Next to last Gift Bag (for now) – Number 35

I had one more gift bag to make for my sister. I used Peaches and Creme brand cotton yarn in the colorHampton Twists (No. 03528) and my Takumi 5.00 mm hook  5.00 (H). Here is how it was done:

Start with a magic circle of 5 sc.

increase each row around until you have 25 sc.

Row 1-2: ch 1, sc in each st around. Sl st to join, (25 sc)

Row 2: Ch3 (counts as dc), *ch 3, skip 2 st, sc, dc, repeat from *, sl st to join final dc with ch 3.

Row 3: Ch 3 (counts as dc), *dc in top of ch-3 space, ch 3, dc in top of ch 3 space, dc. Repeat from *. Sl st to join

Row 4: Ch3 (counts as dc), *ch 3, skip 2 st, sc in ch-3 space, dc, repeat from *, sl st to join final dc with ch 3.

Row 5: Ch 3 (counts as dc), *dc in top of ch-3 space, ch 3, dc in top of ch 3 space, dc. Repeat from *. Sl st to join

Row 6: Ch 1, sc around putting sc in each dc and 3 dc in each ch-3 space. add extra sc at end so have 26 st. sl st to join.

Row 7: Ch 1, create a foundation chain of 15, skip 5 st, sc in 6th st, sl st in next 7 st, ch 1, create a foundation chain of 15, skip 5 st, sc in 6th st, sl st to start. Fasten off.

Here is the final project
