I recently picked up some Sugar 'n Cream yarn at a really good price that I wanted to make a beach bag out of.
This is the seemingly straightforward pattern that I chose:
Unfortunately, my outcome isn't exactly the same as the picture:
It looks like a watering can cozy. What happened?? Believe it or not, this is my second attempt at the bag. The first time around I didn't count stitches, so I was much more meticulous with the next try. Unbelievable. Something is wrong with that pattern, and I am devastated that have to take it all apart AGAIN!! Maybe it's a sign that I shouldn't crochet after Christmas....
