Project Instructions

    Use a gauge of 13 sc and 14 rows (4 inch) to crochet a bag that measures approximately 6 inch in diameter and 6 inch high, excluding handles. Be sure to check your gauge. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. If it takes you less stitches to match the gauge, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if it takes you more stitches, try a larger size hook or needles.

    Note: Ch 2 at beg of each rnd counts as hdc.
