Hook size G/6-4.25mm
Crochet cotton (less than 1 oz.)
1 button (approx. ½ in.)
To begin, loop yarn around your hand twice to make a ring 2-2 ½ inches across. Using crochet hook, pull yarn through loop to make a slip stitch.
Ch 3 (counts as first dc). Dc around loop until you have about 50 dc. The number of stitches may vary depending on the size of your ring. Evenly space your dc to cover the yarn loop without letting the ring become “wavy” in appearance. Join with sl st to first dc. Turn.
Ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in next 9 stitches (10 dc total). Turn. Repeat for 10 rows.
Ch 1, sc across last row. Make 2 more sc in last dc. Continue sc, spacing evenly, along side of tab. For ring, sc 3, sk 1 around to second side of tab. Sc evenly along second side. Make 2 sc in last stitch. Join and fasten off.
Sew button on center stitch on the first row of the tab. To close, slide button between center stitches of last tab row.
