A Garden of Zinnias Bag - PA-211

from Nancy Brown-Designer
(4) Name: 'Crocheting : A Garden of Zinnias Bag - PA-211
A Garden of Zinnias Bag - PA-211 A Garden of Zinnias Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Advanced crochet skills

Pattern Description:

A Garden of Zinnias is created by popcorn stitch motifs that are joined as you work. The unique joining of the motifs gives the bag an interesting shape. After the motifs are joined, add a simple edging around the top, and finish with a handle and a crocheted button. The bag measures approx 28" in circumference (or around) at the widest part and approx 8" in depth from button to bottom of bag.

This pattern is designed for the Advanced Crocheter, as the joining of the motifs can be a little challenging. Instructions for this fabulous bag come in an easy to read, easy to understand pattern and are written in U. S. crochet terminology.

The model shown in the photograph is crocheted in "Everyday", a worsted weight yarn, using a U.S. size H crochet hook. "Everyday" is a wonderful 100% acrylic yarn that is durable and affordable and comes in myriad of fashion colors. For more information or to purchase this yarn, please contact Premier Yarns.

Nancy Brown is the author of the best-selling books, Crochet a Dozen Hats and The Crocheter's Companion.
