I bought a couple of Hoooked Zpagetti bag kits a while ago and was determined to work at least one of them up by summer! My determination has paid off as I’ve nearly finished the Rimini crochet handbag:
This handbag is crocheted using a 12mm hook (supplied) and uses 1.5 to 2 balls of the included grey Zpagetti yarn depending on how much you stick to the pattern.
I made a few things with the yarn before going on to complete the bag, and can recommend this super bulky yarn for crocheting bowls, baskets, placemats, or even a rug or mat! It gives lovely defined stitches and because its so thick, it works up very quickly.
The included instructions are easy, but also a bit useless as the pattern could be written in a couple of lines – the whole bag is worked up in double crochet (or single in US terms).
I’ll be sure to post some pics when the bag is finished. I bought my bag kits from Hobbycraft for £19.99.
