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.

  1. Hi Hannah, and thanks for your generosity. I give free crochet and craft lessons at a local Returned Services Club on Saturdays, and I will make one of your bags and take to show my class what can be done. Will link them to your site so they can view your patterns - hopefully inspire them to try some out! You are wonderful! Best wishes, Gay McDonald
