Snoopy Bag

This was my first attempt at doing a crochet graph. For those of you that have no idea what that is, you take a picture, graph it out with graph paper, and then use each square to represent a stitch. That may seem overly simplified, but it wasn't as hard as I expected. There's no pattern for the bag. It's just rectangles/squares single crocheted together and I added a magnetic snap closure, because I think they're fun.



My daughter loved it. Too bad for her, it was destined for another little girl as part of Crochetville's Small Toy Swap.

  • Wow, that turned out really cute. I have an idea for a charted crochet pattern but wasn't sure how difficult it would be. Mine would be much bigger than a bag, though.

    The Snoopy turned out great!

  • Thanks! It was nice starting out small. I'd love to do a Southwest wall hanging and felt it. I'm trying to convince my husband to draw the picture for me.

  • Great result! Can you point me in the right direction on a tute for the charted crochet patterns. I love to try it out!

    You can do it using sc or using a special stitch and hook. I haven't tried the tunisian or afghan stitch, but you should be able to find more info here.

    You can upload a picture to this site to graph it out. There are other websites that do it too.
