Granny Square Bag. Free Crochet Pattern & Video Tutorial

Only two weeks after the last crochet tutorial (an asymmetric cowl), here are two more! I know, bonkers!  But sorry, I’m flooding you with grannies at the moment, I swear I do have other ideas.

My YouTube channel is HERE.

This tutorial is based on a granny square bag I made a couple of years ago. The original blog post can be found HERE.  There are lots of details in that post that will be super useful. However, it is a slightly different  version. I’ve made this new one a bit less fussy.

There are two videos. The one above is how to put the bag together. The one below is how to make the Join As You Go Grannies. I start by making a granny square and then at the time stamp of 5.25 I begin to join them together.

Please see below for some accompanying pictures…

If you fancy supporting my crochet adventures, I would be utterly and completely full of gratitude. You can do this by supporting me on Patreon. I understand that you can make one off payments as well as signing up monthly, whatever floats your boat. Thanks ever so much!

Z&R Crochet Podcast 55. Tidy Tidy Tidy

Welcome to Episode 55!  I’m pleased to say that I’ve been enjoying my crochet over the last couple of weeks.  I do hope you like the episode. As well as WIPs and FOs, I talk about Ravelry and their new policy. Cripes, it was tricky to talk about without getting passionate! I hope I was careful with my words; it really isn’t my area of expertise. I believe it’s important that it’s discussed though, so there was no way I was going to ignore the current issues.

Please go HERE to YouTube for all my videos or click on the pic above to go directly to the episode.

Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2019

Hallooo, I’ve done a quick video rundown of this year’s Edinburgh Yarn Festival. I’ve not done one before and thought it’d be a good idea. Go HERE to watch on YouTube!!

Watching it back I can see how much I’ve missed out (there was so much I wanted to say!!) but hopefully what I do talk about is something you find interesting. In a bid to get it out so that EYF is still fresh in my mind, I’ve just talked at you for half an hour as stuff falls out my mouth. Now I’m off to have a power nap because I still haven’t recovered from my weekend in Scotland.

See below for the few photos I took whilst there, some of the yarn I bought and what I plucked up the courage to wear…

So I’m already getting stuck in. I think I have managed to make stuff with about 82% of each year’s EYF purchases!

My granny tie is made with lots of stash bits. I’ll talk about it more in Episode 50 of my crochet podcast.
