Granny Square Bag

I've just completed my bright and beautiful granny square bag.

It's made from a very large granny square - 60 cm in width.

It's lined and I bought some lovely plaited handles for it.

It's my new knitting bag and it's very roomy inside.

I based my bag on the free pattern from Pierrot Yarns.  You can see details of the pattern, via Ravelry, here.  The pattern calls for 4 ply yarn used double but I used double knitting weight yarn and a 3.5 mm hook which works out the same.

It's quite an easy project to make and the beauty of it is that you can really personalise your bag.  I might add some flowers and tassels but I think it probably looks jolly enough as it is.


  1. Looks good - nice and quick to make too :) x

  2. Janet, you are always such an inspiration to me. I have a friend who wants to learn to crochet and this would be a great starter project. And, of course, I can always use another crochet bag myself. Heh. It's gorgeous!
