    1. I thought it would be hard but it's mainly doubles and chains so quite straightforward x

  18. I love the colors. Did you post the pattern before, or is it something you made as you go, like I do sometimes.

  19. The pattern is from a book called Granny Chic but I have changed the top a little (more details about the book in the earlier post) x

  25. Amazing colors!!!
    Quick ques! do u think those handles strong enough to hold heavy stuffs?
    No offense meant :)

    1. The yarn is cotton and is very strong also the handles are just a continuation of the round - I just followed my doubles with a long chain and then reattached on the other side of the bag and then crochet back and forward on the new chain. Not sure if this makes sense but I didn't need to sew the straps on they were just incorporated into the crochet - so didn't have any joins or stitches which is where the weakness can be. So hope it will be very strong
