.

When you’ve finished your wrap, let us know how it looks by taking a picture and sharing it. From the color, you picked down to the yarn you chose (did you check out the selection the Knitting Tree has available?) we want to know it all. Half the fun is getting to share what you’ve created. And part of that other half is getting to wear it around while strutting your stuff.
