Bag Caddy

So I know I said I’d try to make a new doggie outfit but I made one and it didn’t work, my little furbaby couldn’t walk good in it. Well I haven’t gotten an official order from the lady I crochet for so I’ve decided to make a somewhat easy and quick pattern for a bag caddy. Since we’re moving I’ve decided to put all my current grape themed kitchen stuff I made, the glass spice jars and many other grape themed items together. And I’ve decided to get rid of them, I just don’t like the glass jars anymore they’re too hard to clean and they don’t seal good.
So I went to walmart and saw this peaches & creme yarn that has been sticking out to me for months but I never got it, so I took all of them… I went around to the towels and picked some out to make some towel toppers, with the yarn and then when I got home I decided to make a bag caddy instead.

It’s not the prettiest pattern but I think it’ll work good, for the new house and I’m going to make potholders and of course the towels toppers.

Angel

So 2 years after having this blog and calling myself “Angel” I’ve decided to change it, my name is Sarah and my husband of 3 years has called me his Angel. Which is where I got the idea, the blog is still called Angel’s Knitting and Crochet but from now on I want to use my real name (and I’ll probably be editing my posts to change that) I also just added all my patterns to ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/designers/sarah-wesemann

I’m just tired of the whole Angel thing every time I sign, plus it’s easier to prove they’re my patterns when I use my real name. Not that anyone has tried to claim them as their own, just a precaution. Anyway I just wanted to post OH and of course we’re moving in the next 2 weeks and after we move and get settled (probably after the new year) I am going to move forward with the contest. YAY!!! I can’t wait, but it is still only for subscribers and facebook fans so if you want in please subscribe or like me on facebook!

Keep your eyes out and Happy Crocheting and Knitting!

Not much

Well it’s not a big pattern and I made 5 in an hour, I might be able to do more later on today but I’ve been wanting to do this for a while.

I have 5 house keys on my key rings and I constantly grab the wrong ones, I bought a key cover once and not only was it a pain to put on the key but when I attempted unlocking a door the key couldn’t get close enough to actually unlock it. So for about a year now I’ve been just being slow and trying to pick the right key.
So one night I couldn’t sleep and I thought “I could make my own key covers!” I haven’t had the chance to sit down until today, it’s fast and easy, I have 2 keys that go to the same house but are different so I did the same colors but did one in back loops only.

It’s easy and quick, so here we go!

Keys Keys2 Keys3

Medium 4 weight yarn
E/4-3.5mm Hook

Abbreviations
Ch-Chain
Sc-Single crochet
Sl-slip stitch
inv dec- Invisible decrease
sk-skip

Yarn Key Covers.

Ch 8, sl to first ch to make loop
1) sc 12 in loop
2-3) sc in each sc around
4) inv dec, sc, ch 2, sk 2, sc. Repeat 1 more time
finish off weave in ends where you can

The skipped sc holes are so you can put the key ring through the cover and the key. they get a little bulky but most key covers do. Now if you use a type of yarn that is a little thinner though it says medium 4 check the height, slip the key in the cover and see where it lands on the key, it needs to be just below where it tapers up if it’s not there then add 1 more row of sc.

I know it was short but it’s all I have right now, hopefully I can make a new pattern soon!

Happy Crocheting!
