Grab and Go Bag

Grab and Go Bag

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic familiarity with entrelac
  • Crochet Provisional Cast-on

Pattern Description:

This is a fabulous entrelac project that really shows off the beauty of hand-dyed yarns and is one of my most used bags. It is important to note that this project uses a few special techniques in the construction of the purse which are not typically found in entrelac designs. This project is designed for the entrelac knitter looking to push the limits of traditional entrelac design.
