How to crochet my grandma's bag!!







Materials:

worst weight yarn (No4)
- 5.5mm crochet hook
*for my 2nd bag i used macrame cord

start with 9 puffs.
to make the puffs: make a slip knit and then chain 2, *yarn over and insert the hook into the 2nd chain, yarn over and pull through a loop* repeat from * to * two more times. Yarn over, hold the yarn in the base and pull through all loops, insert the hook into the loop you just create, yarn over and pull through a loop, yarn over and pull through all loops, chain 1. Repeat this pattern working on top of each puff until you have 9 puffs. 

Row 1: turn, (*yarn over and insert the hook on top of last puff, yarn over and pull through a loop* repeat from * to * two more times, hold the loops on hook and jump into the next space, *yarn over and insert the hook into the next space, yarn over and pull through a loop* repeat from * to * two more times, hold the loops on hook and jump into the next space, yarn over and insert the hook into the next space, yarn over and pull through a loop* repeat from * to * two more times, arn over, hold the yarn in the base and pull through all loops, insert the hook into the loop you just create, yarn over and pull through a loop, yarn over and pull through all loops, chain 1), repeat this pattern across. To finish the row you have o insert the hook on top of last star, into the next space and into the last chain.

Row 2: turn, make a single puff into the 1st space, and then repeat the same pattern as row 1. o finish the row you have to insert the hook on top of last star, into the next space and into the side space of previous row.

Rows 3 - 16: repeat row 2

Row 17: Repeat row 2 but DO NOT make a single puff into the 1st space, just start working the stars. To finish the row: make the last star working in 2 spaces instead of 3 nd slip stitch into the side space of previous row.

Rows 18 and 19: repeat row 17
