Color block crochet tote

crochet summer toteLiving in Belgium, you can never know how much real summer you would actually have 🙂 When you crochet something summery, you really want to finish it as early as possible, so that you manage to use it. Lucky us, we are having quite a lot of sun these days and the forecast still looks good! This two color tote is perfect for going to the beach or to the market or, as its new owner said, for bringing lunch to the office 😉

It is made of some 300gr of quite sturdy synthetic yarn, and crocheted with a size 3 hook. The pattern is free and can be downloaded at mica makes. I used the same yarn to make a few other bags. Check them out here, here, here and here 🙂

Less is more zpagetti bag

simple zpagetti bagSometimes you don’t need a very elaborated pattern to crochet something cute. It was a present for a friend, and, yes, I’ve seen her wearing it 😀

This bag is crocheted around only with the single crochet stitch. It is a great project for beginners – it will get you hooked! 😉

I used my favorite Zpagetti yarn in light jeans and wooden handles. All from Hoooked. Other projects made from the same yarn can be found here and here.
