Eve’s Shangri La Bag Crochet Project

Eve’s Shangri La Bag Crochet Project

Made by: Eve (pandorra7)

Pattern: Shangri La Crochet Bag Pattern by Kristin Omdahl

Yarn: Worsted

This pattern was love at first sight, and I finally got around to making it. I used worsted weight yarn – it’s big! The yarn is self striping: one color in orange-yellow-red tones, the other color in blue-turquoise tones. The pattern is well written and easy to follow. Love, love, love it!

This project features Be So Baby Yarn, now discontinued. Here are some suggested comparable yarns for substitution:

Ice Yarns:

Cotton Bamboo Light Yarn: 60% bamboo / 40% cotton; 153 yds (140m) per 100 gm (3.5oz) ball. It comes in 29 colors. The suggested needle size is 3 – 4 mm (US 4 – US 6).

Knit Picks:

CotLin: #3 Dk weight 70% Tanguis Cotton, 30% Linen; 123 yds per 50gm skein; suggested needle size US 5 – 7. I think the drape and weight of this yarn would be comparable to Be So Baby Yarn. It comes in 44 colors and retails for $4.99 per skein.
