    Omg! I love this pattern! I actually have these colors from a failed Mystery Make A Long which I’ve been debating frogging. Now that I see a better use for my yarn I’m doing it. Will there be a video tutorial?

    I love the look of this bag. Can you please post a tutorial on you tube so I can follow better. When following the pattern my stitches are off every time the tutorial will be very helpful. I work with 7 other women and want to make this pattern for Christmas gift for my fellow co-workers. Thanks in advance and looking forward to the tutorial.

      Ellie, I am not sure why the stitches are off. When does this happen after a hdc row? Or in a 2nd broad band of color? – Thank you for the feedback – Laura Jean

    Love, love, love this bag. I have some cotton and will give this bag a try this weekend! I have a bunch of day trips planned with my grandson and I think this bag will be perfect for my phone, wallet and keys and whatever other things we might need.

    Great job at your first pattern Laura Jean! This was a grand slam!

    Hi guys! I love this bag! I’m trying hard to make it, and I do have some experience with crochet. Also, I took the time to watch the video recommended in the comments. However, by the time I get to steps 7 and 8, I’m not just increasing by 6 each time. My counts are off by a stitch. Where it says the end count is 48, I’ve got 49. I’m so confused. Should I be increasing by 6, or should I be following the recommended ” sc in next 5/6/7″ etc. inc in next sc?? Thank you for your time

    Halo, im a beginner in crocheting. i really love this bag, so i try my best in crocheting it. I have a question, whats the meaning of “Sc in next st, sc in each of next 2 sc inc made” so i can make 18 sc? thank you

      Mikey has an excellent tutorial for understanding circles.http://thecrochetcrowd.com/crochet-circles/ your first round is 6, the next is 12, the next is 18. Each round increases by 6 stitches each round. When putting two stitches together it is called an increase or inc. Although that this bag is intermediate, I am confident that by watching the video on circles you can do it.

    I’m looking forward to making this for my daughter!
    A side note: not a big deal at all, but by “jinsy”, did you/Laura mean “chintzy”? (Found near end, when recommending solid sewing)
    chintz·y

      Jinsy… My meaning as far as I know it. It’s slang for don’t cut corners. I heard it used in the office. That was me who wrote that, not Laura Jean. I will review.

    Mikey, I love this dragon fly bag so I was looking at the pattern on line and although I am fairly new at crocheting and reading patterns I think this pattern is full of mistakes. It has colors wrong when saying a, b or c. It doesnt even count the 4th broad band as a row and where is does it says 4th and last broad band and there are 5 lime rows. Looking a the picture of the bag the next to last row is lime (B) and the last row is lilac (C) but according the the written instructions they are A and B. also the band rows all look the same except the 5th row looks wider. But in the directions it calls for HDC for the first broad band and DC for the next ones. Is this correct. Please help me out here am I just way off in understanding written patterns. Thank you so very much. Tina
