A big bag !!!

Some weeks ago, I was browsing this book....

and I found this bag....

and having some chunky yarn (mostly "katia azteca" and some "Sirdar Squiggle super chunky") and a new 8mm hook (note that the bag shown above is worked with a 2,5mm hook!!!!!), well .... I wanted to have a try!!!
After 8 rounds I had enough even because it was becoming huge and I didn't see the end of it!!!
So I stopped to crochet it and put in a basket for a better moment!
Two days ago I picked up the work again and yesterday morning I completed it!!!
Wanna see???

Such a big satisfaction !!!! This will be a great gift for Christmas, don't you think so?
Who will be the lucky one? For sure, someone who lives in a cold country as the yarns used are a nice soft blend of wool and acrylic!!!!

My husband helped me for some pics..

It was my first try with the puff stitch!!! I really love the result!!!! orange Buddha loves to play hide and seek!!!!

Happy Weekend, xxxxx Alessandra
