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
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. http://photos22.flickr.com/34259042_89c459f071.jpgGIFT 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 hooktutorialfoundation 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!
