It’s hard to believe it’s nearly April, guys! I’ve been looking forward to April for months, though, since my first published crochet design is in the April issue of I Like Crochet Magazine. It’s called the Purple Haze Messenger Bag, and it’s compact and dense, perfect for lugging around your latest craft project, reading material, tablet, or all three!
I’m really proud of how practical, yet visually interesting the Purple Haze Messenger Bag turned out to be, and I really recommend trying it if you’re an advanced beginner or intermediate crocheter looking for a pattern to help broaden your construction horizons. :)
The latest issue of I Like Crochet is now available. Subscribe today to start receiving this bimonthly magazine on your iPad or Desktop. Put a spring in your step with over 30 fresh and fabulous patterns, including the Berry Sleeveless Sweater and the Triple Shell Shawl. Be lovely in lace with the Filet Lacy Shrug and the Ladylike Lace Arm Warmers and adorn yourself in fun, springtime accessories. Learn how to crochet a broomstick stitch and make a perfect-for-spring Spring Lace Infinity Scarf, or unwind with the Raindrop Lace Shawl, our next elemental shawl series feature. Plus, enjoy fantastic floral patterns, baby blankets and accessories, and a fun how-to tutorial on crocheting with wire.
Congratulations on publishing your pattern! I really like the texture of the bag and the way the panels switch around. It would be a very sturdy bag and I would feel okay putting an e-reader or books or crafts in it. I enjoy your blog and look forward to your knitting lessons for us newbies!
Have a lovely, hopefully warmer weekend!
