Craft Project: Suzie's Beaded Easter Bag

Cute little drawstring bag for Easter.

Approximate Time: 2 hours

Supplies:

  • 2.5 ounces worsted weight yarn
  • 72 pony beads
  • size US I crochet hook
    Ad
  • tapestry needle

Instructions:

Read all instructions through before beginning.

Note: Always pull your slipstitches tight.

Before beginning, string 72 pony beads on yarn of your choice. I always sting on a few extra, just in case I mess up on my stitch count and need another bead or two.

Round 1: Chain 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Join with slip stitch in first sc. Pull slip stitch tight, until it almost disappears. (6 sc)

Round 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each stitch around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (12 sc)

Round 3: Ch 1, (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc) around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (18 sc)

Round 4: Ch 1, (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 2 sc) around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (24 sc)

Round 5: Ch 1, (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 3 sc) around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (30 sc)

Round 6: Ch 1, (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 4 sc) around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (36 sc)

Round 7: Ch 1, (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 5 sc) around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (42 sc)

Round 8: Ch 1, (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next 6 sc) around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (48 sc)

Round 9: Ch 1, sc in each sc around. Join with slip stitch in first sc. (48 sc)

Round 10: Ch 2 (don't count as hdc), hdc in same stitch as join and each stitch around, skip ch 2 and join with slip stitch in first hdc. (48 hdc)

Round 11: Ch 2, hdc in same stitch as join and each stitch around, skip ch 2 and join with slip stitch in first hdc. (48 hdc)

Round 12: Ch 2, hdc in same stitch as join. Yarn over, move up one bead to the hook, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull yarn through. You should now have three loops on your hook, with the bead on the middle loop. Yarn over and pull through all three loops. You just completed an hdc bead stitch. *Hdc in next st, hdc bead st in next st,* repeat around. Join with a slip stitch in first hdc. (24 beads)

Ad

Round 13: Ch 2, hdc in same stitch as join, hdc in ch 1 over each bead and in each hdc around, skip ch 2 and join in first hdc. (48 hdc)

Round 14: Ch 2, hdc in same stitch as join, hdc in each hdc around, skip ch 2 and join with slip stitch in first hdc. (48 hdc)

Rounds 15-20: Repeat rounds 12-14 twice.

Rounds 21-23: Ch 2, hdc in same st as join and each st around. Join with slip stitch in first hdc. (48 hdc)

Round 24: Ch 1, sc in same stitch as join and each hdc around. Join with a slip stitch in first sc. (48 sc)

Round 25: Ch 1, sc in same st, ch 3, (skip 1 sc, sc in next sc, ch 3) around, ending ch 1, hdc in top of first sc. (24 loops)

Round 26: Ch 1, sc in loop formed by ch 1, hdc, *slipstitch in next sc, 3 sc in ch 3 loop, repeat from * around. End with slipstitch in sc, 2 sc in loop. Join with slip stitch in first sc.

Fasten off weave in ends.

Drawstrings

First Egg: Ch 5

Round 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, 5 dc in last ch, (after 3 of the 5 dc work over the tail for the rest of this round). Working in the unused loop of the beginning ch, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, 2 sc in last ch. Join with a slipstitch in top of first sc. Remember to pull that slipstitch tight so it almost disappears. (12 sts)

Round 2: Ch 1, sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next 6 sts, sc in last 3 sts. Join with a slipstitch in top of first sc. (18 sts)

Ch 90, DO NOT fasten off.

Second Egg:

Round 1: 3 dc in 3rd chain from hook, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, 2 sc in next ch. Okay this is the trick, *pull the loop on the hook up large enough to pass the ch and completed first egg through, tighten the loop around hook and chain*. Sc in the same ch, work on opposite side of ch in unused loops, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, 2 dc in same ch as the beginning 3 dc. Join with a slipstitch in top of first dc. (12 sts)

Round 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in next 4 sts, sc in next 3 sts. Repeat instructions between the * in round 1. Sc in next st, 2 sc in next 3 sts. Join with a slipstitch in top of first sc. (18 sts)

Fasten off weave in end, yep only one end, if you crocheted over the beginning end.
