After a smooth start for most of you it is time for part 2 of Peacock Tail Bag designed by Tatsiana from Lilla Bjorn Crochet. In this part the magic really starts to happen.

Video tutorials

The front and back parts are split into two videos to make it easier for you. I have also added markers to the description of the videos on YouTube so that you can easily jump to a specific round if you want to. You can find the video links for the front and back of the bag on my dedicated page here on my blog or on my YouTube channel.


Colorway

I am using Linen Soft in the following colors: 614 as that is my main color in addition to 622, 625, 626 and 627. I have used my colors for part 1 in the following way.

Round   Font  Back
8 627 – green 627 – green
9 626 – pink 626 – pink
10 622 – light green 622 – light green
11 627 – green 627 – green
12 622 – light green 622 – light green
13 614 – blue 614 – blue

It doesn’t matter how you place your colors on the back of your bag.  For the front of your bag color placement is more important to get the colors balanced. Make sure your two sides are still the same size after this part. If there is a little difference that is not a problem, but if it gets too much your bag is going to look a bit wonky when finished.

Joining the CAL

To join the CAL, join the Official CCC Social Group on Facebook that is hosting the project. To make this bag you will need 6 balls of Scheepjes Linen Soft yarn in 5 colors; for the main color of the bag you will need 2 balls and of the other 4 colors you will need 1 ball of each. There are two kits available that contain everything you need to make your bag; one in a Peacock colorway and the other in a Pastel colorway. Linen Soft is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/International), Paradise Fibers (US/CA) or your local Scheepjes stockist. I am using Linen Soft in the following colors: 2 balls of 614 as that is my main color, and 1 ball each of 622, 625, 626 and 627. In addition to the yarn you will need a bag handle, 2 30mm D-rings, an 18mm magnetic clasp, interfacing and fabric for the lining.
