The Sea, Sand, & Stone Bag

sand, sea, and stone bag

In sticking with my Aran Islands themed crochet designs, this over-the-shoulder bag is named Sea, Sand, and Stone; fundamental elements of nature that I interact with daily, and really inspire me artistically and beyond.

My creating rarely results in a work of art whose only purpose is aesthetic.  So few are those projects, that I could actually count them all on one hand.  As much as I enjoy them, and even have ideas for others, functionality always seems to win out in the end.

This bag’s design was inspired by a rug I made for our sitting room.  The all single crochet in variegated yarn is worked in a single continuous round for forty rows.  The base and top flap are each done in a long (rug-like) spiral.  The entire bag has a sewn in cotton lining with a roomy set-in zipper.

The pattern is repetitive and simple to make.  I wrote it down and would translate it into a proper pattern if anyone is interested in creating their own–just let me know.

But for now I am going to review the notes forwarded to me this week by a pattern testing friend, the lovely and talented Ms. Jill, who just completed my Aran Fisherman Tea Cozy design.  She did a brilliant job of it, don’t you think?!

    Ooh yes please, can you share the pattern for this bag? I’m a semi-competent crocheter (crochetist? Maybe. hooker? Surely not), and I’d love to give this a try, but I’m not good enough to just wing something like this without guidance.
