Today I’m over at Skip to My Lou as part of the Bake Craft Sew & Crochet Along. I am sharing the pattern for my Cuddlebug Scoodie, perfect for holiday gift giving to your favorite toddler. In fact, you won’t want to miss all the handmade gift ideas! I have joined over 100 bloggers to share some amazing homemade gift ideas…….
I’ve posted my pattern for a new project, the Cuddlebug Scoodie, over on Skip to My Lou. So, just click this link, or the picture below to see the pattern!
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.
