This shawl is named after my Aunt Linda. She has always inspired me to have a love for yarn and something about designing this shawl reminded me of her! My happy place is using beautiful yarn and keeping my hands busy…getting lost in the rhythm of my needles. The pattern is easy to use with multiple colors too, if you have fingering weight yarn laying around! Bind off with a pop of color for a dramatic look!

This super simple bag is worked using Tapestry crochet colorwork. It is constructed continuously in the round so you won’t have an obvious seam region.
The bag is made as one long tube, then folded to form a flap. The button closure is optional.
This bag can transition from a cross-body bag with a long strap, or you can tie a knot in the strap to use it as a regular handbag (or make a shorter strap to keep it as a regular handbag - the choice is yours!)
In my example, color A is mustard, color B is white, and color C is gray.
For all sc’s on main bag, work over the two strands of yarn for the colors you are not currently using. Color changes always happen at the last step of the stitch before the new color. So for a switch from color A to color B, the stitch before color B would look like this - with A, insert hook in stitch, yo and pull up a loop, switch to color B and pull both through both loops on hook.
When you change color, check the tension of your yarn strands to make sure there is not too much slack as you start with a new color.
Size: Final measurements for the bag are approximately 8” wide and 12” long (before folding for flap)
