Need a sturdy bag that's perfect for your style and your day-to-day? Look no further, because crochet is the perfect technique to achieve both! Join designer and instructor Karen Whooley in this online Craftsy class and learn how to crochet a bag with the features you love. You'll work from two simple but desirable patterns, using techniques you can mix and match for beautiful custom results. During class, Karen will share three eye-catching stitches you can substitute in and out with one another for variety. You'll also discover how to customize your bags with pockets, different handle styles and lovely embellishments. And all along the way, you'll find out how to use the magic ring technique, work a long chain cast-on and seam skillfully for a strong, stable bag.
The Mother Earth bag is the perfect size to take your next project on the road. This in-the-round bag starts with the magic ring technique to give your bag a solid foundation, then uses offset increases to keep the bottom round. Karen stabilizes the bottom to make sure your yarn won't stretch and sits flat.
