Plastic Bag Holder


So I just finished moving into my new apartment. Two of my roommates are knitters and one is not. After only a few Walmart trips we managed to accumulate a large number of plastic grocery store bags and one of the knitters said to me, "You need to crochet us a plastic bag holder because you can crochet faster than we can knit. "(which is true and yet another reason crocheters are cooler than knitters) So I look at other patterns and came up with a hybrid.

Plastic Bag Holder

5 oz of worsted weight yarn (I used 2 skeins of Peaches and Cream cotton)
size G hook
yarn needle

R1: Ch 44 and join with sl st to first ch
R2: Ch 3 (this counts as a dc throughout pattern) dc in each ch around join with sl st to 3rd chain throughout pattern
R3:-Eyelet row- Ch 4 skip first dc and dc in 2nd dc of previous row *ch 1 dc in 2nd dc* repeat around and join
R4:Ch 3 and dc in each dc and ch 1 space of previous row and join
R5:Ch3 and dc in each dc around and join
Repeat row 5 until desired length
repeat R3 -eyelet row-
repeat R4
sc in each dc around and join
From joining sl st make a chain of desired length for a handle then join to opposite side of top row using a few sl st.tie off and weave in ends
to make the ties that go through the eyelet rows you can either make a chain of the yarn the desired length and weave it through the eyelets or ribbon.
