The yarn for this post was provided by Wool and the Gang. Thank you!
I guess I have been on a crochet clutch kick lately (check out my Color Pop Clutch, Tide Pool Clutch and Everia Clutch). Crochet clutches are on trend right now, and summer is the perfect time to make them, since you don’t really want to snuggle under a cozy blanket in the summer heat. This Crochet Cindy Case turned out absolutely gorgeous. I was working on it while visiting family this weekend and everyone commented on how pretty it is, and what a lovely texture it has.
I admit, I was skeptical about this Tina Tape by Wool and the Gang when I first saw it. It seemed unusual to crochet with flat yarn and I didn’t know how the finished stitches would look.
I have never been more wrong.
It worked up beautifully! It looks incredibly stylish, I love it. PLUS, it’s made from eucalyptus fibers, so it’s a sustainable resource and vegan, (and of course silky soft). Isn’t that color dreamy? It’s called “Perfect Peach.”
I decided to make this Crochet Cindy Case, which is a free crochet pattern on the Wool and the Gang website. Disclaimer: you do have to sign up for the WATG newsletter to get it, but you instantly get access to the downloadable PDF, so I would definitely recommend it.
It was a very easy pattern to make, and it called for two strands of yarn. The finished Cindy Case is thick and lovely! I have thought about lining some of my other clutches with fabric, but there is no need with this one. I am still debating about how to do the closure. I might crochet a tie like my Wrap Clutch, or put a tassel on the top with a loop.
I absolutely love Tina Tape! If you decide to give it a try, be sure to join the Tina Tape Facebook Group and share your project with everyone.
