Can you believe it how time flies? Today we are doing the last part of the overlay design of our Peacock Tail bag before assembling it next week. But first there are some more lovely details that we are working out in part 5. As always, you can find the written pattern and many translations for Part 5 of Peacock Tail Bag on the designer’s blog, LillaBjorn Crochet.

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.

Video tutorials Peacock Tail Bag CAL part 3

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
14 625 – purple*
626 – pink*
626 – pink
15 614 – blue 627 – green
16 625 – purple 622 – light green
17 614 – blue 626 – pink
18 625 – purple 622 – light green
19 614 – blue 627 – green

*For row 14 on the front part of the bag I have used two colors. I wanted the bobbles to be a different color to the eye of the peacock tail. I carried the two colors at the same time and changed from purple to pink on the last pull-through of the stitch preceding the cluster. I changed back to purple with the last yarn-over of the cluster. This two-colorway is not shown in the video; in the video I use only one color for row 14. I frogged part 3 after making it because the colors were just not working for me. With the bobbles in pink I am happy with the look. It was just all too much purple otherwise.

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.

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.
