Chiq Hooker Clutch ~ a clutch for your hooks, needles, knooks and other notions

How yummy is this??? I must give the credit of this pattern to the yarn it just spoke to me!

Hello my lovely readers!! I want to start by telling you how much I LOVE your support and kindness! I am blown away by how many people from how many countries read Crochet Chiq!!!

Supplies: 1 ball Loops and Thread's Woodlands yarn or any 2 ply ( fine) weight yarn! Tip 2 strands of Paton's lace looks great too!!
( Want a bigger one? feel free to use any weight and hook you want )
Size G crochet hook
Yes that is my arm!!!! I love the size of this!

This is an advances beginner project, meaning most will find this easy but don't choose until your stitches are consistent. Most crocheters can do this in an evening ( however if it takes you longer DON'T worry we have all be there!! When I was learning I remember I had to always pausing how to videos so I could catch up and what took others a few hours took days and sometimes weeks because of frogging!!!  ( frogging is the act of ripping out your project because you don't like it or you made a mistake)


I worked this pattern in the round., it is very helpful to use a stitch marker, I always use a piece of yarn :)

We start by chaining 27 (if you would like a large bag go ahead and adjust the starting chain to ANY number and follow the rest of the pattern )

Round 1 - 2sc in the first chain 1 sc in each of the next ch, 4 sc on the end chain, 1 sc along the back side of the chain( go around the chain like you are making a circle) put 2 sc in the first chain that had 2sc in it.

Round 2-4 ( or more in crease rows if you want a wider bottom) 1 sc in each except when at the corners put 2 sc in each corner. every round will increase by 4 because of the 2 sc you work in each corner.

Round 5- one sc in each ( DONT increase in the corners any more)

Round 6- skip one stitch , 2hdc in the next stitch, skip one stitch, 2 hdc, Repeat this pattern. until you have the length desires


Flap
Row1- ( notice its a row and not a round) starting at the back corner, 1 sc in each stitch until you get to the other back corner, turn
 Row 2 - 3dc, skip 2, 3dc repeat, turn
Row 3 - 1 sc in each, turn
Row 4- skip 1, chain 3 ( first dc) 3dc, skip 3, *4dc, skip3,4dc* repeat

This is what I put in mine, the hooks, some yarn and a few of my cards to hand out! I will use this at michaels! 

Make your own buttons or use any notions you choose!!

I made my buttons this way

make a magic circle,
Round 1- ch1, ten hdc, and join
Round 2 &3-  ch1, 1 sc in each and join.
Round 4 - 1 sc dec, in each stitch.
cut a long tail and weave your button closed and attach to you clutch!

Every other one***
*turn, slip stitch until you and in the ch1 space, ch2,1hdc,ch1,2hdc* repeat until you have the length desired, * it should stretch slightly to slide on and off your wrist.. **

Christmas spirit Scarf, This yarn and scarf makes me think of the holidays!

This scarf make me want to go out and sing carol with sipping warm apple cider! make it in other colors for other looks! It the white variation it looks sweet and delicate! What color will you make it in?

This is a cute lacy scarf which is extremely quick and easy to make!
I started with a foundation dc here are the instructions in case you need them http://crochetchiq.blogspot.com/2012/07/how-to-crochet-foundation-double.html


 Row 1 - Start with a foundation Dc row of 13 ( if you would like a wider scarf just keep the number odd and you can add as many as you like)

Row 2-turn ch2, 1dc in the first dc, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the next,skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2dc in the next, skip 1, 2 dc in the last dc of the row

Row 3 until the the last row- turn ch 2, 1 dc in the first, *skip 1, 2dc in the next* repeat until the end of the row.
I added fringe, but this also looks great with a ch3 sl border
