Pad Wallet V2
Hey howdy hey peeps!
Another instalment of the sanitary cozies. This one looks a little like a mini handbag (you could always attach handles) and will hold 2 thick pads (or a heap of small ones). It takes a little longer then some of the other ones but its well worth the effort.
You will need:
DK (8ply) yarn in 2 colours for the top flap, and 1 colour for the bag.
With a 3mm hook:
R1: ch8, join to form a loop, ch2, dc 23 times in the loop, join to top of ch2
R2: ch2, dc in the next 2 stitches, ch3, *dc in the next 3 stitches, ch 2* Repeat around, join.
R3: sl st in any ch3 space and sc, *ch4, hdc3tg, ch4, sc in the next ch3 space* repeat around ending with a sl st to the first sc.
Finish off weaving in all ends.
With main colour and a 4mm hook:
R1: hdc in the 2nd chain from hook and each across to the second last ch, 2hdc in the last chain, then on the opposite side, working in the same chains, hdc in each ch back to the start, join.
R2-8: ch2, hdc around, join. (40)
R9: ch2, *hdc in the next 3 stitches, hdc2tg* Repeat around.
R10: ch2, hdc in each stitch around, join
R11: ch2, *hdc in the next 3 stitches, hdc2tg* Repeat around, join
End off main colour and weave in all ends.
Position the doily flap over the top opening so that the centre of the circle is over the centre of the opening. Sew the back side of the flap to the wallet. Leave the other side free. Attach button and your done!
