Knit Or Crochet Plastic Bag Keeper

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton

GAUGE:

CROCHET: 17 sc = about 4 in. (10 cm).
KNIT: 16 sts = about 4 in. (10 cm).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Knit Or Crochet Plastic Bag Keeper Reviewed by Brandi on 2012-03-24 *****
I really like this pattern. It is easy to follow and it was pretty quick to make. I used one solid color and it still turned out really pretty. I will use this pattern when I make these for my friends and family because it is so simple and fast to make.
