Dancing Flames Market Bag CAL
Part One – Supplies List
Welcome to the first Same DiNamics Crochet CAL – the Dancing Flames Market Bag CAL! This is a FREE CAL. I’m pretty excited to be sharing this pattern with you as my first CAL. Let’s work together in making this CAL a fun and successful one. We will learn and grow together as we venture on this fun crochet project.
The Dancing Flames Market Bag is made using bright colors and the chevron stitch. The use of these two combined gives the bag the illusion of dancing flames, or so I like to think. It’s a medium sized bag that works well for storing your purchased produce or items that aren’t too heavy. The Dancing Flames Market Bag also features a sideways “v” stitch giving it slight texture and added character.
This CAL will be written as I normally write all my patterns, except it’s broken into parts. In part one of this CAL you will find all the supplies and information needed to crochet your very own Dancing Flames Market Bag. This Dancing Flames Market Bag was also tested by the awesome Margaret of Snazzy Cuddles! She double checked everything for me and confirmed some changes I thought of making. I did make a change to the initial bottom of the bag, to make it easier to follow along.
Each part of the CAL will be released on the following schedule:
- Thursday, July 6, 2017 (part one, supplies list)
- Thursday, July 13, 2016 (part two, bottom of the bag)
- Thursday, July 20, 2017 (part three, body of the bag)
- Thursday, July 27, (part four, handles of the bag)
Side note: Red Heart sent me the Red Heart Stripes Yarn for me to review and use. I did like this yarn as it works well for different projects. I also liked how the colors changed from light to dark. I was able to get a few rows of one color and I really like the effect it gave the bag.
