By day, I'm a mild-mannered museum worker, laboring for truth, justice, and item-level location tracking. By night, I'm an obsessive crocheter who falls asleep thinking about charts and colorways and stripe patterns.
When I first started crocheting, I spent a lot of time buying into the myths about what crochet could and couldn't do (and worse, about what I couldn't and couldn't do). Several uninspired scarves and a disastrous ripple afghan later, I decided that was a boring attitude to take, and I'd have a lot more fun (and produce better work) if I just made what I wanted to make and figured it out as I went along. Several years down the road, I now love crochet more than ever, and I'm so excited to be along for the ride as it goes in new and interesting directions.
My rock band will be called the Yarn-Bombing Hooligans. I don't expect that I will survive the zombie apocalypse.
This bag should fit a standard size yoga mat. The finished measurements are above, but note that the bag will have some stretch. Instructions for adjusting the finished size of the bag are included with the pattern.
This pattern can easily be completed with one skein of yarn, and the mesh sections mean it works up very quickly.
The pattern is written using standard American English terminology and abbreviations and illustrated with several photos.
You're welcome to sell what you make from this pattern, though I would appreciate credit as the pattern designer. You may NOT sell, copy, or otherwise redistribute the pattern itself, in either electronic or hard-copy form.
*NOTE: the previous version of this pattern had a mistake in the measurements. The finished circumference of the bag should be approx. 13 1/2" (34.3 cm). When the bag is laid flat, it measures approx. 4" (10.2 cm) across. The pdf has been updated to reflect this. I'm sorry for any confusion!
