Beaded Shamrock Bag

Specially for St. Patrick's Day, a beaded bag with shamrock drawstrings.

Approximate Time: Less than 2 hours.

Supplies:

  • 2 ounces worsted weight yarn in main color

Before beginning string 72 pony beads on yarn of your choice. I always string 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 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)
