Rounding out the trio – Pattern No. 74

Several posts ago, I showed a tote bag that I made for a friend of a friend to thank her for giving me some yarn, which I shared with some of my co-workers.  For my friend the gardner/canner, I have been making more gift bags for her jars. I have made a set of three using the same cotton yarn as the tote bag. This is the 3rd in that set.

I used this pattern, or a similar one, a while back, before I started this little blog of mine. the pattern was adapted slightly to fit this particular project. So I, again used an h-hook and the turquoise cotton yarn purchased in a 1 pound “mills end” bag at AC Moore.

Row 1: Magic circle with 5 sc in it; cl st to join.

Rows 2-5: Increase each round until you have 25 sc around. joining with a sl st at the end.

Rows 6-7: Ch1, sc around, sl st to join (25 st)

Row 8: Ch 3 (counts as dc), dc in each st. around (25 st), sl st to join.
