Hoy Bag

Issue: 148


Hoy Bag by Fay Dashper-Hughes

Find the pattern in 148 of Inside Crochet magazine.

Inspired by the lines found in sea stacks like The Old Man of Hoy, off the Orkney Isles, the Hoy Bag is designed to be contemporary, durable and timeless.


• Garthenor Organic Beacons, 75% Polwarth wool/ 25% Romney wool, 50g/135m/148yds

Yarn A: Tuscany x 3 balls

Yarn B: Hoi x 1 ball

Yarn C: Baked Crimson x 1 ball

• 3mm hook

• Stitch markers

• Yarn needle

• Button snap/bag closure

• Strap of your choice

• Coordinating thread


Any yarn of the same weight will work well for this design. If you use a different yarn blend, your tension may vary and it is possible that you will not have enough yarn to complete all of the bag.


Fay combines her love of proper woolly wool and sustainability in her designs and podcast. You can find her on Instagram @faydhdesigns and @crochet_circle_podcast.
