Designed by Clare Sullivan


Video tutorial –



Level: Easy


Yarn (see note below)

Hook (see note below)

Scissors and yarn needle

Tape measure for hat only

4 stitch markers (bag only)



  • The size of your bag will depend on the amount of yarn that you need. I used 200gm/7oz of yarn to make a small bag – I held 2 strands together
  • You can use any yarn that you like.
  • My bag used 2 strands of 8ply/DK/Sports weight yarn held together and a 6mm/J hook,
  • You could use 1 strand of medium worsted weight yarn and a 5.5mm/I hook
  • 1 strand of 8ply/DK/Sports weight yarn will need a 4mm hook
  • I did 4 rows for base of bag and 7 rows of cluster stitch
  • Bag and hat are started the same way – the only difference is the handles
