Lately, I’ve found myself becoming more and more obsessed with color blocking.  It looks so modern and is a great way for me to combine colors in my patterns.

Since I’ve been on the color block bandwagon, I was inspired to make this adorable Color Block Bag. I absolutely love making accessories because they’re the perfect way to punch up any outfit, and what better way to combine my love of color and accessories than with this little bag?

This bag is the perfect size for an everyday bag.  It’s small and convenient to carry around, while still being roomy enough to fit all of your essentials.  I’ve pretty much replaced my crossbody bag with this one as of late.

I chose a soft, summery yellow and paired with gray gradients for my color blocking.  It reminds me of a bumble bee. I decided to use Cascade Ultra Pima yarn for this project because it’s a wonderfully soft cotton yarn that is very easy to work with and is a really great price point. And good news! I’ve partnered with local yarn stores to put together a kit for this pattern. Get The Kit Here.

Every kit includes the digital PDF pattern for the Fringe Cardigan, plus all of the yarn you need to bring this project to life. You can feel good about your purchase because you’re supporting a small business who is passionate about crochet. I love supporting other makers, and it’s great to be a part of such a supportive community. You can get the kit here. This is a great pattern to make with your kids or friends.  It’s an easy pattern that uses single crochet and the Suzette stitch for simplicity mixed with a gorgeous pop of texture.

FINISHING:

Fold the finished rectangle in half and seam up the two edges (we used the mattress stitch to join the edges of the bag).

Using color A, sew d-rings onto bag approx. ½” from the top of the bag.

Crochet 2 icords for each of the handles. Each handle should be 18” long or whatever length you prefer. Secure icord to d-ring using a double knot. If you’re unfamiliar with how to make an icord, check out this helpful tutorial here
