Today I have to introduce to you the Puff Showcase Tote Bag. I LOVE texture, and this bag screams texture from the mountaintop. I used FIVE different puff stitches, separated by lines of post stitches, keeping it orderly while still showing off how special each stitch is!
I used the Sideways Puff, what I’m calling the Star Puff, and another that I’m calling the Sunrise Puff. I’ve given extensive picture instruction for the Star Puff in the PDF, since that’s the most complicated, and written instruction for all the other puffs. As always, my picture instructions are clear and concise, but you will need a basic understanding of the usual crochet stitches: Single Crochet, Double Crochet, Half-Double Crochet, Slip Stitches, and Chains. I also explain how to do Post Stitches, if that is new to you.
Before you start, you’ll need a your yarn and a hook:
320 yards Caron Cotton Cakes yarn. I used Beachglass, and I love how the blues and neutral tones blend, but keep the bag elegant. You can use any kind of cotton yarn for this tote bag – or use a bunch of scrap yarns and make a rainbow tote!
6.5 mm hook. This is my favorite hook size to use for a Caron Cotton Cake tote bag. It keeps your stitches loose, giving you some much needed stretch, but still allows stitch definition. It’s especially nice for these puffs – you can get some nice long loops on them!
This will be my first paid pattern, and you can go to my Etsy shop and purchase it HERE.
