Tshirt Yarn Crossbody Bucket Bag
(Update: The bag is done and the pattern is available if you’d like to replicate the project.)
New tshirt yarn bag design in the works. The yarn is micro tshirt yarn by @bobilon_yarn in Olive. I’ll be working with a double-ended crochet hook to create a more secure stitch in 2 directions similar to how I made the blue mini tote the other day. Given the smaller size of this yarn, I’m going to start with a pre-made base to give the bag more structure. The base, hooks and yarn are linked in my bio.
Update on the bucket bag. Here’s the bag so far : I used a 2-way stitch with a double-sided crochet hook to make a strong secure stitch. Given the thinner width of this micro tshirt yarn, I modified the stitch slightly from the blue mini tote bag / basket I made for my daughter (see feed for the blue bag). I also used a pre-shaped base to give extra support and prevent the bottom from sagging. (The yarn, base and special hooks are linked in my bio.) The stitch is reminiscent of a full-stitch in Tunisian crochet or the Gobelin stitch in needlepoint. It gives a nice woven appearance with dominant vertical stitch. .
