The Design

"A cute carryall in durable raffia!"

It all started with a straw backpack Kit found years ago at a New York street market. The bag is no more, but Kit’s sketch survived! We like the ‘bucket’ style and chose an oval base for less bulky proportions. We created a capacious ‘backpack’, then kept scaling down until we arrived at zippered pouches. With options for a backpack or drawstring straps, you can make a bag for all reasons!

We crocheted a handy smaller version of the Oval Crocheted Bucket Bag using two colors of Wool and the Gang’s Ra-Ra Raffia and a free adaptation to our original pattern. This biodegradable, vegan yarn is made of 100% long wood fiber—essentially paper. And it’s very crochet-friendly! Lightweight, quick drying, and with an excellent structure, Ra-Ra Raffia makes a perfectly beach-ready carryall!
