Design Story


The Middleton Market Bag was designed last year along with two other crochet bags. The Middleton Bag Collection came about because I was at a loss for inspiration for summer wear. So, I visited the world of accessories. The Middleton Market Bag went through not 1, not 2, but 4 revisions. It was a learning experience and I enjoyed designing the perfect market mesh bag.


The Pattern


This crochet pattern is quick and beginner-friendly. It is constructed from the bottom-up starting with a magic circle and slowly making its way up with multiple chains.



Modesty by Laura Middleton Market Bag shown from the bottom.



Materials

-1 skein of Bernat Maker Home Dec
-8mm hook
-tapestry needle


 

Abbreviations

 

MR- magic ring

ch-chain

chsp-chain space

dc-double crochet

hdc-half double crochet

sc- single crochet

sc2tog-single crochet 2 together

slst-slip stitch

st-stitch



Gauge


10 sts and 8.5 rows is 4”.

 


Notes

 

The bag is worked in rounds. It is highly recommended that you use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of the round.

The chain 2 in the beginning counts of each round counts as a stitch.

 


Pattern

 

Create a Magic Ring

 

Round 1: ch 2, dc in the MR, *ch 2, 2dc cluster* repeat for a total of 4 times, ch2, slst at the top of the ch 2, turn your work (5 chsps)

 


Pull the MR closed.


 

Round 2: ch 2, 2dc in the next chsp, *dc in the next st, 3 dc in the next ch sp* repeat to the end ch sp, dc in the final st, slst into the top of the ch 2, turn your work (20)


 

Round 3: ch4 (counts as st and ch 2), 2dc in the next st, ch 2 and skip a st, *2dc in the next st, ch 2 and skip a st* dc in the last st, slst in the 2nd ch of the ch 4, turn your work

 


Round 4: ch 2, dc in the next st, 3dc in the next ch sp, *dc in the next 2 sts, 3dc in the next ch sp* repeat to the end, slst in the top of ch 2, turn your work (50)

Nautical Tote Knit Pattern

Wednesday, November 27, 2019





A simple tote with a touch of lace makes for a beautiful addition to your bag collection. With signature nautical colors, this bag is sure to catch everyone's eye. 

The Nautical Tote is a beautiful and simple bag that includes both knit and crochet. The body of this tote is knit while the handles are crocheted. The body includes some eyelet v-stitches to make it stand out a little from just a plain colorblock tote.




Pattern

To purchase the inexpensive ad-free PDF file, please visit Etsy or Ravelry.

To pin this pattern for later, visit Pinterest.









Materials

-5.0mm knitting needles
-4.5mm crochet hook
-a skein of Loops and Thread Impeccable in colors gold, pale gray, and sapphire
-tapestry needle


Gauge 

Crochet straps: every 16 stitches equal 4 inches

Tote Body: every 25 rows and 18 stitches equal 4 inches



Measurements

The tote panels are approximately 12 inches long and 10.8 inches wide.

The straps have are approximately 20.5 inches long and will have approximately an 18 inch drop after it is sewn onto the tote.

Notes


To alter the length, crochet more rows for a longer tote and less for a shorter tote.


For a smaller or wider tote, simply cast on in multiples of 12+1.


To make your handle straps longer increase the number of beginning chains. To shorten them, decrease the number of beginning chains.

Free Crochet Pattern-- Middleton Purse

Monday, June 3, 2019





The Middleton Purse is a basic and classy purse that will be sure to impress all your friends. The purse is just big enough for wallet and a makeup pouch. Great date night or out on the town bag. If you haven't crochet a bag before, this is a great purse to make.



Summer time is a tough season to design in my opinion. With the heat, it doesn't seem like a lot of people are interested in touching yarn. I can attest to it as I have lost my "crojo". So I decided to create the Middleton Collection. The collection includes this Middleton Purse, Middleton Tote, and Convertible Bow Bag. There is one more that is a part of this collection which has not debuted and will probably be introduced Summer 2020.






Materials

-2 (or 3; refer to the notes for explanation) skeins of Bernat Maker Home Dec in Steel Blue
-8.0 mm hook
-a chain strap (I used this https://amzn.to/2KD5Ac3.)
-a lock of your choice (I used this https://amzn.to/2VNJQLY.)
-a 1.0 inch gold plated D-ring
-stitch markers
-large tapestry needle
-scale to measure out yarn

Abbreviations

ch- chain
sc- single crochet
sc2tog-single crochet 2 together
st- stitch
sts-stitches
*- repeat from first asterisk to the
second asterisk
( ) -the number of stitches in that row

Gauge

Every 10 sts and 10 rows is 4”.
Measurements
(Rough estimates)
2.25” in width
6” in height
10” in length

Notes

- Beginning ch counts as a stitch unless otherwise noted.
-This pattern requires using three strands together. I bought 2 skeins and rolled three 5.8 oz balls from those 2 skeins with plenty of yarn left over. If you would liketo avoid rolling out balls, you can choose to buy 3 skeins of yarn.
-If you wish to use a difference chain handle, for reference, the one in this pattern is 39” long.

Pattern

To purchase an inexpensive ad-free PDF version of this pattern, visit Etsy or Ravelry.

Ch 1, sc along the length of the panel til you reach the first corner, 1 sc in the corner, sc in the same corner but with the d ring (refer to the pictures), sc across the width with the D-ring til you reach the next corner, sc in the corner again without the D ring, sc along the length of the panel til you reach the next corner and repeat the exact same steps that you did for the other side.

Assembly

Take your front panel, the side/bottom panel and some stitch markers to align the sides of the front panel to the side/bottom panel. Place a stitch marker through both at each corner of the front side of the bag. 




Take your tapestry needle and one strand of yarn and mattress stitch through the sides of the bag. The stitch markers will help you stay on track with your sewing. Take your back and flap panel and mark the four corners of the back of the bag with the rest of the bag.




Mattress stitch from the first stitch marker and around to the last stitch marker. Attach your choice of lock and your choice of bag handle.


I hope that you find the Middleton Purse crochet pattern a fun one to do. Stay connected with me on social media. See you there!




Happy crocheting!

Laura
