I wanted to use a circular motif and was reminded by the lovely little woollie blog of a pattern I'd stored away for future use. I deliberately chose a smaller hook than I'd normally use with this yarn, as I want the fabric to be dense and sturdy. And so little circles grew into big circles!
I've decided to do a single round only of the squaring off bit, as I want the circles to fill most of the space. I haven't yet decided on the shape of the bag so I'm hoping that inspiration will strike as I make up some more motifs! I may just have to spend some more time on Pinterest!
