Neon Dreams bag

Why Neon Dreams?

Well isn’t it obvious? This is the neon bag literally of my dreams 😀

I love the look of a crochet cross-body bag, but wasn’t entirely sure on the colours I wanted to use, UNTIL Scheepjes launched their neon catonas. I knew instantly that it was a done deal.


Scheepjes Catona is a 100% mercerised cotton, fingering weight yarn, with balls available in 50g, 25g and teeny tiny 10g sizes.

Scheepjes has a full list of stockists on their website.

Wool Warehouse ships all over the world from the UK
Caro’s Atelier is my LYS and they also ship across Europe
LoveCrafts.com also stock most colours

The pattern is in progress, should be ready soon. Lots of fun parts and only a single ball of each colour. I also bought the plastic chain online, but I’ll provide alternative instructions for you so it can be 100% crochet.

Get your yarn ready, this one is going to be fun!


The Granny Smith Market Bag Free Pattern and Tutorial

Goodness, what a title to a blog post!

But it does mean that the pattern is here.  Once again I’ve created a handy PDF file that you can download from here safely.

I’ve also created a separate file with a photo tutorial of the special stitch repeat that this design uses.  It’s a really simple increase method, but is convoluted and makes me scratch my head and I came up with it!
