Granny Square Market Bag


Materials Needed:



Summary:


You can really use any granny square to do this.  It doesn’t have to be the same size or style as mine.  The idea is to make a large granny square, then cinch the top and bottom a lot and the sides a little less.  So if you are using a granny square you already have or one that’s different in size, just follow from row 24 on.  The chain 80 is for the straps, so you can adjust those on your preference. 


Abbreviations:


st = stitch

ch = chain

sc = single crochet

dc = double crochet

sl = slip stitch

hhdc = herringbone half double crochet

Pattern:


Row 1: ch 4, sl in 1st ch to form a ring.  Ch 3(counts as stitch), 2dc, ch2, *3dc ch2* repeat from * until you have 4 clusters of dc, sl to top of ch3.



Row 2:  sl st to the corner ch2 space. Ch3 (counts as stitch), 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch1 in the corner space.  *In the next ch2 space 3dc, ch2,3dc, ch 1* and repeat from * until you reach the ch3 and slip stitch to the top.


Row 3-23: sl st to the corner ch2 sp. Ch3  (counts as stitch), 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch1  in the corner space.   In the next ch1 space 3dc ch1, then next ch2 space 3dc ch2 3dc and continue around until you reach the ch3 and slip stitch to the top.




Row 24: sl st to corner.  Ch 1 (does not count as stitch) sc in ch2 sp and place marker, you are now working in the round.  Sc in each stitch around, skipping the ch1 sp.  When you get to a corner ch2 sp, 2 sc in ch2 sp.  When you reach the end of the round back at the ch2 sp you started with, 1sc (so there’s now 2sc in the corner) to finish the row (71st per side, 284st).


Row 25: 1 sc in first st in the corner, *sc2tog, 1 sc1* repeat from * until you reach the corner. 1sc in each st in the corner (2st) and then repeat from * until you reach the next corner, 1sc in each st in the corner (2st) and then continue in this fashion for the 2 other sides ending with 1sc in the last corner st. (48st per side, 192st).



Row 26: *sc3tog across until you reach the corner, once you rotate at the corner, 1sc in each st down the side until you reach corner* repeat from * for the next 2 sides. (shorter sides are 16st, longer sides are 48st, a total of 128 st)



Row 27-28:  hhdc in each st around (st)


Row 29: *ch 80 (place marker in 1st ch) and 1sc in next corner to reattach, sc in each st until next corner* repeat from * for the next to sides ( st)


Row 30-34: sc in each st around. (st)


Fasten off, weave in the end.  


Optional Pocket:


Row 1: ch 4, sl in 1st ch to form a ring.  Ch 3(counts as stitch), 2dc, ch2, *3dc ch2* repeat from * until you have 4 clusters of dc, sl to top of ch3.



Row 2:  sl st to the corner ch2 space. Ch3 (counts as stitch), 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch1 in the corner space.  *In the next ch2 space 3dc, ch2,3dc, ch 1* and repeat from * until you reach the ch3 and slip stitch to the top.


Row 3-6: sl st to the corner ch2 sp. Ch3  (counts as stitch), 2dc, ch2, 3dc, ch1  in the corner space.   In the next ch1 space 3dc ch1, then next ch2 space 3dc ch2 3dc and continue around until you reach the ch3 and slip stitch to the top.



After row 6 (or desired size) fasten off but leave a long tail.  Line up the new granny square with your bag where you want it to go. Use stitch markers to hold it where you want it, then sew it on.  You could also sew it to the inside instead of the outside.

A Batty Tablet Stand Pillow

It's hard to find yarn projects that work for men! I needed a nice Father's Day gift, so I thought a tablet stand pillow would be a good idea! I also wanted it to have a bat on it, for you know, batty reasons. This was my first time both making a graph and working from a graph, but it came out better than expected. If you're no so into bats, you could also just skip the graph and do a solid color, stripes, or even a different graph of your own liking. So here's what I did: You will need: Less than a skein of black  Worsted Weight Yarn , but you will use most of it. I used Red Heart Super Saver . Less than a skein of yellow  Worsted Weight Yarn , you won't use that much of it. I used something I had already that didn't have a label on it anymore.

(90 st). Place Marker. Row 2 - 4: Work in rounds, using your stitch marker at the end of each row to keep count.  Sc in each st (90 st) until the end of the round. Row 5: *Dc in next stitch, Fpdc in
