How is your overlay crochet bag coming along? I know mine is doing very well and this week we are adding even more detail to an already beautiful bag. In Part 4 of Peacock Tail Bag designed by Tatsiana from Lilla Bjorn Crochet we are making lots more texture and fun color effects. On Tatsiana’s blog you can find the original US pattern and many translations.
Also for this part I have split the front and back parts into two videos and 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.
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 4 in the following way.
|20||627 – green||614 – blue|
|21||626 – pink||625 – purple|
|22||625 – purple||626 – pink|
|23||622 – light green||627 – green|
|24||614 – blue||622 – light green|
|25||626 – pink||627 – green|
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.
Next week we continue with the our bag when we will be making the last details before we join the whole thing together in part 6. Hope to see you next week for part 5.
