I’ve just finished this one for a special order and I was desperately sad to see it go. It was definitely one of my favorite projects to date; so much so that I’ve ordered more yarn to make one for myself.
For this bag I used Drops Big Merino, which is one of my favourite yarns. Its lovely and strong, with loads of stretch. It’s the perfect hat yarn. I am perhaps a little biased towards merino, growing up on a sheep farm with a wool classer for a father. Wool is definitely in my DNA.
I found the original, free pattern here: http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet-bag.html
