NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
Beg piece with this technique (instead of ch-ring) to avoid hole in the middle. Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the yarn over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull yarn through loop, ch 3 (counted as 1st dc), then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop and hole in the middle. Fasten the yarn end at the back of piece.

CROCHET INFO:
Beg every dc round with 3 ch (= 1 dc). Finish round with 1 sl st in 3rd ch from beg of round.

DC-GROUP:
Work 1 dc in ch-space but wait with last YO and pull through, work next dc in same ch-space but wait with last YO and pull through, work next dc and pull last YO through all 4 sts on hook (3 dc are now worked tog into 1 dc-group).

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog, i.e. work 1 dc but wait with last YO and pull through. Work next dc but now pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook.

STRIPES BAG:
Work stripes in dc-groups as follows:
3 rounds with 1 strand raspberry + 1 strand orange.
3 rounds with 1 strand orange + 1 strand peach.
3 rounds with 1 strand peach + 1 strand strong yellow.
3 rounds with 1 strand peach + 1 strand orange.
1 round with 1 strand orange + 1 strand raspberry.

STRIPES CELLPHONE COZY:
Work stripes in dc-groups as follows:
3 rounds with 1 strand raspberry + 1 strand orange.
2 rounds with 1 strand orange + 1 strand peach.
2 rounds with 1 strand peach + 1 strand strong yellow.
2 rounds with 1 strand peach + 1 strand orange.
1 round with 1 strand orange + 1 strand raspberry.

BAG:
Piece is worked in the round bottom up. Work on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with 1 strand raspberry + 1 strand orange and beg with MAGIC CIRCLE - see explanation above.
ROUND 1: Work 16 dc in the magic circle.
ROUND 2: READ CROCHET INFO! Work 2 dc in every dc = 32 dc.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in next dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 48 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 64 dc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 6: * 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 80 dc.
ROUND 7: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 8: * 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 96 dc.
ROUND 9: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 10: * 1 dc in each of the next 5 dc, work 2 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 112 dc.
ROUND 11-13: Work 1 dc in every dc. Insert 1 marker after last round.
Then work STRIPES BAG – see explanation above, AT THE SAME TIME work dc-groups as follows:
ROUND 1: Work 3 ch (= 1 dc), work 1 dc in next dc but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 dc in next dc but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook (= 3 dc worked tog), * ch 2, work 1 dc in next dc but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 dc in next dc but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 dc in next dc but pull YO through all 4 sts on hook *, repeat from *-* the entire round, skip last dc on round and finish with ch 2 and 1 sl st at the top of first dc-group from beg of round = 37 dc-groups with 2 ch between each, turn and work next round from WS.
ROUND 2: 1 sl st in first ch-space, ch 3 (= 1 dc), work 1 dc in same ch-space but wait with last YO and pull through, work 1 dc more in same ch-space but pull last YO through all 3 sts on hook, * ch 2, 1 DC-GROUP – see explanation above, in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with ch 2 and 1 sl st at the top of first dc-group. Turn piece, work next round from RS.

ROUND 3-4: Work 1 dc in every dc = 100 dc.
ROUND 5: * ch 4, 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, skip 3 dc, 1 sc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round = 25 ch-spaces. Fasten off.

HANDLE:
Ch 6 on hook size 4 mm / G/6 with 1 strand raspberry + 1 strand orange and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
Work 1 sc in every ch = 6 sc. Then work in the round with 1 sc in every sc until handle measures approx. 100 cm / 40'', fasten off.
Pull the end of handle through a hole in a ch-space at the top of bag from WS, make a knot from RS.

ch 1, work 1 sl st in first ch-space, * ch 4, 1 dc in 4th ch from hook, 1 sc in next ch-space *, repeat from *-* the entire round, finish with 1 sl st in 1st ch from beg of round. Fasten off. Sew cozy tog at the bottom - sew in outermost sts.

FLOWER:
Worked in the round. Ch 5 on hook size 3 mm / C with lime and form a ring with 1 sl st in first ch.
