Pattern in Pictures: Alternate change purse

less than 3oz of worsted weight yarn
h hook

Ch 4.

9 dc in 4th ch from hook. (first 3 chs count as 1 dc.)

Sl st to top of beginning ch 3. 10 dc total

Ch 3.

dc in same stitch. (counts as 2 dc.)

2 dc in each st around. 20 dc total.

Ch, 3. Working in back loops only, dc in each dc around. (20 dc)

This should make it start to turn into a bowl.

Ch 3 and dc in each dc around. Sl st to top of beginning ch 3 until the bag is as big as you'd like. When you've made it as big as you'd like, ch 4. (this counts as first dc, ch1)

sk next dc. dc in next st. ch1. Repeat around.

sl st to 3rd ch of beginning ch 4.

ch 1, work lazy shell (sc, ch 3, dc) in first st. sk next st. Work lazy shell in next st. sl st to beginning ch 1.

Make the same braid you made for the first bag. Weave it through and you've got yourself a drawstring bag. If you want a bigger bag, just make the bottom bigger. (next row would be 1 dc, 2dc in same st, repeat. following row would be dc 2 times, 2dc in same st and so on and so forth until bottom is wide enough)

The first person to email me a picture of something they've made from one of my patterns gets this bag. :D Send pictures to
