Easy Peasy Straw Cover
Small amounts of Paton’s Grace, but any #3 Light Weight Yarn will work
Size D/3.25mm hook (I crochet very tightly, so you may use a B or C)
MC – Magic Circle (Magic Loop, Magic Ring)
beg – beginning
sc – single crochet
ch – chain
BLO – Back Loop Only
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
slst – slip stitch
FO – fasten off
Start by working 7sc into a Magic Circle. HERE is a great pic and video tutorial for the magic circle if you don’t know how to do one. Slst to join in beg sc.
Round 1: ch 1, in BLO, hdc in each stitch around. Slst to join to beg hdc. [at this point I sew on the flower, because it’s easier now than later]
Round 2: ch 1, hdc in each stich around for 21 stitches. (be sure to skip the ch 1 from the beginning of this round.) Slst in the next st.
Round 3: ch 35, hdc in 8th ch from hook and in each ch back to the first one. FO. Weave in end.
That’s it! I added a flower to mine, but you can do anything! Here’s the pattern for the flower I used:
Work 5sc into a MC, join with a slst to beg sc. FO
Attach petal color and *ch 3, 2dc ch 3, slst in same st. Slst in next st.* Repeat from * to * around in each st. FO leaving a long enough tail to sew flower onto top of straw cover.
