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 Brava Minis

WeCrochet has provided all the lovely Knit Picks yarns for these bag designs. For this bag, we’ll be using Brava Minis. This is the same Brava yarn we know and love, but in mini skeins of only 25g each. Such small skeins are wonderful for making multi-colored projects, without leaving a lot of leftovers or waste.

Our 2nd bag of the year will feature tapestry crochet colorwork in 5 fun colors, perfect for spring!

Bag #2 Materials List

  • Yarn: Knit Picks Brava Minis 100% acrylic, worsted weight yarn (54 yds / 25 g per skein), 1 skein each of:
    • #29409 Custard
    • #29414 Fairy Tale
    • #29419 Lady Slipper
    • #29420 Marina
    • #29401 Celestial
  • Hook: Size H / 5mm hook or size needed to match gauge
  • Notions:
    • Yarn needle
    • Stitch marker or scrap of yarn to use as a running stitch marker
    • Cord lock for drawstring (optional)
    • 6-inch flat circle of stiff plastic or cardboard – something like plastic mesh, a tupperware lid, or a circle cut out of a cardboard box. (optional)
A 6 inch circle cut out of cardboard

Gauge:

17 sc x 16 rows = 4 inches.

The first section of the pattern can be used as a gauge swatch.

Important! This pattern uses almost every bit of the yarn listed, so err on the side of being too tight when measuring gauge. If your gauge is even a little bit too loose, you will likely run out of yarn (particularly the Celestial color). If your gauge matches, or is a bit too tight, you’ll be fine.

Bag #2 Pattern

The pattern for bag #2 will be available on March 15th, 2022. Check back here after that date for the link, or see the main Bag Along CAL post for the full schedule.
