Additional information-


· You may use DK (8 ply/light worsted weight) yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. However, this will make the bag slightly smaller and measures approximately 5 inches in length and 6 inches in width.


· When you have completed, you may need to manipluate the eyelash yarn a bit to make it more ‘fuzzier’, I do this by pulling at the eyelashes with a needle. This should help loosen them up to make it look more full.


· For the Elf bag you will not need to BLO for rows 2, 3 and 24 as you will not be adding any eyelash yarn to it. However, if you want to add red eyelash yarn, you will need to BLO for those rows.


· Feel free to change the number of chains and rows used to make the bag bigger or smaller.


· When crocheting into the chain, only crochet into one loop, this will make it easier to crochet along the other side of the chain.


· Want to add a little something extra to your bag? Try adding a white pom-pom to the Santa bag. For the Elf bag, try adding a large (25mm/0.9in) bell.
