Post Stitch Cuddle Sac

Here is the pattern for the Post Stitch Cuddle Sac as promised.  I finished it last night.
Fpdc - front post dc stitch.
Row 1: Chain 5 and join to first chain.  Chain 3, 11 dc in circle.  (12 dc)

Row 2:  Chain 3, dc in same st, *2 dc in next st.* around.  End join to top of ch 3.  (24 dc)

Row 3: Chain 3, Fpdc in next dc, *2 dc in next stitch, Fpdc in next st*. around.  Join to top of ch 3.  (36 dc)

Row 4: Chain 3, *Fpdc in next fpdc, 2 dc in next st 1 dc in next st* around.  (48 dc)

Row 5 to row 25: Repeat row 4.

Row 26 & 27: Ch 3. Do a decrease dc on next two st. Dc in each stitch until last 3 st.  In next 2 st do decrease dc, dc in last st.  Turn.

Row 28:  Sc around top of row and around front v.  Join with a sl st.  Cut and hide tails.  Fold down corners on front only.  Make a chain of 150 ch, hiding ends.  Weave chain in and out on the 24th row, grabbing the corner of each section that is folded down.  Ribbon can also be used.

For hat follow sac pattern for 11 rows.  Row 12:  Ch 2, Sc around, end by joining to top of ch 2.  Tie off, and hide tails.

This is also a very easy pattern.  Hat measures 4 1/2 inches, sac measures 10 1/2 inches.  I used Bernat Softee Baby Yarn, # 3 Lite, 4.25 oz skein, with a size G or 6 crochet hook.   You can use the first three rows and make any pattern on this.  Just remember we are still looking for help making items.

Have a good one.....Nan
