Furry Little Envelope Bag

Lion Brand® Incredible® - Fun Fur®


10 stitches + 12 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in single crochet with 1 strand each A and B held together.

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.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Front and Back – Make 2

With 1 strand each A and B held together, chain 19.

Single crochet in 2nd chain from hook and in each chain across – 18 stitches. Ch 1, turn.

Work even in single crochet until there are a total of 18 rows. Fasten off.


Place Front and Back with right sides together. With B only, slip stitch sides and bottom of Front and Back together, matching rows and beginning chain edge. Fasten off. Turn right side out.

Handles – Make 2

With A only, chain 4. Keeping all loops on hook, draw up a loop in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chains from hook – *4 loops on hook. Yarn over, draw through first loop, (yarn over, draw through 2 loops) 3 times – 1 loop remains on hook. Loop on hook counts as first stitch. Skipping first stitch from row below, draw up a loop in center of each of remaining 3 stitches. Repeat from * until Handle measures 13 inches from beginning. Complete last stitch. Fasten off.

With sewing needle and thread, sew Handles into long tubes; sew ends to inside of Front and Back as pictured. Cut two 7 inches [18 cm] lengths of A. Sew to inside of center top edges for ties; tie in a bow to close Bag.
