It has only been a few days since I came up with this pattern, but because I was struck down with a vicious cold, it seems like it has taken me forever to type it up for you guys. I am feeling better, and am enjoying a nice cuppa while writing this post.
This is by far my favorite yoga mat bag that I have made...so much so, that I am keeping this blue one for myself!
You will need:
7 ounces/ 240 yards of worsted weight yarn
5.0 mm crochet hook
ch - chain
sl st - slip stitch
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
Row 1: hdc in second ch from hook and in each ch across (7hdc)
Row 2: ch 1, sc in first st, skip 2 stitches, 7 dc in next stitch, skip two stitches, sc in last stitch
Row 3: ch 6 (counts as first dc and chain 3), sc in 4th dc of 7dc cluster from previous row, ch 3, dc in last sc
Row 4: ch 1, sc in first stitch, 7 dc in sc from previous row, sc in 3rd chain from turning chain of previous row
Repeat rows 3 & 4 until you have 16 total fans (7dc clusters), end with a row 3
Last Row: ch 1, hdc in first stitch and in next 6 stitches across, fasten off (7hdc)
Round 1: 8 hdc in second ch from hook, sl st into first hdc (8hdc)
Round 2: ch 1, 2 hdc in each stitch, sl st into first hdc (16 hdc)
Round 3: ch 1, (1 hdc in first stitch, 2 hdc in next stitch) repeat 7 times, sl st into first hdc (24 hdc)
Round 4: ch 1, (1 hdc in first two stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch) repeat 7 times, sl st into first hdc (32 hdc)
Round 5: ch 1, (1 hdc in first 3 stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch) repeat 7 times, sl st into first hdc (40 hdc)
Round 6: ch 1, (1 hdc in first 4 stitches, 2 hdc in next stitch) repeat 7 times, sl st into first hdc (48 hdc)
Round 7: ch 1, sc in same space, *skip two stitches, 7 dc in next stitch, skip two stitches, sc in next stitch* repeat from *to** around ending with a 7dc cluster and sl st into first sc
Round 8: ch 6 (counts as first dc and ch 3), *sc in 4th dc of 7dc cluster, ch 3, dc in next sc, ch 3** repeat from *to** around ending with sc in top of 7dc cluster, sl st into 3 ch of beginning chain 6
Round 9: ch 3 (counts as first dc), 6 dc in same space, *sc in sc from previous round, 7dc in dc from previous round** repeat from *to** ending with sc in last sc, sl st into 3rd ch from beginning ch 3
Repeat rows 8 & 9 until bag measures about 25" (or long enough to accommodate your yoga mat). I also ended with a row 9 repeat, so my bag has a pretty scalloped edge.
I hope you guys enjoy this pattern!
