Make-it-Monday ~bean bag~

AHH this post is SO late sorry sorry sorry.

You’ll need

  • a size F hook
  • yarn
  • whatever you want to stuff it with (I used pony beads, but i think large beans would work too)
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle

Rnd 1: Leaving a long tail for sewing later, use magic ring method to sc 6 into ring & tighten.

Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc, setting a stitch marker (or a safety pin) on first stitch. (12 st)

(from here on out, set a stitch marker on the 1st stitch of every round. this is worked in a spiral, so rounds aren’t joined)

Rnd 3: *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from * to * till end of round (18 st)

Rnd 4: *sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from * to * till end of round (24 st)

Rnd 5: *sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc* repeat from * to * till end of round (30 st)

Rnds 6-11: sc in each sc around (30 st)

Rnd 12:*dec over next 2 st, sc in next 3 st* repeat from * to * till end of round (24 st)

Rnd 13: *dec over next 2 st, sc in next 2 st* repeat from * to * till end of round (18 st)

Rnd 14: *dec over next 2 st, sc in next st* repeat from * to * till end of round (12 st)

Rnd 15: (it’s a little fiddly doing this last round with it full of beads) *decrease over next 2 st* repeat from * to * till end of round (6 st)

Finish off and cut yarn to leave a long tail.

Sew the opening closed with the tail, and be sure to knot it up really tight.

Pull the tail all the way through the bean bag and snip off from the other side (so you have a short tail stuck inside the middle)

And you have it!
