Wait, Is That Really An FO?
Remember that uber-cheap 100% linen yarn I got during the Ogden yarn crawl:
Well, I put this to good use on it:
And came up with this:
Yes, it's crocheted and, yes, it's fabulous. I used to own a bunch of these bags that I brought with me to the grocery store but one-by-one I misplaced them. When I discovered the $1.00-a-ball linen yarn, I got my heart set on making a replacement. I decided to search for a crochet pattern since I knew it would be a hell of a lot faster to crochet it than to knit it. Thanks to Crochet Pattern Central, I found the perfect pattern here.
I made the smaller version and it's not quite as large as the one described in the pattern, but it's plenty big. Here's what the bag looked like with the contents next to it:
Kinda unbelievable that it could stretch enough to accommodate all that yarn, but it does and without any problem.
Thanks, Natalie, for a great pattern.
