I love the creativity in this pattern. It looks interesting, and in a cute color it can easily blend into your decor. Or if it’s a gift for a kid, it would look fun in a brightly colored shade to stand out! I appreciated the thorough instructions in both the stitching and the assembly, and I’m very happy with my finished result.

This is a very simple pattern, in terms of stitching. Once you get the hang of the mesh stitch, it’s smooth and just flies off the hook! The genius of this pattern is in the actual layout. She does a really cool technique in shaping the shoulders, rather than simply decreasing for the neckline and leaving the sides boxy (which is also a look that I love and do in many of my own designs).
This pattern is very simple and I really enjoyed it! The back-loop stitches add some interest without losing the sturdiness of single crochet. Simple color-blocking adds even more visual pop. My mind is full of all the potential for this pattern, especially given how quickly it works up. You could make one the night before going on a trip, if you realize you don’t have a bag for your makeup essentials. Or can you imagine how cute this would be as a gift for a friend?
I really enjoyed all the small touches on this pattern. This is definitely a bag that no one else on the street is going to have! I can’t stop singing the praises of this pattern. It was fun, it was simple to understand, and it gave me a sturdy and adorable bag that I will be proudly carrying around all summer!
