Special Effects Tote II

I liked my first Special Effects Tote Bag so much that I made one for myself. (My original black and white one was for a friend.) The pattern is featured in Jan/Feb '08 Crochet Today! Magazine, and I used Red Heart Super Saver: Burgundy, and Red Heart Super Saver: Black for the colors, along with a size H/8 crochet hook. It is made from 8 square motifs and two handle sides all whipstitched together. It's fast, easy, and fun to make! It took me about 2 days to make. For me, each motif square took about an hour (however, some took less time than that), but it sewed up quickly.

    I do not have the pattern anymore. :( But I will do my best to figure out the squares again (I think I have a similar pattern lying around...). Check back often and I will get instructions up as soon as I can.

    It's not a knit, it's a crochet, so if you do not know how to crochet I cannot change this pattern in order to help you.

    Really cool, the first one was awesome too. I just realized that the first Special effects was the same color as the Guitar Hero I controllers, and this Special effect thing is the same color as the Guitar Hero II controllers.
