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.

Because a girl can’t have enough of them…

taupe crochet bag

Bags, of course!

This one is made of one my favorite yarns zpagetti, the same one I used for my rug. I guess one of the reasons is that it comes in a million of great colors and it works really really fast 🙂 It probably took me about an hour to crochet this bag. I have also reused a very cute flower decoration I had kept from an older bag.

For this bag I used the Zpagetti yarn in taupe, and the basis is of the pattern is the very simple single crochet stitch. Try it out!

Just a crochet rug

I’ve been dreaming of making a new rug for months. Crochet with such thick yarns is both hard and satisfying. My fingers hurt a bit, but then it worked soooo fast. In no time you can crochet something quite big! 🙂

I was inspired by many crocheters online who experiment with chunky/jumbo/mega crochet. Taking as basis one of the oldest pattern – “the granny square” – and making something new and modern was a perfect option for my new bed-side rug 🙂

I have used about 3 rolls of one of my favorite yarns, Zpagetti from Hoooked and a No. 12 crochet hook. The basic element is a classical granny square, connected to each other with a slip stitch row, while the edge is made of a round of double crochet stitches. I drew my inspiration from this gorgeous Granny Square Floor Rug.
