Sooo….I am not that great at reading patterns, I get confused and lost. This pattern was no exception. I started fine but then I couldn’t understand what the pattern was telling me to do next. So I did my own thing.
I will list my pattern that I came up with but I’ll warn you, it’s tedious and probably the long way of completing it but it worked for me!
Here is what I did:
Row 1: 40 sc, turn
Row 2-35: ch 1, 40 sc, turn
It should look like a big square
I changed colors and after I attached my cc to the middle of the square on the left side (I eyeballed the middle)
4 sc, ch 1, turn
repeat this pattern until the strip is the length of the square, it will look like this
Next, you just flip the strip over the square like this
Then I just grabbed my needle and thread to match the cc (tan) (here is the tedious part) and I sewed down my strip onto my square to secure it, I sewed both the top and the bottom of the strip.
Next I added the shell design as the pattern had but I added mine all the way around the square.
To do the shell:
start on any corner and do 5 dc, sk 1 sc, sl st into the next sc. then repeat all the way around.
It should look like this:
I don’t weave my ends, I sew all my ends down once I am finished.
You then insert your hooks into the strip in the middle 🙂
To close your hook holder, just roll it up and I decided to add two buttons to mine instead of a ribbon as the pattern suggested.
I secured my buttons with pink thread to match the pink yarn. Then for the button holders. I attached my cc again (tan) and ch 6 and sl st it to the base and sewed my ends in place.
I hope I explained this well. Let me know if you have any questions!
Thanks and enjoy!
