Zig-Zag Book Bag

Issue: Issue 58

Zig-Zag Book Bag by Phyllis Serbes
(find the full pattern in issue 58 of Inside Crochet magazine)

This bag is inspired by the season's bright colours and a bobbled chevron pattern.

● Lily’s Sugar ‘n Cream, 100% cotton, 71g/109m/120yds
Yarn A: Grape 00071 x 1 ball
Yarn B: Red 00095 x 1 ball
Yarn C: Rose Pink 00046 x 1 ball
Yarn D: Tangerine 01699 x 1 ball
Yarn E: Sunshine 00073 x 1 ball
Yarn F: Hot Green 01712 x 1 ball
Yarn G: Light Blue 00026 x 1 ball
Yarn H: Black 00002 x 1 ball
● 4mm hook

You can use any heavy DK weight 100% cotton yarn to achieve a similar effect.

Exact tension is not essential for this project, but one chevron (each panel has three chevrons across) measures 8cm/3¼in across and the three rows of the same colour segment (measuring from first to third bobble) measures about 5cm/2in using 4mm hook, or size required to obtain tension.

Bag measures approximately 24cm/9½in across and 37cm/14½in from top of centre chevron to bottom edge.
