Another Gift Bag – 207

I had one last empty jar to return to my friend. Please don’t get me wrong. I still have canned items to enjoy. I just don’t have any empty jars. So, using some variegated “mills end yarn” from AC Moore and pattern number 207, I thought I would make 1 last bag for now.  As you can see from the image above, it has shades of blue and green. There were 3 skeins in the 1 pound bag. I decided to use a H hook (5.0 mm)

Magic  circle of 7 sc.

Row 1: 2 sc in each st. Sl st to join. (14 st)

Row 2: Ch 1, *2sc, sc, repeat from *. Sl st to join. (21 st)

Row 3: Ch 1, *2sc, sc, sc, repeat from *. Sl st to join. (28 st)

Row 4: Ch 1, sc around, Sl st to join. (28 st)

Now to start the pattern for this project:

Row 5: Ch 1, sc, *ch 3, skip 3, sc, ch 7, sc, ch 3, skip 3, repeat from * around.Sl st to join.

Row 6: Ch 1, sc in first sc, *skip ch 3 space, 13 dc in ch-7 space, skip ch 3 sp, sc in sc, repeat from *, Sl st to join.

Row 7: Ch 4 (counts as tc), *dc in 6th dc of the 13 dc series, ch 3, dc, ch 3, dc, repeat from *, tc in last st. sl st to join.

Row 8: Ch 3 (counts as dc), * 3 dc in ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in ch 3 space, repeat from *, dc in lst st. Sl st to join.

 

Row 9: Ch 6 (counts as dc, ch 3), *(sc, ch 7, sc) in the ch-3 space, ch 3, dc in between the next 2 sets of 3dc, ch 3, repeat from *, end with dc in last st. sl st to join.

(if you are making something else, you can just repeat rows 6 through 9). Here is what I did:

Row 10: Ch 1, sc in first sc, *skip ch 3 space, 13 dc in ch-7 space, skip ch 3 sp, sc in dc, repeat from *, Sl st to join.

Row 11: Ch 4 (counts as tc), *dc in 6th dc of the 13 dc series, ch 3, dc, ch 3, dc, repeat from *, tc in last st. sl st to join.

Row 12: Row 8: Ch 3 (counts as dc), * 3 dc in ch 3 space, ch 3, 3 dc in ch 3 space, repeat from *, dc in lst st. Sl st to join.

Row 13: Ch 1,*sc in each dc, dc in each ch-3 space, repeat from *, sc in last st. Sl St to join., (28 st)

Row 14: Ch 1, make a 15 stitch chainless foundation chain, skip 12 st, sc in next 3 st, ch 1, make a 15 stitch chainless foundation chain, skip 12 st, sc in next 2 st. Sl st to join. Fasten off.

Weave in any lose ends.

Here is the final project – not my best work for sure.  The pattern is too tall for the jar.
