I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    I can’t get 12 to match the pattern.
    Help!!!!!!

    1. Mikey says:

      I’m sorry. Match what? I don’t understand the problem to help. Can you be more specific. What have you done, where are you in the pattern. Why don’t you think it’s matching up. I’m sorry, we need more details.

  2. Jean J Brumbeloe says:

    Is there a video tutorial for this bag? If not, I wish you would make one.

    1. Jeanne says:

      Post your request for Michael at this link. Tutorial Requests

    I really loved this bag! I made it with Lily’s Sugar and Cream. The color was Autumn Leaves which was on sale in the cones. I have a couple of 120z. skeins of Lily’s in other variegated colors that I will use to make this bag again. I made a border around the top with sc, ch3, sk 1 st, sc. It made it a little “prissier” Thank you for all your great designs, I always love them.

  4. Alexis says:

    I have attempted this pattern 3 times. I cannot seem to get past row 11 without the stitches not adding up and I am following the pattern exactly as written but when I come to row 12 I am only able to do 4 set of 3dc, dc2tog, and then 3 more sets of 3dc before I hit the corner. I’ve frogged my project completely over and over trying to figure out where I went wrong and I feel like something just isn’t adding up. Patterns usually come easy to me but for some reason this one just isn’t adding up, is there a correction needed between row 11/12? I don’t know where I’m going wrong.

    1. Jeanne says:

      I have a couple of rough sketches I will upload. They helped a couple people out in the group. But there is no corrections and several have completed this project already.

  5. Katie says:

    Ugh I messed up on the follow up email. I would like to follow this post to know if there’s a corrections to Row 11 on the BoHo bag.

    1. Mikey says:

      I’ll let Jeanne know you are struggling. I know the testers and her worked on this before it went live.

  6. Katie says:

    Regarding the Boho Bag: on Row 11 I have 8 chain spaces yet the way the pattern reads I should have 9 so as I should do a DC2Together between sets of DC. Please advise if there are corrections some place. This is hard for new crocheters like my daughter

      I’ll let Jeanne know you are struggling. I know the testers and her worked on this before it went live.

    2. Jeanne says:

      The chain 3 spaces on the sides will always be an odd number, so something is off on your previous round maybe?
