Hook- size H/8 (5mm)
large eye yarn needle
Gauge: 17 sts= 4" in pattern stich
17 rows= 4" in pattern stitch
* sc in frount loop only of next ts, then sc in back loop only of next st, repeat from * all the way across, chain one, turn.
To begin: ch 51. sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across (50 sc) ch 1, turn.
Working on these sts, start Pattern Stitch and continue until you have completed 12".
End yarn by drawing tail through last st and weaving ends.
Work as for the fount.
ch 6, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch across (5 sc) ch 1, turn.
keeping in sc, work on these sts until piece measures 16". end yarn by drawing tail through last st and weving ends.
Weave in any loose yarn ends.
With right sides facing each other, place the front and back pieces together. Sew together with matching color yarn.
Sew on handles. If desired, add ribbon to inside of handles to create a sturdy handle that wont stretch with use.
CELL PHONE CASE:
ch 11, turn.
SC in second st from hook and across, ch 1, turn. (10 sc)
Working in PATTERN STITCH, continue until desired length (mine was six inches) and finish off. Sew onto handle of bag. I'm left handed so i sewed it onto the right handle on the left side.
MP3 PLAYER CASE:
Really, this is just a compartment on the inside.
CH 6, turn
SC in each st across, (5 sc) ch 1, turn.
I used the PATTERN STITCH until it was about 4 inches, fastoned off and sewed it to the inside of the bag on the left corner.
I know its not perfect, and its really simple, but it works. You can line it or felt it if desired. hope you enjoy.
* this is rather delayed as I wrote this pattern awhile back, but I havnt had much time to do anything. Well, thats not true either. I've just been lazy. So, HUGE thanks to Tami for testing it for me, and all my friends at the 'ville. *

The first three people to comment will get something fibery from me!
The catch is that you must repost this on your blog and offer the same to the first 3 people who do the same on your blog. The first 3 people to do so and leave a comment telling me they did, win a fibery gift - yarn or roving. You might want to include info on whether you are a knitter/crocheter or spinner.
Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! Who’s in?
