Crocodile Stitch Bag -- Finished!!!


Happy to anounce that my Croco-bag is finished!!!!

Ok, ok, it was finished almost a month ago, but then the camera black out happened!

Maybe you remember when I discovered the Crocodile Stitch, when I started my bag, and when it was almost finished...

Today we have a "Here it is" post!
My bag was made using Cascade 220 superwash... with a 5mm hook.
It measures 10x10in (25x25 cm) and has a 43in (109 cm) long strap so it can be used on the side, next to the hip.

I am very pleased with the result... and the people at my LYS must be too, because they've asked me to give a class for this project!!!!! how cool is that?
I'm excited and happy and I'm honored that I've been asked and thankful to have the opportunity.
I haven't lined the bag yet... I plan to do it in the future, but right now, I want to be able to show the back of the crocodile stitch in the class, which I think is beautiful too!
I've written down the pattern for this bag and right now it's being tested by some of the lovely ladies at We Love Lucy group at Ravelry... Thank you so much guys!!! your input has been very valuable!

So I hope to have it complete and available really soon!

See you soon!


  1. The bag is stunning, Shanti! When I saw the pictures of it in progress, I thought it will be great but it's just perfect! Job well done!

    Happy day greetings from Finland!

    No se si sabes español. Pero me estoy aventurando a preguntate si tienes este patron en espanol. Seria muy bueno. Y otra cosa que me gustaria hacer un grany block con una flor de cocodrilo no se como hacer la puntada cocodrilo de una manera circular.

    Buenos gracias por tu atencion,
