Scissors
3 small beads

Stitches Used:
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
sc = single crochet
dc = double crochet
hdc = half double crochet
FPdc = front post double crochet
rsc = reverse single crochet (crab stitch)

Additional Terms:
Working in the 3rd loop of hdc. Instructions: Look at the top of the stitch, and locate the sideways “V”, bend the stitch to look at the back, and you should see another “V”. You’ll be working into the back loop of that “V”, this is called the 3rd loop.

Gauge:
26 sc sts in 4” of width, by 14 rows of height in 2”

Measurements:
7 1/2” tall by 5 1/4” wide excluding strap

Additional Notes:
-Ch-1 at beginning or round/row does not count as a stitch
-Use tighter tension when crocheting the straps and ID/credit card pouch. This will make them less prone to excessive stretching.
