PINEAPPLE BOHO BEACH BAG


I have probably used the fantastic pineapple crochet pattern in almost every way possible.  Here is my pineapple boho beach bag.

Materials used : Just over one cone of polyester purse yarn in cones , with a 3.5 mm crochet hook
For Non-Indians : The polyester purse yarn is available only in India (to my knowledge). This yarn has a 4-ply or sport ply thickness.
You can make this project with any yarn and a hook that suits it.

Skill level : Intermediate. 

Stitches used :
Starting slip knot :This is a neat new way to start your work without a slip knot.http://stitchesnscraps.com/tutorial-starting-chain-to-knot-or-not/

Magic circle :To refresh your skill, please view this easy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLuSVyKvoUg

Chainless dc start : Instead of the usual start with ch 2 or ch 3,I’d like to introduce a lovely way of starting a double crochet row.  Do take a look at this self explanatory super video
In case you are unhappy with this start, or do not like it, do continue with the usual ch-2 or ch-3 start.  However, all instructions will be given assuming that you are using this chainless dc start.

  
Abbreviations used : (Using U.S terminology)
lp(s) : Loop(s)                                  sc : Single crochet
dc : Double crochet                              sp : Space                               
sl-st : Slip stitch                                           ch : Chain
st(s) : Stitch(es)                                           hk : Hook
yo : Yarn Over 
fsc : Foundation Single crochet                  
fdc : Foundation Double crochet


For today’s pineapple boho beach bag, visit http://ambrosiascreations.blogspot.in/2014/06/pattern-pineapple-crochet-market-bag.html?m=1.  This is the inspiration (designer's photo) that got me started on my creation.

 The beauty of this creation is that you can make it using any yarn with a suitable hook and make it to any size.  I did not have the yarn or hook specified by the designer, and have still made a fantastic creation – so go ahead, create and have a fun day at the beach.

and now for a quick photo bombing session as I show off my creation ;)
