Crochet of the Day

Here is something fun to make when you have a free afternoon. I don’t even know what to call this, a coin purse I guess. It’s also good for chap sticks, and other small make-up. I was able to fit my Nokia E72 inside ๐Ÿ™‚

Here is how to make it:

Start with chain 36, then crochet 2 rows of single crochet, adding 6 single crochets in every row. Then crochet 1 row of double crochet, adding 6 again. Crochet 4 rows of double crochet. Then crochet 4 rows reducing the number of crochets by 6 in every row. Your last row should be going over the double crochets with singles. Then follow the scheme and crochet the flap! You are going to start in the middle of any side (at this point you should have about 62 stitches, so divide in half – 31, and in half again – 15. This is where you will start from)

There are instructions in Russian too ๐Ÿ™‚
