Pattern: Bryce Bag by Lakeside Loops
Hello! I just want to show you the lovely bag that I finished early this morning! Yes, it is hot of the hooks and I am already putting good use to it by wearing it today!
I used a 5mm crochet hook and two strands of yarn to hook this sturdy bag and lined it in plain black linen. This is the child sized bag, but I added a few extra rounds to make it a little longer. Once I lay my hands on a 10+ ply cotton, I will also make a striped version in the Adult size.
I used MoYa Yarn, a hand dyed organic cotton in a hight twist from South Africa. The excellent news is that this one of a kind yarn is available from stockists in The Netherlands, Germany, France, Russia, Namibia and Australia! If you enjoy texture, this yarn is a must try.
For contrast, the rope was hooked in a silver grey King Cole Bamboo Cotton. I also used 2 strands DK, but downsized to a 4mm hook.
The bag looks fantastic styled with a pure linen Kaftan style dress from Nu, Oxfords from Uterque, and neckpiece from Laardesign. I love the simplicity of the look and the natural fabrics are most suited to the hot and humid climate of the Middle East. No doubt I enjoy fashion! I keep my wardrobe small and minimalist though and can confess that I only have a grand total of 4 lipsticks in my make up bag. Can't make the same statement regarding my shoe obessession . . .
