Graphic Backpack

Hi peeps, yes – I am still here; it has been crazy in our household since my last post.

So apologies for not posting lately but I will endavour to come back more frequently now.

Thanks for sticking around.

So, to start off my “comeback” I will show you one of my crochet projects I completed not so long ago. It is one that can drive you “bananas” as there is a colour change every 4th stitch or so. I found the free pattern on the Paintbox Yarn website and fell in love.

Most of the time I buy my yarn on LoveCrochet and at the time there were a few specials on the Paintbox yarn. So I sat down and figured out what I needed. Once the stash

arrived I could begin:

Material used:

Skill Level as per pattern is said to be Intermediate but I think if you are comfortable with the colour changes it should be easier.

It is a great project because it is so different from other bags or blankets.

I can offer a photo while I was in the middle of the work and of course a finished result:

I loved making it.

Crochet project / blanket

This is my newest finished project which actually didnt take too long to make.

It is either a  quick pattern or I am getting much better at it 🙂

The throw is a design by Margaret Willson

Here are the materials I used:
