Ethnic Bag by Lanas y Ovillos

Picsart2017-30-7--14-00-41

Hi guys, so today I’m going to share a pattern for a Wayuu Bag, which I found on YouTube. It’s just a piece I came across and decided to give it a try.

DISCLAIMER: This is not my original work and I’m not paid or sponsored in any way.

I’m going to link the video below, as well as the site of the people who created the bag and I’m also writing up the pattern I  came up with, for the flap I decided to add, using the pattern from Lanas y Ovillos -the creators of the pattern.

Again, this is not my work and I simply adapted the pattern to create the flap of the bag. All other work was done using the pattern and video tutorial by Lanas y Ovillos

Ps. My bag is still not complete as I ran out of the navy blue yarn I used, but my plan is to add two straps, like a regular backpack instead of the one strap like the tutorial.

Now to the tutorial, 

The actual chart can be found here

And this is the pattern I created for the flap using the chart from Lanas y Ovillos. I actually decreased stitches to work this but I think increasing stitches give a better finish so you can work from R24 to R1.

As this is a tapestry project, and requires a change of color, I’m going to type this pattern with C1 and C2. C1 being the main color and C2 being the design color. 

The entire project is done with DC.

Here’s a breakdown of what the pattern looks like written, 

R2: 5C1, 2C2, 16C1, 2C2, 16C1, 2C2, 5C1  (48DC)

Simply, that means, 5DC in color 1, 2DC in color 2, 16DC in color 1, 2DC in color 2, 16DC in color 1, 2DC in color 2 and 5DC in color 1, to give a total of 48DC.

Again, I would like to state that I do not own this pattern, and I’m not sponsored or paid in any way and I do not claim to own this property. This pattern belongs solely to the folks over at  Lanas y Ovillos.

I then used a SC around the flap with color 2. I attached it to the actual bag when I started the SC at the top of R1.

    I love this bag Kelley and your addition of the flap looks great!! I’ve been wanting to do a tapestry crochet project but haven’t been able to come up with a design in my head yet. 😀
