My design ideas and advice: The original yarn for this pattern was Skipton Swaledale, the second exclusive Purl and Jane Yorkshire yarn.  The first was Malham Mule.  The first edition has now sold out but keep watching my blog for some exciting news about a follow-up.
I’ve always dreamt of designing a simple crochet bag to carry my knitting or crochet projects in and, when Skipton Swaledale came back from the spinners, I knew it was the perfect yarn for this design idea.
