I saw this bag at the Coats and Clark website under their free crochet patterns section:

... And I fell in lust. :D

I love the color changes, and how the dots look like little hearts. This is a challenging project for me--I hate tedious construction. But I love it so much that I'm willing to try it. :D

The first part to make is the base. This is what I've got so far:

Tres cute, right? Wait till you see the back, though:

It looks like a houndstooth pattern drawn by a kid. Or a houndstooth pattern made by a hound with his tooth. :|

This is my first time doing colorwork, and I'm afraid I'm doing it wrong... :( Hope it's supposed to look like this.

P.S. Yes, that's my spankin' new glow in the dark crochet hook! Found it in CraftWorld Megamall. Oh, and you can get the free pattern for the bag here:


  1. The front looks seems to be working out nicely, cute bag! Are you using RedHeart acrylic yarn? Does the glow-in-the-dark hook actually help you crochet in the dark?...hehe

  2. Hey Ms. Mimi! Yup, using Red Heart.

    I actually tried crocheting in the dark but of course I would need glow in the dark yarn for that, too. :D It does help me see when there is poor light, or if my hands put a shadow over the hook and yarn.


What do you think? :)
