Crochet Bowl and Bag Patterns

 I hope everyone is having a great start to the week. I am ready for our big move this coming weekend. Can't wait actually. Here are the patterns for the bowl and little bag. The first one is for the bag. It was super easy. The yarn was dk wt. and I used a 4m hook.
To begin I chained 38. Starting in second ch from hook sc (US) across. 37 sts.
Round 1: ch 1, hdc in next 37 sc, working into the bottom of base, hdc into the bottom of the 37 sc, sl st to first dc: 74 hdc.
Continue in this way until you have 18 rounds, or as tall as you want the bag. When I got to the top I fastened off and wove the ends in to the inside of the bag. If you want to line the bag then cut a pc. of fabric about 1/2 in. wider and longer than the bag. Making a 1/2 in. seam  on three sides. You will then have a little bag to fit into the crochet bag. My finished pc. was 8 inches. I bought a 9 inch zipper and hand sewed it to the lining first, making sure that the inside of the lining was the pretty part.
Then put the lining with the zipper in the bag and hand sew the crochet bag to the edge of the zipper. If your bag, lining and zipper are all the same color you don't have to worry about making perfect stitches. I went around twice so that it would be really strong.
 If you have any questions about this one leave me a comment and I will do my best to help. Hope this little pattern makes sense.
 The bowl was even easier, it has no lining. Lol.
For the bowl I used dk wt. yarn and a 4m hook.
To start make a sliding ring.
Round 1: ch 1, 6 sc in ring, sl st to first sc. (6 sts.)
Round 2: ch 1, 2 sc in each sc around, sl st to first sc. (12 sts.)
Round 3: ch 1, sc in first sc, 2 sc in next sc, sl st to first sc. (18 sts.)
Continue in this way, increasing by 6 sts. in ea. round until you have 18 rounds and 108 sts.
EXAMPLE Round 4 st. pattern is sc in first sc, sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc. (24 sts.)
Round 18 would be sc in first 16 sts, 2 sc in next sc. (108 sts)
For the next round sc in back loops only (this makes a little edge for the bowl.
Round 20: sc in ea. st. around. (108 sts.)
Continue in this way until you get to 35 rows.
To finish I then sl. st. around and then wove in the end into the inside of the bowl.
Again, if you have any questions let me know. I know I am not the best pattern writer.
I hope you enjoy these patterns, I had fun making these little things. I will talk to everyone tomorrow for Tuesday's Tallies.
