To make the cord, you can either crochet a length of chain with the size F hook, or use this type of technique, if you prefer: Twisted Cord. Add beads to finished cord, if desired.


I made this bag to hold heavier trinkets, so it is designed to be sturdy.

Above Photo: Before being machine washed and dried.

After assembling my bear, I threw it in the wash on a hot/cold cycle, to see if it would felt or not, since I originally started this project as an experiment in felting. I've included before and after photos of the finished bear, so you can decide which look you like the best.

Textured Table Rug

Textured Table Rug

Materials:

size F crochet hook
2 skeins sock yarn

Note: I intended to make a very long table runner to drape over the sides of the table. But since my table is very small, I ended up creating a runner that was just barely too wide, so I fastened off sooner than intended. And instead of attaching the fringe to the starting ch row and final row like I had planned to do, I ended up attaching it to the sides of the piece . It's up to you how you want to make yours, but I thought I should point that out.


Pattern:

Ch 42.
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across. Ch 3, turn (counts as first dc of next row).
Row 2: Skip first st. Dc in each st across. Ch 4, turn (counts as first tr of next row).
Row 3: Skip first st. Tr in each st across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 4: Sc in each st across. Ch 1, turn.
Row 5: *(Sc in next 4 sts, sc in st beneath next st), repeat from * to last 4 sts, sc remaining sts. Ch 4, turn (counts as first tr of next row).
Row 6: Skip first st. Tr in each st across. Ch 3, turn (counts as first dc of next row).
Row 7: Skip first st. Dc in each st across. Ch 3, turn (counts as first dc of next row).
Repeat rows 2-7 until piece measures near to desired length.
Repeat rows 7 and 2 before fastening off.
Add fringe.



Enjoy. =)

An Important Note About Lion Brand Jiffy

In making an amigurumi whale recently, I made the unfortunate discovery that Lion Brand Jiffy yarn can vary in size from one skein to the next. I'd suggest keeping this in mind when selecting a crochet hook to use for this brand of yarn. (I or J seem to work best for me.)

I had to used a smaller hook size for the new whale I made because the newer Lion Brand Jiffy yarn skein I was using wasn't as bulky as the yarn from the skein I based the original pattern off of. It wasn't as soft and fluffy, either... :(

For comparison, I've taken a photo of both whales. The larger whale is the original whale I made when I first designed the pattern. The smaller one is the more recent creation.

I really am hoping that this is just a random fluke and that Lion Brand Jiffy hasn't changed the entire composition of their yarn. But, since I think all but one or two of my patterns use Jiffy yarn at this point, I felt it would be important to point this detail out.



Happy crocheting! :]
