Instructions:
I found these instructions on the internet (can't find the site anymore!), but I didnt have enough yarn to complete the entire scarf. I finished with row 7, then made the fringe. Each fringe is about 40cm long, then folded and tied to the end of the scarf.

Mohair type yarn (brushed), 330 yards, that gives the following gauge
 Size G/6 (4mm) crochet hook OR SIZE TO OBTAIN GAUGE

GAUGE
12 dc and 6 rows to 4" / 10cm over pat st using size G/6 (4mm) crochet hook. TAKE TIME TO CHECK YOUR GAUGE.

SCARF
Beg at side edge, ch 188.
Row 1 (RS) Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across-185 sts. CH 4, turn.
Row 2 Sk first st, *dc in next 6 sts, ch 2, sk next st, dc in next 6 sts, ch 1, sk next st; rep from *, end dc in last st. Ch 4, turn.
Row 3 *Dc in next 4 sts, ch 4, sk next 2 sts, sc in next ch-2 sp, ch 4, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 4 sts, ch 1; rep from *, end dc in 3rd ch of ch-4 turning ch. Ch 4, turn.
Row 4 *Dc in next 2 sts, [ch 4, sc in next ch-4 sp] twice, ch 4, sk next 2 sts, dc in next 2 sts, ch 1; rep from *, end dc in 3rd ch of ch-4 turning ch. Ch 4, turn.
Row 5 *Dc in next 2 sts, work 2 dc in next ch-4 sp, ch 4, sc in next ch-4 sp, ch 4, work 2 dc in next ch-4 sp, dc in next 2 sts, ch 1; rep from *, end dc in 3rd ch of ch-4 turning ch. Ch 4, turn.
Row 6 *Dc in next 4 sts, work 2 dc in next ch-4 sp, ch 1, work 2 dc in next ch-4 sp, dc in next 4 sts, ch 1; rep from *, end dc in 3rd ch of ch- 4 turning ch. Ch 4, turn.
Row 7 *Dc in next 6 sts, dc in next ch-1 sp, dc in next 6 sts, ch 1; rep from *, end dc in 3rd ch of ch-4 turning ch. Ch 4, turn.
Rows 8-13 Rep rows 2-7. After row 7 is complete, fasten off.

This one isn't too hard to make, good luck!
142  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / First crochet project ever!! - Little Bags (+tutorial) on: August 15, 2005 10:03:06 AM
This is my first crochet project ever! My mom learned me and now i'm an addict. She didn't crocheted for a long time, so i kind of totally used the wrong stitches Tongue but it turned out ok.

Then i found this site: http://www.stitchguide.com, very handy!

The left bag is half the size of the one on the right.

GIFT TIP: fill them up with marbles, little soapbars / potpourri or presents like little stuffed animals, keychains or jewelry.

--------------------------

I found the instructions!! Here they are:

Materials
approx. 200g(7oz) handicraft cotton (approx. double knitting or worsted weight cotton yarn)
4.5 mm crochet hook

tutorial
foundation round Ch6, sl.st. to first chain to form ring.
round 1 Ch2, 11hdc into ring, sl.st. to join (12sts)
round 2 Ch2, 1hdc in joining ch., 2hdc in each st. around, sl.st. to join (24sts)
round 3 Ch2, 1hdc in joining ch., *1hdc in next st., 2hdc in next st.* around, sl.st. to join (36sts)
round 4 Ch2, 1hdc in joining ch., *1hdc in next 2 sts, 2hdc in next st.* around, sl.st. to join (48sts)
round 5 Ch2, 1hdc in joining ch., *1hdc in next 3 sts, 2hdc in next st.* around, sl.st. to join (60sts)
round 6 Ch2, 1hdc in joining ch., *1hdc in next 4 sts, 2hdc in next st.* around, sl.st. to join (72sts)
round 7-11 Ch2, 1hdc around, sl.st. to join (72sts)
round 12 Ch3, skip joining st., *skip 1 st., 1dc in next st., 1dc in previous st. (this forms 'twisted double dc' [tddc]), work tddc around, finish with dc in joining st., sl.st. to top of first Ch3 to join (this forms last tddc)

Repeat rounds 7-12 until desired bag height is achieved.
Finish off with 1 repeat of round 7.

Edging round *Ch3, sc. in first ch., skip 1, sc. in next st.* around, sl.st. to join.

Fasten off en sew in ends.

Finishing Make a drawstring cord (i just chained A LOT, but you can also chain and then sc. in every st. to end) en thread through the top row of twisted doubles. Beads or knots at the end of the cords, or sew both ends of the cord to the same place at the base of the bag.

Another tip: you can put a lit (about any lit the size of the bags bottom) in the bottom of the bag to make it a little sturdier. For this size bag, a Pringlescan-lit works just fine!

Good luck!!
