    Now that is just too cute!! And practical. I used to put a grocery store type plastic bag on the doorknobs when spring cleaning to collect stuff which belonged in different rooms.

    This is so much better. Thanks for the pattern!!

    Do you have an easy way to print onkly the patterns? Thanks

  7. Carol says:

    It is usually possible to print only what you want to by highlighting (click and drag) the area that you want to print then right In The Area that you have highlighted and select print. Be sure to click Selection before clicking print in the print box. I hope this works for you.

    Thanks, Rachel! You must have designed this with me in mind LOL. I am always losing something that I need to take with me – my keys or my cell, etc.

  9. Deb says:

    Rachel, thanks so much for sharing. This will make great stocking stuffers. I also plan to make some for senior citizens, such as my mom who constantly misplaces her keys. Thanks again.

  10. Nita says:

    This is a great idea, but I need help. At the end of each row, do you sl st in top of ch-3 joining, then ch-3 and turn? There seems to be a missing step or it may be that I’m just not experienced enough. Thanks!

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Nita, for rounds 1 – 15, you sl st in the top of the ch-3 joining to the beginning of the round, but you do NOT turn. You will be crocheting in a circle, since the end of your round meets the beginning of your round. Rounds 1 – 15 creates the pocket shape. In rounds 16 – 21, you DO turn, because at this part the top of the pocket and handle are being made and you will only be crocheting on half (one side) of the pocket. Let me know if you need more help.

    since you start with 33 chain stitches how do you end with 60 dc?

    Hello, I am happy to have found this site. I am retired or a better word deployed. I do whatever it takes to stay busy. Crocheting has always been confusing to me. I can make a scarf but when it comes to reading patterns I am more often than not very confused. I was able to print some of your easier patterns and would like to send a seed offering next month to your group. Are you connected to any groups in my area, Amsterdam, New York, Schnectady New York that I can attend? Thanks for this site and will continue to visit.

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Marina, we’re only an online group at the moment. So feel free visit this website as often as you like 🙂

      • Marina Taylor says:

        Hi Rachel. Thanks for your response. I will take you up on your suggestion to visit you on line when I attempt to making the butterflies.

  13. Marina Taylor says:

    Hello, I am trying to make the doorknob pocket, how is (dc2tog,) done? which begins in row 16? Any takers.

    • Rachel says:

      Hi Marina, if you look under the special stitches section on this pattern there is a link to the tutorial for the dc2tog. Let me know if you need more help with the stitch after looking at the tutorial 🙂

  14. Marina Taylor says:

    Hello, I have done the (ch 33, dc in forth ch from hook and in each ch across, working into opposite side of foundation chain. WHAT do you mean ” into remain loops,” dc in each ch across, sl st in top of ch-3 joining to beginning of round? Is this one flat piece of crocheting then sewing up the sides to create the bag? Please help me understand. Thanks

  15. Marina Taylor says:

    Hi Rachel, thanks and I will give it a try again. I am sure I will be asking another question or two before I am finished. Thanks again.
