Drawstring net, small

If a round starts  with a dc, the first dc is replaced by ch3 or a Faux double crochet. Finish with 1 ss in 3rd ch, if you replaced the 1st dc with ch3

Work a magic ring (or ch4, ss in 1st ch)

  1. Ch2, 1 dc in the ring = 1 dc2tog *ch1, dc2tog in the ring*, repeat from*-* four more times, finish with a sc in 1st dc = 1 ch1-sp, (6 dc2tog)
  2. 2 dc in the last ch1-sp (sc), [(2 dc, ch1, 2 dc) in next ch-sp]X5, finish with 2 dc in the last ch1-sp (sc), 1 sc in 1st dc = 1 ch1-sp, (24 dc + 6 ch)
  3. 4 dc in the last ch1-sp 2, [7 dc in next ch-sp]x5, 3 dc in the last ch1-sp, finish with a ss in 1st dc, (6 petals)
  4. Ch1 = 1 sc, ch3, 1 dc in between the last dc in a ch-sp and the first dc in the next ch-sp on rnd 2, ch3, *1 sc i the 4th dc in next petal, ch3, 1 dc in between the last dc in a ch-sp and the first dc in the next ch-sp on rnd 2, ch3* repeat from *-* 4 more times, finish with 1 ss in 1st ch, (12 ch3-sp)
  5. Ch1 = 1 sc, ch4, 1 sc in ch3-sp, ch4, 1 sc in next ch3-sp, ch4, *1 sc in next sc, ch4, 1 sc in ch3-sp, ch4, 1 sc in next ch3-sp, ch4*, repeat from *-* around, finish with ch1, 1 dc in 1st sc(ch1) = 1 ch4-sp, (18 ch4-sp)
  6. Work 1 sc in the last ch4-sp, *ch5, 1 sc in next ch4-sp*, repeat from *-* around, finish with ch2, 1 dc in 1st sc = 1 ch5-sp, (18 ch5-sp)
  7. Work 1 sc in the last ch5-sp, *ch6, 1 sc in next ch5-sp*, repeat from *-* around, finish with ch2, 1 tr in 1st sc = 1 ch6-sp, (18 ch6-sp)
  8. Work 1 sc in the last ch6-sp, *ch7, 1 sc in next ch6-sp*, repeat from *-* around, finish with ch3, 1 tr in 1st sc = 1 ch7-sp, (18 ch7-sp)
  9. Work 1 sc in the last ch7-sp, *ch7, 1 sc in next ch7-sp*, repeat from *-* around, finish with ch3, 1 tr in 1st sc = 1 ch7-sp, (18 ch7-sp)Repeat rnd 9 until desired length of the net.
  10. Work 1 sc in the last ch7-sp, *ch4, 1 sc in next ch7-sp*, repeat from *-* around, finish with ch4, 1 ss in 1st sc, (18 ch4-sp)
  11. Ch1 = 1 sc, 4 sc in next ch4-sp, *1 sc in next sc, 4 sc in next ch4-sp*, repeat from *-* around, finish with 1 ss in 1st sc(ch1), (90 sc)
  12. Ch1 = 1 sc, 1 blsc in each of the next 2 sc, ch1, skip 1 sc, *1 blsc in each of the next 4 sc, ch1, skip 1 sc,* repeat from *-* around, finish with 1 blsc in next sc, 1 ss in 1st sc (ch1), (72 sc + 18 ch)
  13. Ch1 = 1 sc, 1 blsc in each sc and ch around, finish with 1 ss in 1st sc (ch1) (90 sc)

    Crochet a string, using chains. Make it approx 1,5 times the length around the top of the net. Pull it trough the small holes under the ch-sp on rnd 12 (They can be a bit difficult to find to start with) Pattern for string stoppers, at the and of this page

Leaf, String Stoppers

Attach yarn with 1 sc in the chain at the end of the string. *Ch 3, (2dc-cl, ch2, 1 ss in 2nd ch, 2dc-cl, ch2, 1 ss) in 3rd ch from hook, 1 ss in 1st sc*, repeat from *-* two more times. Cut yarn and weave in ends. Make another one, at the other end of the string.
