Product Description

By Rianne de Graaf

Colourful, functional and fun - these striking crocheted Wayuu mochilla bags have the best combination of features! Using the technique of tapestry crochet, there are 10 stunning bags to make, all in excitingly bold colourways and designs, with the characteristic woven shoulder straps and drawstring cords. Using the traditional geometric patterns and shapes of the Colombian and Venezuelan Wayuu people, each bag is unique and you can make them in your own choice of colours.

There is a comprehensive techniques section with large close up illustrations to illustrate the application of the tapestry technique for the mochilla bags, with explanations in both US and UK terminology and why the techniques are used in these bags.  Additional instructions include dealing with potential problems - curling bottoms, changing balls/colours, twisted yarns and discusses alternative materials available.

Instructions are included for making the shoulder strap using the technique of ply-split braiding and includes 6 different patterns, and using a kumihimu disc to create the drawstring.
