Straps
Cut 2 strands of green yarn 28″ long. Lay bag flat with seam directly in back and place two stitch markers one either side of Round 23. This will be where you will put your straps. Thread yarn needle with one of the green strands and weave in and out of the stitches, starting at one stitch marker and ending at the same stitch marker. Do the same with the other strand.

BE CAREFUL when weaving the strands through the stitches not stitch into the other strand or the stitches themselves, or this will keep the bag from cinching properly and ruin your strands.

Crochet Hat Pattern: Pebble Beanie Crochet Pattern

Crochet Hat Pattern: Crocheted Rib Hat by Mielke’s Fiber Arts, LLC . Pattern included. I like this because you don’t have ribs of hat on top of ribs of brim which can become too bulky.
