ABOUT THIS PATTERN
We teamed up with London-based designer Peju Obasa, who created this amazing crochet bag just for us! The exclusive pattern is available to buy solo (without a kit), and the best bit? 100% of proceeds will go to Black Girl Ventures.
The “Tie After Tie” bag features Peju’s signature vibrant city-chic style, with a rounded front, rectangular body and removable strap. Makers can stitch this up in contrasting colours, as well as wear it either across their shoulders or around their waist (long live the bumbag!). The pattern uses single crochet, two rolls of our Ra-Ra Raffia yarn, a metal clasp and a 4.5mm hook. It’s an intermediate level, so it’s ideal for people with a little bit of crochet know-how, but if you’re a beginner, don’t fear! You can quickly get yourself up to speed with our handy YouTube tutorials.
