As I get together toys for my daughter to enjoy in the future, I’m discovering something pretty obvious: All this stuff needs to be organized!
I started with a simple crocheted mesh bag for those blocks I just made.
Honeycomb Mesh Bag:
Round-by-Round, worked in a continuous spiral:
- 1: ch 4, dc 1 in 4th ch from hook. Ch3, dc in the same stitch you just dc’d in. repeat until there are 6 dc, each with 3 ch separating the dc’s.
- Make 1 dc in the ch-space between the previous row’s dc, as well as one dc in the top of each of the previous row’s dc’s. Do this in every round you want to keep increasing the circular bottom of the bag.
- Once you have the desired bottom diameter, simply dc 1 in each ch-space, and not in the tops of the dc’s. Continue separating each dc with 3 ch.
- For the end, simply ch 3 after the previous dc, and sc the end of the ch into the ch-space. sl 1, cut off of the skein, and weave in ends.
As for the cord, I will explain with a pictorial:
Pull your yarn through all three loops, (basically an hdc) and, ta-da! Nice stretchy cord, no base chain.
