WHAT IS IT?
A funky crochet pattern for a colourful pompom shoulder bag made using our pure cotton Double Top DK yarn.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
Double Top is a DK weight cotton available in a bright palette of zingy shades, plus darker contrasting hues. Why not mix and match clashing colours to create a funky bag or choose a subtle combination? The bobbles add a cute detail and lots of movement and fun!
This hippy chic shoulder bag is perfect for the summer, and as crochet is bang on trend all you festival goers out there can tailor your bag to suit your individual style.
You can use most double knitting yarns for this pattern, just crochet a tension square first to check your gauge if using an alternative.
WHY SHOULD I BUY IT?
Designed exclusively for our Double Top cotton by Grandma Jo at the spannerworks you know it will look fabulous! And as you'll be downloading you'll get the pattern immediately. Jo's patterns are illustrated throughout with both wordy instructions, a crochet chart of symbols and photos as she goes along, so it's really clear to follow her patterns.
