ABBREVIATIONS

Star st (Star Stitch): Ch3, insert hook into 2nd ch from hook, yrh and pull up loop, insert hook into 3rd ch from hook, yrh and pull up loop, skip st at base of beg ch-3, (insert hook in next st, yrh and pull up loop) 3 times, yrh, pull through all 6 loops on hook, ch1 to create centre of star, *insert hook into centre of star, yrh and pull up loop, insert hook through last loop of previous star, yrh and pull up loop, insert hook in same space as last loop of previous star, yrh and pull up loop, (insert hook in next st, yrh and pull up loop) twice, yrh and pull through all 6 loops on hook, ch1 to create centre of star, repeat from *.

NOTES

The base of the bag is worked using the amigurumi method. Work in a continuous spiral without closing off each round with a slip stitch. You may find it helpful to place a marker in the first st of each round and move it up as you work.

When working Star stitch rounds, change colour in the yrh of each ss at the end of the round, leaving the previous colour at the back of your work to pickup later.
