EASY TO MAKE
Using the J hook and Red Heart Designer Sport yarn, chain 16.
Row 1: Single crochet in the second chain from the hook and across. 15 single crochet stitches made. Chain 1 and turn.
Row 2: Single crochet in the first stitch and across. 15 single crochet stitches made. Chain 1 and turn.
Repeat row 2 twenty-two more times. On the last row do not chain one or turn; instead, finish off.
Make two pieces with above directions. Place them together, right sides facing out. Join pieces by attaching yarn with a slip stitch on the top left side. Working through both thicknesses, do a single crochet in the same stitch and continue single crocheting down the side. At the corner do 3 single crochets and then continue single crocheting along the bottom. At the next corner do 3 single crochets, then continue single crocheting up the other side. Add an extra single crochet on the top stitch. Do not finish off. Chain 120 for the handle and, being careful not to twist the chains, connect to the other side with a slip stitch. Do not finish off.
