Patterns Coming Soon!

Tuesday, May 12, 2009 12:01 PM

I am working on a Free pattern for you and I'm also trying to translate the directions (from Portuguese!) for this cute bag originally shown here - Click here

Forget trying to translate! Arggh! So I'm sort of winging it, but the Graph for the pattern is here: Graph

I have the bag and the ruffling done, but now I'm going to try to make the shoulder straps. Hopefully this weekend I can get it all written down for you!

I've done the bag!

(in a hideous shade of Red, because really, I was just practicing!)
I am working on another bag in a color that's easy on the eyes and taking photos for you. I will post it soon.

    I'm kinda liking the red now. But the one I'm making for myself is tweedy browns tans and a little black in it. It's the one I'm using to show how to do the pattern. I'm ALMOST done!

    Hey, I know a little Portuguese, maybe I can figure out what the original says...

    Aha, here's my quick try at translating the Portuguese (just the directions, not the chitchat):

    "Tips: Double yarn (Bella brand) and 7mm needle, first row with 32 points, increase to 28 points each side, 24 lines with no increase, start to decrease again, to the end of the folds (gathers?) you’ll have 24 points, lift (?) with 70 chain stitches."

    I wasn't familiar with all of the vocabulary, hope this makes sense!
