Inga’s Häkelbeutel Again

10 Jan

Green Tote BagProject: Inga’s Häkelbeutel
Size: 7×7 inch
Pattern By: Inga Joana Mertins
Hook: H
Yarn: Caron Simply Soft Limelight, Mint Blue.
Pattern from: Ravelry

Notes: My second bag! I’m even more pleased with this one! It’s much smaller and makes a nice size for a gift bag or something. It measures about 20 inches around when stuffed with two big yarn cakes as you see in the picture. I did the straps starting with a CH80. I didn’t think they needed to be quite so long as the other one with a smaller bag. I’m not happy with the Caron Simply Soft. That stuff is annoying. Weaving in ends is a nightmare. It’s so slippery that you keep getting little ends popping out everywhere even before you’ve used it. The colors are quite nice though!

    I’m not fond of the Simply Soft either, it splits too much. I used some of it for the stripes on my dad’s blanket. The yarn does have a nice shimmer to it though. The bag is adorable, great job!

      Thanks! I’ve also heard some people say the Simply Soft starts looking “old” after a few washings–getting fuzzy and whatnot.
