I've become addicted to making these cute little crochet Christmas sacks.
It all started with Sandra's egg cosies. (Yes, more inspiration from her lovely blog!) As soon as I saw them, I thought they would make great little Christmas sacks, so I tweaked the pattern to give them a base.
I've used DK yarn and a size 4 hook. (To convert to UK terms each dc is a treble.)
ROUND 2: ch 3, then 1 dc into same st, 2 dc into next 7 stitches, sl st to join [16 st]
ROUND 3: ch 3, then 1 dc into same st, 2 dc into next 15 stitches, sl st to join [32 st]
You then have 32 stitches to work into, so can revert back to Sandra's pattern, which starts with a 32 stitch chain.
They are so quick and easy to make. They must be as I've made more than one of them - nearly unheard of!
The colours I've used are:
Stylecraft Special DK: Lipstick
Stylecraft Special DK: Spring Green
A random white DK I had
So... you may ask (as the Lumberjack did), what are they for?? Well, I think they'll make great little Christmas favours, filled with a few sweets. They could go on the Christmas table, or make a loop and hang them on the tree. I've got another idea, but I need to see if it works - if so, I'll be sure to show you!
Go on, give them a go - quick, easy and fun!
