Craft #16 - Crochet Scrap Bag

Wouldn't it be nice to have a tiny trash bag with you at all times to collect your scraps?  I think it would. :)

Crochet Scrap Bag
This pattern has been posted by Krafty-Lyn.  Please only use it for gifts, donation, or personal use. Thank-you.

Small ball of yarn
Appropriate crochet hook for the selected ball of yarn
Button- instructions written for small button.  Adjusted sizes in parenthesis for  (medium, large) sized buttons.  Use your own judgment.
Needle & thread

With slip knot on the hook, ch 2 more.
Attach to first ch with a ss to form a ring. ch 1
Round 1: 6 sc in ring.
Round 2: 2 sc in each sc around the ring (12 total)
Round 3: 2 sc in each sc around the ring (24)
Following rounds: Decreasing 1st every 3 rows sc around until bag is about 2.5 inches long or you're down to 16 stitches in a round.  I crocheted in the back loops only for a few rows, then in the front loops only through this part of the pattern.

Finishing rounds:
Round 1: In back loops only, sc around.
Round 2: In both loops,  sc half-way around.  Ch 2 (3,4).  Skip 1 (2,3) stitches.  Sc the rest of the way around
Round 3: sc to ch space.  1 (2,3) sc in the space, then continue around.  
Round 4: Reverse sc around. SS to beginning of round. Finish off.  

Attach button to the inside of the bag opposite of the buttonhole space using the needle and thread.

I'll share my pic when it's done of course. :)
