I am loving my crochet at the moment!
Today I wanted to create a little gift bag and this is what I came up with. Hope you like it.
|purple gift bag with lace tie|
|lilac gift bag with ribbon tie|
4mm crochet hook
ribbon or lace trim
This pattern is written in UK terminology. tc = treble crochet dc = double crochet
Foundation Chain: chain 20
Round 1: 1tc in third chain from hook, 2tc in every second stitch along chain (18sts),
and then continue in the same way along the bottom of the chain, making 2tc in in every other stitch . (36sts in the round).
Join with a slip stitch.
Round 2: chain 3 and make 1tc into the first 2-stitch group, 2tc in each 2-stitch group all around. (36sts). Join with a slip stitch.
Repeat round 2 until the work measures 15cm (or the desired length).
Edging Round: chain 2 then make 4tc in the same stitch, 1dc in each of next 3sts, *5tr in next stitch, 1dc in each of next 3sts repeat from * to the end of the round. Join with a slip stitch.
Darn away ends.
Thread a ribbon or lace through the bag, and tie a bow.
