Violet Baby Shoes

It's finally done! I've been dying to finished this pattern for everyone. I love making baby shoes, but have stop though because no one is using my baby shoes, for my kids have all grown up and are no longer babies but they will always be my "babies". Then my sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last February and here I am again making beautiful crochet things for our newest bundle of joy.

Yes I know she was born in February and it's already the end of June , and I just posted this pattern today. It's because we've been so busy , from the closing of classes (March in the Philippines), to super full of activities in the summer (April-May) and the opening of classes (June). And in between those months we've moved to our new home. It's not done yet but it is our own now. We've been staying at our Aunt's house for the past 7 years and finally we have a home to call our own.

So that is why this pattern is so past over due. I wish this coming months I'll be able to crochet more and share more.

Crochet V-stitch Bag


At long last my bag is finished. This took a while to finished because I got tangled with other crochet project and I kept forgetting that this bag need to be done also. And I procrastinate so much on sewing the lining. Tip: This bag really needs to be lined. So prepare your cloth for lining and prepare yourself in some hand sewing.

Materials:
  • Red Heart Super Saver ( White and  Blue)
  • H/5.0mm  Crochet Hook
  • Tapestry Needle
  • Stitch Markers
  • Cloth for lining
  • Needle and Thread for Sewing

Size:


Stitches Used:
  • CH(s) - chain (s)
  • SC - single crochet
  • HDC - half double croceht
  • DC - double crochet
  • SL ST - slip stitch
  • SC dec - single crochet decrease

Instructions:

Row 1. CH 41, HDC in the 2nd chain from the hook,HDC in next 39 stitches. Ch 1 and turn (40 HDC)

Row 2-4. HDC in each 40 stitches. CH 1 and turn. (40 HDC)

After  Row 4 we will continue working in ROUNDS this time.

Round 1. HDC in the side of the last HDC you just made. HDC in each side of row 3, 2, and 1 until you reached the other side of the foundation CH and start crocheting each stitch with HDC. Continue until on the other side of the rows.  Join with a SL ST in first st of Row 4. (88 HDC)

Round 2. CH 1, HDC in each stitch around (88 HDC).

Round 3. CH 2, DC in first stitch, *skip 1 stitch then 2 DC in next*. Repeat this pattern all the way around (44 v-stitches)

Round 4. CH 2, DC in first st, * 2 DC in between the 2 DC of previous round* Repeat all the way around (44 v-stitches)

Round 5-22.  Repeat Round 4.  Fasten off and weave all ends.

Let's start making the handle. 

Round/ Row 23.  Count 10 v-stitch  then start making a v-stitch (2 DC) in the 10th v-stitch. Make 22 v-stitches across, change color, CH 2 and turn.

Round/Row 24. Slip stitch in between the last v-stitch of the previous row. CH 2, v-stitch in the next v-stitch until the 2nd to the last v-stitch. In the last v-stitch just do 1 DC. change color, CH 2 and turn ( 20 v-stitch and 1 DC/CH2 in each end.)

Row 25 - 27. Repeat Row 24 until you end up with only 14 v-stitches and 1 DC/starting CH2 in each end of the row.

Row 28-38.  CH 2, v-stitch in first v-stitch until end. DC on top of  CH2  of previous round.  CH2 and turn. DO NOT CHANGE COLOR (this rows should be all white.) 14 v-stitches, 1 DC/CH2) in each end of the row. You can continue to work more if you want your bag to be longer.

Row 45-? Repeat row 44 until your desired length.

Do this pattern also in the other side of the bag. Except in Row 23 you don't need to count 10 v-stitches anymore. Just continue to work on the next free stitches.

Join the two ends of the handle by either wip stitch or single crocheting them both.
