This pattern uses a grid to tell you where the stitches go. Each square is one single crochet stitch. So from the numbers on the grid you can tell that there are 28 scs across and 34 rows.
Row 1: With Black Yarn ch 29, sl st into the second ch from the hook, sc in each ch across to the end. (28 sts)
Row 4: Count the number of blocks in this row that are black, that's how many scs you will make before changing color. For Row 4 you make 9 full scs, but on the 10th sc, don't finish it. Instead, start the st by inserting the hook and pulling up a loop, then add the Off White yarn and pull it through the two loops on the hook.
Remember not to finish the 9th st, because you will be changing back to the white yarn.
Continue following the chart for Rows 5 to 34. The back of the skull should look something like this.
And the front should look like this
Row 36: Ch 1, turn, sc in each sc across (in both loops). (28 scs)
Row 37: Repeat row 35. (28 scs)
|The two BLO rows make it so the flap folds over.|
Rows 38 to 43: Repeat row 36, Fasten off leaving a long tail.
Row 1: Ch 29, sc in second ch from hook, and in each ch across. (28 scs)
Row 2 to 34: Ch 1, sc in first sc and in each sc across, on the last row Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing on the sides, probably about 26 inches.
Ch 100, sc in second ch from hook and in each ch to end, 99 scs. Fasten off also leaving a long tail for sewing, about 26 inches.
Sew the side piece to the back of the case on three sides. Then sew the sides to the front of the case. You can add snaps to the flap to close the case, or leave it loose.
I'd love to see your finished work!
