16oz. Water Bottle Carrier

I used a G hook and Lilys sugar and cream or peaches and cream cotton, it won’t stretch as much, but you can use red heart super saver, it will just stretch a bit.

Rnd 1) ch 2, 10 double crochet in 2nd ch from hook, slip st to first double crochet.
Rnd 2) ch 2 ( this did not count as my first double crochet) 2 double crochet in each st around, sl to first double crochet
Rnd 3) ch 2, double crochet in same st, 2 double crochet in next st, double crochet in next st around, sl st to first dc

Rnd 4) ch1, sc in same st and around in back loop for this row, sl to first sc

Rnd 5) ch 1, sc in same st, ch2 skip next st, sc in next st around.
Rnd 6-14) sl st into ch2 space, ch1, sc in same st, * ch2 sc in next ch2 space, repeat from * around.
Rnd 15) ch1, sc in each sc and ch2 space around,
Rnd 16) ch1, sc around
For a strap, I just made a ch, for however long depending on the person intended for, and then hdc on both sides of ch for a couple of rounds. Happy crocheting
I am sharing this with you for your own personal use, gifting or selling the products is fine. But please don't sell the pattern. And please link to my page when posting. Thanks

Well I got the second kid down for pictures. I would like to do the little one next, but she is too small for the outfit, will think of something different. But here is my Meagan dressed up like Laura Ingalls!

Getting a little bit away from the knitting today, I had my oldest dress up and followed her around the lawn. Here are a few of the shots we did. Even the Cat had to get into the mix. She had lots of fun and I will have to do some with the other two girls. But it started to rain and we had to get done. So more to come later.

Working on some edits today, playing with my new program. It's very addicting. But here are some things I have done during the rainy day.

Pirate Patch Pattern

I used a G hook and ww yarn

This has not been tested yet, let me know if you find any mistakes, or an easier way.
This took all of maybe 10 min to make.Here is the simple pattern, let me know if this is not clear, I’m not good at writing them up.
Ch 12, hdc in second ch from hook and accross. ch1 turn,
Row 2: Hdc in first st and in each st accross. ch1 turn
Row 3: Hdc dec over first two stitches, hdc accross to last two stitches, hdc dec over last two stitches, ch1 turn
Row 4: and 5 repeat row 3. fasten off.
For the strap I ch about 60 and hdc accross and attached to each side of patch. Weave in ends
This was made for an 8 yr old, but you can easily adjust for the strap. Enjoy

Just getting started.

It's a rainy day in Maine and I am just getting started. So bare with me as I get this set up. :o)
