This is supposed to be a cell phone cozy, I think. It’s perfect for holding Spaghettios! I put the can in there to demonstrate the bag’s size, but now I just find it funny. Don’t mind me; I tend to laugh at my own jokes a lot more than everyone else does.
This pattern is about a C. Try it here: http://knitaly.blogspot.com/2010/06/cell-cozy.html Scroll down to the bottom for directions in English, unless you are fluent in reading Italian.
As for the pattern’s instructions, somewhere the stitches didn’t line up, or I misinterpreted, but I got confused and it’s not the same on both sides of the bag. It’s not bad, but I probably wouldn’t sell this to anyone. Somewhere in the turning of the bag clockwise, and sew straps on here — I almost sewed the straps on the wrong sides, because that’s how turned around I got. I’m unimpressed by that, because this bag looks SO simple in the pictures, and I’m fairly certain I could find a youtube video explaining it without any problems (and I probably should have). If any of you reading try this and want to give me some additional tips in the comments, I’d love to see them.
Actually, it’s about the right size for a cell phone and not much else. If you carry a small wallet, this may work. The pattern doesn’t include the flower – that’s something I looked up on youtube at some point in the past and sewed on because I wasn’t 100% happy with this. Since it matched far too well, I also added an outline and put a different colored center on it. I hope I didn’t add too much, actually.
The nice part is that this little bag takes a really small amount of yarn, and I’m sure with a thicker yarn or a larger hook I could have made this much larger and actually had a handbag that I (mother and teacher and crocheter, ergo generally large handbag carrier) would like to carry.
