The August issue of I Like Crochet is here and I am so excited to see two new patterns that I have designed!
The first pattern I designed for this issue is the Allons-y Bag using Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable and Red Heart Soft. Both of these yarns I have used before and really love, so choosing these yarns for this project was a n0-brainer! I have always loved the Unforgettable yarn and decided to use the same colorway that I used in the Unforgettable One-Skein Scarf. The color changes in this yarn are incredible and I was just as happy using this yarn for a bag as I was for the scarf. The granny squares are worked first then the bag is worked in a textured stitch after they are joined. Check it out:

La Plage Bracelet
The second pattern I designed is the La Plage Bracelet. This is the bracelet that started my crochet jewelry obsession! I went to look for the metal findings to clasp this bracelet and saw the many, many options at my local craft store and got carried away. After this bracelet I designed two others (the Forever Bracelet and the Inspired Bracelet) and a necklace (the Elegant Simplicity Necklace) and have others in the works! All three of those patterns are free! I created this bracelet using Aunt Lydia’s Fashion 3, my favorite crochet thread. Crochet up three grannies, then add the end bars and a lobster clasp and you are good to go!
