img_20190723_184354.jpgGauge: 3.75 sts and 4 rows = 1” inch

Tools: Size G (4 mm) Crochet hook

Stitch Markers: 1 removable

Notions: 1 – 24L button (⅝” diameter) with needle and thread to put it on with.

Skill Level: Advanced Beginner 

Size:  One size (3” x 2.5”)

 

Instructions:   Starting from bottom of bag

Foundational Round: Make a Slip stitch with a 4” tail. Loosely make 10 ch sts. Make a sc in the 3rd ch from the hook. (This counts as 2 sts in one ch.) Sc in next 6 ch loops. In the next ch which is the last ch, make 4 sc sts in this one ch going over the tail and pulling it to close. Sc in the next 6 sts. In the last one, make 2 sc. Sl st in the 2nd sc top.  (total of 20 sc)

Note: sometimes I am short a space. That is because I sometimes miss where the 1st space is after the 4 sc in one st. Go back and see.

Round 2: Ch 1, 1 sc in the same st as the ch 1. Put a st marker on the 1st st. Sc 19. Sl st to the 1st st (the one with the stitch marker.) (20 sts)

 Finish: Pull up yarn through live loop and leave a 6” tail. Use a blunt needle to sew the end down neatly and weave ends on inside of flap.

Button: Put flap down and use stitch marker to indicate where button should go. Lift flap up and use fingers to keep from sewing into back. Sew button securely with needle and thread.
