What is the Bag Along CAL?

Every 2 months in 2022, I’ll release a new, free crochet pattern for a bag. The size, style, and type of bag will vary so that we can explore lots of different techniques.

Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky

WeCrochet has provided all the lovely Knit Picks yarns for these bag designs. For this bag, we’ll be using Wool of the Andes Bulky. This bulky weight yarn works up quickly, so it’s great for larger patterns. More importantly, the squishy wool felts beautifully!

Wool of the Andes yarn for bag 1

Since this will be a felted bag, it’s very important to use a good wool for felting. Wool of the Andes Bulky also comes in a superwash variety. It’s a beautiful yarn for all sorts of cozy projects, but be sure not to use it for this one, or your bag won’t felt!
