Pineapple Bag

My Pineapple Bag is finished! I think I'll use it for the beach - in the photo above it holds a towel, my swimsuit and a book, and there is room enough for more stuff like sunscreen, a bottle of water etc.

I really enjoyed making this bag, and I love how it looks. For a beginning crocheter it was a challenging pattern - but I like a challenge, so no problem ;-)

It's a big bag, it can hold a lot of stuff - but it stretches a lot, so I wouldn't use it for really heavy things. It would be perfect for yarn shopping!

The pattern starts with a magic loop which I hadn't used before, but I'm glad to say I mastered it (I found these instructions very useful).

I used up almost all of my 200g ball of yarn to make this bag. The ball on the right is what is left of it:

Dat is een hele mooi gehaakte tas, zou je hem kunnen voeren als je hem niet zo ver zou willen laten uitrekken? Vast wel he. Groetjes Shirley
