Here is a pattern I wrote about 1.5 years ago, and finally decided to actually post it. I had it tested in the testing rooms
I hope ya'll enjoy this pattern. It can be used in various ways. For cell phones, change, a little purse for a little girl.

Small amount worsted weight yarn ( I used Red Heart Ocean, and Mexicana in my examples)
Size H crochet hook
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
Some type of marker for marking beginning of rounds.
Gauge- first 3 rounds of bag = 1 ½ inches across
Note- Most rounds are worked continuously, so use some type of marker to mark the beginning of the rounds.
Only join rounds when pattern states to.
Rnd 1 : Sc in second ch from hook 8 times. (8 sc). Place marker in first sc of this round ,and from now on move marker up to first sc of every round.

Rnd 11: Ch 3, working in front of ch 3, dc in stitch to the right of ch 3, * skip next sc, and dc in next sc, Working in front of the last dc, dc in skipped stitch to the right. Cross stitch made. Repeat from * around. Sl st in top of beginning ch 3 . (12 cross stitches made)
Rnd 12-15: Ch 1, sc in same stitch as sl st, and in every stitch around. Work continuously for 4 rounds, making sure to mark first stitch of each new round.. At end of round 15, sl st in top of first sc.

Finish off ( cut yarn, and weave in all ends)
To make tie:
Ch 54, or until chain measures 12 ½ inches with out stretching.
Weave chain through every space of Round 16, and tie, making sure that the ends of the chain are matched up evenly.
