Rhianna Bucket Bag

25 Jan

This crochet bucket bag is perfect for adding some appliques or other embelishments, like my Basic Crochet Flower or Simple 5 Petal Flower. Finished size is about 8 inches, so it’s quite a versatile little bag. Personally, I like to use one to store my makeup!

Rhianna Bucket Bag Crochet Pattern

All rows and rounds begin with a standard turning chain. All rounds are joined with a slip stitch. I use a tch of 1 for dc and 2 for tr. If you use a tch of 3 for your trebles, remember to count it as your first stitch instead of as a plain turning chain.

Size: 8 inches
Yardage: 60-65 yards
Needles: 8mm (US: L)
Yarn: super bulky

Rectangle Base

Make a foundation chain of 5. (This does not include your first turning chain.)

Rows 1-10: dc5

Leave yarn live and move on to shaping the sides.

Shaping the Sides

Rnd 1: pick up 30 dc sts around the rectangle’s edges by working 2dc, dc6, 2dc along the long edges and dc5 along the short edges [30 dc]
Rnd 2: work 2dc, dc8, 2dc along the long edges and dc5 along the short edges [34 dc]
Rnd 3: dc34
Rnds 4-8: tr34
Rnd 9: dc34
Rnd 10: *dc2tog, dc6, dc3tog, dc6; rep from * once to end [28 dc]

Assuming you began picking up stitches, in round 1, along a long side of the rectangle base, you will now need to slst4 to reach the corner of the bag. If you began picking up stitches along a short side of the rectangle, you should already be at a corner.

Adding the Handles

Rnd 11: *dc4, ch8, skip 6, dc4; rep from * once to end [16 dc & 16 ch]
Rnd 12: dc32 into sts & chains [32 dc]
Rnd 13: reverse direction and slst32

Fasten off and weave in ends.

Kirsty Crochet Doll

24 Jan

This 6 inch crochet doll features a removable dress, for added play value, and a defined scalp section for ease in attaching hair strands. The doll’s limbs are attached as you go – so there’s no need to sew anything on at the end, asides from facial features and hair.

Kirsty Crochet Doll

If you haven’t previously made any dolls, or other amigurumi critters with hair, you simply attach the strands the same way that you’d attach scarf fringing. Using a small crochet hook (or darning needle), pull the middle of a short length of yarn through the fabric – so you have a loop on one side and the 2 tail ends on the other. Pull the tail ends through the loop and give it a firm tug to secure. (If giving to a young child, you may additionally wish to secure the tail ends with a double knot.)

Kirsty Crochet Doll Pattern

All rounds begin with a standard turning chain and are joined with a slip stitch – except for the last round of the dress. (See pattern for further details.)
