Day 12. Brett’s Skull Bag


My children’s godfather and a personal bestie of mine since third grade, requested a slouchy in his favorite colors. Extra slouchy of course. LoVe you Shelbird ❀ Here is what me and him came up with! Brett's skull bag. It's made in twenty rows or less!!!!!!


What you will need.
2colors Red heart super saver(see link below for softening instructions)

Row1: Starting with color a(Orange) ch9, hdc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch so,across(7hdc).
Row2: ch2 turn, in BLO, HDC across(7hdc)
Repeat row2 until desired length. The size pictured is men’s,so my band measures about 30 inches. This is on the larger size. Women’s and teens are about 22inches.
Join both sides with Sc in each sp(you will be drawing up the yarn through two hdc spaces at once.

Skein softening tutorial:

Red heart has always been my favorite. It’s so versatile and it has so many colors to chose from. It is perfect for kids and babies because of its ability to be infinitely washed over and over as well as its amazing durability. It’s no lie that it’s not softest yarn, But there is hope! Check out this awesome yarn softening tutorial HERE by A Girl And Her Needle. You don’t even have to undo the skein to do it!!!! Did I mention you don’t need to make a project to soften the yarn!?!?!?!?!!
