Crocheted Libra Bag

The Libra is a bucket shaped bag worked from the bottom up using almost entirely variations of the single crochet stitch. The round base is made using the thick and durable waistcoat stitch, while the body uses a fun stitch pattern with a grid-like effect. The bag is closed with a drawstring at the top and the strap is added last.

Go for two solid, contrasting colors, or show off your creativity and create stripes or a gradient. Stop into the shop to see our fun gradient sample bag!

Instructor Bio: From Nancy - "My grandma was a master embroiderer and crocheter of lace edgings. She taught me at the age of 9 how to crochet. Since learning I have never not crocheted. I love trying new and intricate patterns or making things up on my own. I have done many baby blankets, sweaters, granny squares, dishcloths, scarves....  I have been crocheting 50+ years and have taught many others how to crochet."
