Tampon Bag V3

Good morning lovlies!

Today I have a neat little bag for tampon storage (or for anything else). Something a bit different from the wallets. This little bag features a drawstring and a knit look stitch, and depending on your hook size can hold from 4-8 tampons. I used Carefree.

You will need
3mm hook (4mm hook for medium sized bag, 5mm for large)
DK (8ply) weight yarn in main colour and a small amount of contrasting colour.

R1: ch3, 14dc in the 1st chain, join
R2: ch2, 2hdc in each stitch around, join.
R3: ch1, hdc blo around

R4+: hdc in the 3rd loop (the back back loop) of each stitch around, this pushes the front two loops forward and creates a knit look. Do not join, just continue around until the piece measures 5-6cm long. sl st in the next stitch.

R5: ch2, dc in each stitch around, join.
R6: Repeat R5

End off, weave in all ends.

In a contrasting colour chain 70. Weave the tie in and out of every second stitch on R5.
