Pink Picot Gift Bag – Stitch 295

I find it somewhat surprising how quickly I can crochet these small gift bags. I recently sorted through my stash of yarns and realized I had several balls of Bernat Handicrafter ultra soft cotton yarn in French Rose.

I flipped open my book of many stitches and came across #295. It looked like it might work so I thought I would give it a try.  This yarn calls for a 4.5 mm hook, which would be an H hook, but I grabbed a G hook by mistake and stuck with it. Image the base a little wider because of the smaller hook.

Round 1: 8 sc in a magic circle. Sl st to join. Pull the circle tight.

Round 2: ch1, 2 sc in each sc. 16 st. Sl st to join

Round 3: ch 1, *2sc in first sc, sc in next sc, repeat from * to start, sl st to join. 24 sc

Round 4: ch 1, *2sc in 1st sc, sc in next 2 sc, repeat from * to start, sl st to join. 32 sc
Round 5: ch 1, *2sc in 1st sc, sc in next 3 sc, repeat from * to start, sl st to join. 40 sc

Round 6 and 7: ch 1, hdc in each sc, sl st to join.

Now to start this pattern. The picot will consist of ch3 sl st in 3rd ch from hook.

Round 8: ch 1, sc in each st, sl st to join.

Round 9: ch 1, sc in 1st 2 sc,*picot, sc in next 3 sc, repeat from *. You will end with sc in last 2 stitches.

Round 10: Ch6 (counts as tr, ch2), *tr in sc between 2 picot – it will be in the middle sc between the picot- ch2′ repeat from * end with tr in last sc.

Round 11: ch 1, sc in each tr and 2sc in each ch 2 space around whole bag ending with sc in 4th ch of turning chain.

Rounds 12-17: repeat rounds 9-11.

Round 18: ch1, sc in next 10 sc, 25 ch, skip 10 st, sc in next 10 sc, ch 25, skip 10 sc, sc to start of round. Sl st to join.

Round 19: ch1, sc in 1st st, sc in next 9 sc, sc in the 25 ch space. I got 25 sc, sc in next 9 sc, 25 sc in the ch 25 space Sl st to join.

Fasten off and weave in any ends.
Finished project and the left over cotton yarn.
