This pattern was in the beginner kit I bought to get me started. I made and use one of these nifty little guys myself. It's like a washcloth and your soap all in one Cheesy



with soap...


It's such a pretty stitch pattern, and easy too, I'll probably ending making jillions of them as gifts.

Sure! It's really easy...here goes.... I used a light mercerized cotton.

-Chain 29
-DC in 4th ch from hook
-DC in each ch to end of row
-Turn the ends to meet each other and do a slip stitch into the first DC space
-chain 3
-Skip a stitch and make a HDC in the next one, chain 1 (rpt all the way round)
When you get back to where you started
-Make a HDC into the big space you made at the start of the previous row, and chain 1
From now on do the following:
-HDC into next big space, chain 1
until the bag is about as long as you want it to be - stop the stitches parallel with the little gap in your initial row.
-SC into next big space
-Hold front and back edges together, slip stitch together across the edges to close the bag. Tie off.

For the drawstring chain a length about 10" long and leave a bit of a tail. Thread the drawstring in and out of spaces around the bag about 1" below the open edges. Tie a half knot, then tie the very ends together.

Looks simple enough! It's crocheted as a rectangle and then stitched together, which I can handle. And, I just found out how to make a hdc...so I should be all set!

Thanks for sharing the pattern!

Actually you join the first row of double crochets and then you just keep going round and round and round - easier still Smiley

I get it now! That's what happens why I try to engage my brain when it is waaaay past my bedtime. Wink

I might actually give this a try today...
