ROUND 1: 5 dc in first ch – See CROCHET TIP, * skip 4 ch, 5 dc in next ch (= 1 dc-group) *, repeat from *-* and finish with skipping 4 ch and crochet 1 sl st at the top of first dc on round = 28 dc-groups.

ROUND 2: Crochet sl sts to the middle of the first dc-group, 5 dc in the middle dc on first dc-group, * 5 dc in the middle dc on next dc-group *, repeat from *-* and finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
Repeat round 2 until piece measures 21 cm / 8 1/4''.
Now crochet next round as follows:

Crochet 6 rounds with 1 sc in each sc, cut the thread.

Hold the bag with the bottom facing away from you. Crochet between the dc-groups in the transition between the one but last and the last round with dc-groups as follows with light ice blue:
ROUND 1: Crochet 5 dc between each dc-group round the bag.
ROUND 2: Crochet sl sts to the middle of the first dc-group, then 6 dc in the middle dc in each dc-group round the bag.
ROUND 3: Crochet sl sts to the middle of the first dc-group, then 7 dc between the 2 middle dc in each dc-group round the bag, cut the thread.
