Chunky Granny Bag Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Chunky Granny Bag Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of  Posh Pooch Designs


I have gotten many requests for a more 
sturdier Shopping bag, lately.
I came up with a really easy and sturdy bag, 
that can hold up to heavier items.

The Bag can be made from a Bulky (5 or 6) yarn
 or made holding 2 strands of Med (4) together. 
It can be made from Cotton, Cotton bland or Acrylic yarns.
 It's really your preference and what you have in your
 yarn stash.


One is made using Chunky Caron Cakes and 
One us made using Yarn Bee Cotton XXL

Crochet Hook - N / 9.00MM
Yarn – Bulky (5) Cotton yarn (10. 5 oz. total)
            I used Yarn Bee Cotton XXL (Butter Cream, Celadon,  Lilac Hint)
            You may also use 2 strands held together of a Cotton (4)
Yarn Needle with a large eye
Large Button of Choice - 1.5 to 2 inches

Stitches:
Chain (ch)
Slip Stitch (slst)
Single Crochet (sc)
Double crochet (dc)

Size: 13 inches tall and 24 inches around, not counting the handle.

Notes:
Ch1 Does not Count as a sc.
Ch3 Counts as a dc
Rounds are joined to the ch 3 with a slst
When Changing colors, Ch3 After the Color Change
Color changes at R: 6 and R: 11

R: 1 – Ch 29, 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook,
1 sc in each ch across,

Turn Working down the opposite side of the Chain,
1 sc in each ch across, join to the 1st sc, ch 3

R: 2 – 1 dc in the next sc,
*Ch 1, Sk the next sc, 1 dc in the next 2 dc*

Slst to the 1st ch 1 sp, ch 3
(19 sets of 2 dc, 18 ch1)

R: 4 – R: 13 – Repeat R: 3

You will notice that the joins will move father round the bag for each row.

Add More rows if a longer bag is needed.

R: 14 – 1 dc in each dc and ch1 sp around, join, ch 1
(56 dc)

R: 15 – 1 sc in each sc around, join, tie off weave in your ends.
(56 sc)

 tie off weave in your ends.

Handle:
With 2 strands of your yarn, join yarn to one side of the top of the bag, 
making sure it is centered, ch 30, 
attach handle on the other side of the bag, with a slst,
slst in the next st, turn, ch1 and  sc back across the ch,
Join to the sc next to the beginning slst, tie off.
Weave in all your ends securely.

Button Loop - Cut a 10 inch piece of yarn, center and slide through the top
 of the bag to form a loop, make sure to tie to the inside of the bag, trim off extra yarn.
Line up button on the front of the bag and sew in place with matching yarn.

It's a perfect for shopping, going to the beach or pool,

We talked about Scarf lengths last week, 
but about infinity scarves and cowls?

The Cowl / Circle Scarf - Should be about 18 inches around, and about 24 inches if you want to wear it as a Hood / Snood.
It is a short scarf joined into a circle.

The Infinity Scarf/ Mobius Scarf 
 The scarf is the same length around as a regular scarf,
Only it is twisted and joined.
Click This Link for the Scarf Measurement  Chart - LINK



The Terms Cowl and Infinity Scarf have been used interchangeably. 
They both refer to a scarf that is joined.
The cowl usually means that the scarf is joined, by not twisted.
 An Infinity or Mobius Scarf has a
 twist to look similar to the infinity symbol.

COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (24) Scarf Lengths

COFFEE AND CROCHET WITH SARA (24)
With Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs
Scarf Lengths

How Long Should My Scarf Be?
It's Getting toward Winter and Christmas Gifts,
 and we need to know how long to make a
 scarf we are making.

These length are all Approximates, 
and are for the average person of this age or group.

Age          Length in Inches

3-5 years              36 
5-7 years              44         
8-10 years            50
Preteens               57
S Ladies               64
M Ladies              68
L Ladies               69
S Men                  67
M Men                 70
L Men                  75

I have also been told to make the scarf 
as long as the person is tall.
 For example - I am 5 "3",
so I would make a scarf for me that is 5' 3".
Sounds about right, if you know their height measurement.

Hug The World Pillow Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs



Hug The World Pillow 

Crochet Pattern 

By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs


I designed this little Hug The World Pillow
to be a cute and simple reminder to
take care of the earth.
No, the pillow is not exactly like the earth, 
but a representation.



When we all pitch in and help, even if
 it's just a little, 
we can make a big difference.

We kept the pattern simple so anyone can make it.
  It's all stitched with Double Crochet
 Stitches in rows, and changing colors.

Another reason I designed this pattern,
is I think we all could use a big hug.
