The April addition to the Poetry in Yarn pattern line is now available! It’s the Free Spirit Tote.
I’m calling this the Free Spirit Tote because I didn’t have a plan when I started making this. I new it would be a bag, but that was it. I literally decided round by round what I wanted to do. It made me think of a free spirit, unconstrained by any boundaries.
So want more info? Here’s what the listing has to say:
The Free Spirit Tote will quickly become one of your favorite projects. The majority of the bag is done in single crochet with variations such as slip stitch embroidery and frequent color changes to make it anything but boring. The Free Spirit Tote is nice and roomy with button loops that go around the sides of the top to cinch in the opening and keep contents more secure. The small quantities of yarn required for each color make this a great project for all those leftover skeins hiding in your stash.
The pattern is available for only $5.95 and it includes crochet stitch diagrams. For all the details (materials list, finished measurements) and to purchase, click here.
The unofficial name of this project is the “Michele is Awesome Tote”. My friend Michele is awesome for many reasons, but in this case, it’s because she gave me her remnant yarn from a blanket she made.
