MAKING WAVES CHART



Begin working over top of navy yarn.
Rounds 5-6: Sc in each st around. (40 sc)
Round 7: *With blue sc 5. With navy sc 3. With blue sc 2. Repeat from * around. (40 sc)
Round 8: *With blue sc 4. With navy sc 5. With blue sc 1. Repeat from * around. (40 sc)
Round 9: *With blue sc 3. With navy sc 2. With blue sc 2. With navy sc 3. Repeat from * around. (40 sc)
Round 10: *With navy sc 1. With blue sc 3. With navy sc 2. With blue sc 2. With navy sc 2. Repeat from * around. (40 sc)
Round 11: *With navy sc 2. With blue sc 5. With navy sc 3. Repeat from * around. (40 sc)
Round 12: *With navy sc 3. With blue sc 3. With navy sc 4. Repeat from * around. (40 sc)
Rounds 13-14: Working over top of blue yarn, with navy sc in each st around. (40 sc)
Cut blue yarn flush (so that no “tail” of yarn is left sticking out).


Rounds 15-28 (14 rounds): Sc in each st around. (40 sc)
Round 29: Working in BLO, sc in each st around. (40 sc)
Now you will begin working in rows instead of rounds.
Row 1: Sc in each of next 21 sc. Ch 1, turn. (21 sc)
Rows 2-9 (8 rows): Sc in each of next 20 sc. Ch 1, turn. (20 sc)
Row 10: In this row you will make the button-holes. Sc in each of next 4 sc, ch 3, skip next 3 sc and sc in next st, sc in each of next 5 sts, ch 3, skip next 3 sc and sc in next st, sc in each of next 3 sts. Ch 1, turn. (14 sc, 2 ch-3 spaces)
Row 11: Sc in each sc, 3 sc in each ch-3 space across. Ch 1, turn. (20 sc)
Row 12: Sc in each sc across. (20 sc)
Fasten off.
Weave in any yarn ends.
Position the buttons and sew them in place.



BELT-LOOP


Row 1: With back of wallet facing you, attach navy yarn in the unworked front loops made in Round 3 and sc 15 sc across – try to center the stitches as much as possible. Ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Sc in each sc across. Ch 1, turn. (15 sc)

Repeat Row 2 until you reach the unworked front loops made in Round 29. For me, this was 24 rows (not including Row 1).

Insert hook into one unworked front loop and then into one stitch on the belt loop, yarn over and make a sl st by pulling up a loop through both sts. Continue until all sts have been worked.



Fasten off. Weave in any yarn ends.

You can now wear the wallet on a belt or make a wrist strap and wear it as a wrist wallet.

Round 15: At this point, I realized I had 88 sts instead of 84. Not sure if I made a mistake or what. If you have 84 sts, work one round sc in each st around. If you have 88 sts, work: *Sc2tog, sc in each of next 20 sts, repeat from * around. If you have a different number than either 84 or 88, just decrease or increase evenly around so that you end up with 84 total.
