It’s pattern release Monday again! This time, I have a special pattern for you. It’s a great stash buster and learning experience rolled into one design.
The pattern is called Mystery Sampler 20 Bag. The “mystery” isn’t that you are making a bag – it’s that the rounds are determined by a random number generator! There are 20 stitches patterns, from basic stitches such as single crochet up to more complex two-round patterns.
I used four different colors in each of my samples, however you can use just one color for a beautiful monochrome bag that would showcase the stitches or a different color for each round for a truly scrappy bag!
You can use any weight yarn from sport/DK weight up to bulky – and you can even use different weights as long as they are close in size.
Except for the most basic stitch patterns, all stitches are fully defined within the PDF document. There is even a planning page where you can write out the stitches and colors you will use for each day! (Random planning – is that an oxymoron?)
The pattern will be on sale until September 30, 2016: 20% off when you use code “mysterybag“.
There is also going to be a crochet-a-long (CAL) in my Ravelry group! Go to ASimpleHomestead Designs and show off a picture of your finished bag before Sept 30th (midnight CST) to be eligible to win prizes! Note: there are 20 stitches; the extra days for the CAL are to allow for catch-up on the rounds, making the top edging, and bag handles. Even if you don’t have much time to craft each day, you can easily complete this bag in the 30 days. Many of my testers
I can’t wait to see what everyone creates!
