Everyone, including Lucy, said to go with it. So I did. But when I started getting closer to the top I thought the opening was going to be way too big and yarn would fall out of it. So I altered the pattern, henceforth, LuCindy yarn bag.
What I did was this... on the red stripe, the one with aqua below it and pink above it, I started decreasing. I crocheted three stitches together, one time. Then the next row up, I decreased twice. Next row up, decreased three times. I did this nine times, for nine rows, then just went back to double crocheting the last two rows.
and these flowers....I can't stop making them!
I'm shocked at how much yarn the bag holds. It actually holds all of the yarn and the afghan for the ripple afghan I started about a year ago. The problem is I'm afraid it's going to rip the bag as it's so heavy. Might not be a good bag for huge cotton yarn projects!
But wouldn't it be a very cool beach bag. Or smaller for a purse? I love it.
And I really want to start a new afghan with the yarn I bought last week, but I refuse. I am finishing this ripple afghan, and my granny square afghan, before I start another one.
But that doesn't mean I'm not going to do little projects here and there! I love quick little projects. And those flowers......fun.
