PATTERN DETAILS

About the pattern: This bag is fantastic for storing firewood logs and transporting them from your log store to your cosy front room fire. Notes: This pattern is worked from the bottom of the bag upwards. You will start by crocheting the circle for the base of the bag, increasing the number of stitches for each round to keep the circle flat. You will then stop the increases, which will create the walls of the log bag. The walls are worked in a continuous circle so as to avoid a joining line being visible on the side of the bag. There are methods to avoid having a joining line if working in the round, however I find that no matter how hard I try I always end up with some kind of line and so this method is easier if you want your basket to look more professional. This pattern is written using UK terminology. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Create a magic ring, although alternatives are provided in the pattern if you dont' know how to do this Dc = Double crochet (UK), or single crochet (US) Ch = Chain stitch GAUGE Tension: 10 dc stitches, 13 rows = 10cm by 10cm SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 33 cm high, 32 cm diameter of base circle SUGGESTED YARN 650 yards of Worsted weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Nutscene Jute Twine String 300m spool COLORWAY Natural jute

I love creating beautiful things! I began crocheting just over 2 years ago and have just started making my own designs and writing these down so I can share them. My other passion is lino printing. I attended a printmaking class earlier this year and although the class has stopped I want to keep on learning more.
