Hello blog friends, hope you had a lovely week. Today’s blog post will be short and sweet because things have been a little busy here in the last few days. Busy and productive on the good side. I just wanted to pop in and let you know that there are now two Nina Bag YouTube tutorials available. I was longing to create these videos from the moment the Nina bag pattern was published. This week I finally made it. Yesterday I have uploaded the second video where I teach how to crochet the handles. If you are not new to this space, you already know how much I love teaching and my YouTube channel is just another channel for this passion of mine.
I created the Nina Bag YouTube tutorials not just to help you along with the making but also to make you feel like you learn with me in person. I made it so you can feel like we sit and crochet together. Even better because you can pause and resume the video whenever you like to rewatch any step made. I hope you will find it as helpful as I wanted it to be.So now the Nina Bag crochet pattern comes with two video tutorials. Both made so you can feel more comfortable with the ‘less simple’ steps on the pattern.
- On the first video I teach how to crochet the rectangular base shape, which is the first part of the pattern and might be helpful for you even if you are an advanced crocheter.
- On the second video I teach how to crochet the handles which is the last part of the pattern and I also included a part where I show how to weave in the ends because a few of you asked for it.

The Nina Bag is really simple and very basic crochet pattern. Based on your Etsy reviews and my weekly girls, it’s an ‘easy to follow’ pattern. But even on easy patterns, it’s always helpful to get a video tutorial included on top of the written instructions. At least I always appreciate it when provided. The fact that you can see me actually crocheting adds this little extra support.
On my Nina Bag YouTube tutorials I used the same yarn used in my original bag which is the Tibetan Cloud from mYak fibers. I use 3 skeins of yarn in colour Wild Daisy and work with 3 strands of yarn held together. The bag is crocheted with a 5mm crochet hook.
So now together with my Chamomile & Sage video tutorial you got it all covered and you can make the same Nina bag as seen in the above picture. I think these two patterns can create an endless beautiful crochet gifts that is so joyful to make. I really hope you find my videos helpful and thank you so much for watching, xxMo
