Since finishing the altered version of my Summer Checkers tote, I’ve been really busy trying to finish up some other custom orders. I actually love custom orders because it gives me a chance to use my creativity and I don’t get bored as quickly (at least most of the time).
I received this custom order for a Hounds tooth bag from an Alabama fan. I think it turned out really well and although as you know I must be an Auburn fan since graduating from Auburn University last month, I really wouldn’t mind having a bag like this for myself. it’s super cute.
A few people have inquired about a pattern on my ELK Studio’s Facebook page and another crochet group I am a part of, but wondered how much interest is from my blogger friends? Let me know your thoughts!!

I absolutely love the Houndstooth pattern. I cannot wait to get started so I can have the scarf and bag by wintertime in Colorado!! Thank you so much for the patterns! 🙂
Kathy Lashley says
I love it and got the yarn to make me one. Thank you for sharing.!!!!!
This bag is easier to make than it looks! I’ll be releasing the free pattern on my blog in the near future!!
The stitching is the same but you will be working in the round instead of back and forth. I am trying to finish up some custom orders and then plan on getting the pattern ready. Rebecca…..War Eagle…..lol (I couldn’t resist).
Hi! I have enjoying reading your blog so I nominated you for several awards. Find out details here:
Awwwww. Thank you so much! I’ll make my way over there now!
This is lovely. Reminds me of a houndstooth coat I had long ago. I’ve moved to warmer weather, but the pattern is timeless. Well done!
You are so right in the fact that it is timeless. I love that we can take pieces of string and turn it into something magical. It always amazes me every single time I finish a project.
Gorgeous! I need this pattern, please!
Thanks! I’ll be working on the pattern over the next few weeks in between orders, so just keep checking back! Thanks for the interest.
Ok, Kathy, i can wait…Thanks you!
That is adorable!! I need a good summer project- any ideas? PS: I’m a semi beginner! hahaha
Thank you Chelsea. What are you wanting to make? How semi of a beginner? Can you read and understand patterns and what about the type of stitches? The Hounds Tooth only calls for a single and double crochet, so it looks more complicated than it really is and you may could possibly do it. Tell me what you’ve made.
I know how to single and double crochet. I know how to read patterns if they include those stitches. I have mostly made scarves, including infinity scarves. I want to do granny squares in the worst way but I havent found a tutorial basic enough for me. I want to start Christmas traditions and give out blankets and slippers so I really wouldn’t mind knowing how to make those.
Starting a tradition is a great idea! I can try to find you a basic pattern or write out what I do for a granny square if you want me to. If you are interested, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
