Crossed Double Crochet Stitch Soap Bag

This is a pattern I just designed. It is free, all I ask is you give me credit as the designer. Enjoy!





Pattern is worked in the round. I used small amount of cream cotton yarn, and lime green cotton/silk blend and a size E/4 (3.5mm) crochet hook. (You can use any cotton yarn or hook size you like.)

Special stitch: Crossed double crochet: Step 1 Dc into the second st in the row. Step 2 yo and work a second dc into st that was skipped.

To learn how to do a cross double crochet stitch, watch this video from New Stitch a Day

Create a magic circle
Rnd 1`: 8 sc into circle, join in first st, ch1
Rnd 2: Sc 1 into same st as ch1, ch2 in each st around and join
Rnd 3: sc 1 into joining st, 2 sc in next stitch * 1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st* repeat to end and join
Rnd 4: sc 1 into joining st, 1 sc into next 2 st, 2 sc in next st * 2 sc in next 2 st, 2 sc into next st* repeat to end and join
Rnd 5: ch 3, 1 dc into the back loop of each st around and join
Rnd 6: ch 3, dc in st to the right of ch 3, * sk 1, 1 dc, 1 dc in st behind 1st dc* repeat to end and join (you will end up with 2 dc in the joining st)
Rnd 7: repeat Rnd 6
Rnd 8: Attach lime green, ch 1 and sc in each st around and join
Rnd 9: repeat Rnd 5
Rnds 10 & 11 repeat Rnd 6
Rnd 12: ch 1, 1 sc in each st around and join
Rnd 13: ch 4, sk 1, dc, * ch 1, sk 1, dc * repeat around and join
Rnd 14: ch 3, dc in each st around and join.
Rnd 15: ch 3, 2dc in same st, sl st into next st, * 3 dc in next st, sl st into next st * repeat across, join and break yarn.

When you get to the end of Rnd 15 break yarn and weave in the tails. Take a small amount of white cotton yarn and thread through Rnd 13, gather evenly and tie white yarn into a bow.

To my knowledge this pattern is complete and error free. Feel free to share this pattern or sell items made with it. All I ask is that you give me credit as the original designer. Enjoy!
