Not that I am an expert in the craft but I like to share my knowledge about crochet when I am able to. Our local library will have a class periodically and I participate just about every time. By the time the class is over I will have made one of these for every member. I love being able to give something so simple to make

This is a great project for a beginner. Not only will you have something that will soon become an important piece of your hobby but you will have made it for yourself. This is a great size for the larger needles. If you think you will be using the steel needles you will have to go a whole other route.

This is such a good idea for a Secret Santa for all of my crochet friends. You know those gifts you have on hand so that when you have someone you were not expecting shows up, you have a gift you can give them. I think this is going to be my go-to gift. I am always having unexpected crafting friends show up, and now I no longer have to stress over what to get them. What a great idea!

ch 21. 20 fsc across... lol :)

I am with the other posting I tried following the pattern and basically ended up with a circle?

i just made the case for crochet hooks and is great thank you for pattern

Why am I unable to print page 2 and 3 of this pattern. When I tell it to print it only prints page 1

Hi Jeanine, We suggest that you go to the page and highlight the text, then right-click on it. You'll get a window that gives you the option to "copy." Do that, and then paste the text into a word document. You should be able print that document that way. Another option is to highlight exactly what you would like to be printed. Then, select print from your dropdown menu, and change your print range from all to selection. --editors of FaveCrafts

I must not be reading this right, but how many chains are in the very beginning? It is not there?

to pmccas3945 8864505. there is no starting chain. the foundation single crochet is the starting row. I hope this helps you.

Ummm, I'm not sure how to "crochet in space between stitches". Would this be like a front post stitch? I'm confused.

A wonderful handy bag you could really use it for anything.... The bag kept my hooks and scissors right by me instead of lost in the string bag.... This is one hundred percent helpful.

Very cute, I need a bag for my hooks and dont want to spend the extra money. Perfect idea!
