Rainbow Scarf – Free Pattern

 

I was hunting through my yarn stash and found this lovely variegated skein. I was wanting to watch TV, so I needed to create something simple. I used one of my “go to” stitches, and by the time my show was over I had this beautiful scarf. Hope you like it. I’ve written down the instructions so you can make your own.

Small shoulder bag-Free crochet pattern

I have been carrying around my essentials in a small handbag. I hate anything bigger because it gets so cumbersome when I’m working or shopping. Just the basics for me! My little handbag that I’ve been carrying for years finally fell apart, literally, and I have been forced to find a replacement. Since I’d rather crochet than shop, I decided to make my own.

This bag was created by me to carry my cell phone and other small essentials such as my keys, credit cards and driver’s license. Finished size is 5 1/2″ x 6 1/2″. Strap is 20″ long. Pattern is easily adjustable to any size you wish. adjustable to any size you wish.
Abbreviations used in this pattern: ch – chain sc – single crochet st – stitch sk – skip blsc – back loop single crochet ss – slip stitch flsc – front loop single crochet hbhdc – herringbone half double crochet [note: If any of these stitches are unfamiliar to you simply do a search on You Tube. There are lots of great step by step tutorials there.]
Yarn: Worsted weight cotton. I used I Love This Cotton in color Old Leaf. Crochet Hook: size J or hook size to obtain gauge 4 stitches and 4 rows per inch. Gauge is not important for this project. Just adjust number of stitches and rows to obtain desired size.
Pattern: flsc in top of each blsc, and blsc in top of each flsc alternately.
Purse: Starting at bottom, ch 21. Sc in second ch from hook and each ch across (20 sc). 3 more sc in last ch, sc in the bottom of each ch, ending with 3 sc in bottom of first ch (44 sc) That’s 4 sc in each end st and 2 sts (1 top and 1 bottom) in each of the remainder. Ss in first st to join. Do not turn.
Sc in front loop only of next sc (flsc), sc in back loop of same sc (blsc). You now have 45 sc per row. *Flsc in next sc, blsc in next sc* repeat from * to * in pattern in continuous rounds until desired height is reached.
Sample has 27 rows. Ss in next stitch to join and fasten off. Weave in ends.
For strap: Leaving a small length of yarn for sewing, ch 81 (or any number of ch for desired length). Sc in second ch from hook and each ch across (80 sc). Ch 2 turn.
Sk first st (ch 2 counts as a st), hbhdc in each st across. Fasten off leaving a bit of yarn for sewing to purse. Attach to purse on either side.
Finishing: Ss yarn to top of purse just right of center of one side, ch 10 and ss to top of purse just left of center of same side. Attach button 10 and ss to top of purse just left of center of same side. Attach button of your choice to top center of other side to keep your purse closed.
