Fortune Cookies

So... I decided to make some little fortune cookies to surprise Hubby with for Valentine's Day. However, I didn't really like the patterns I found, && I figured it's a simple enough project that I could just improvise myself.

So I did.

&& I figured this neat little pattern is way too nifty for me to keep all to myself. So here it is :)

Gauge really isn't a factor...
So for any type of yarn you decide on, I suggest using the recommended hook size listed.
I used worsted weight yarn && a G hook.

Worked in continuous rounds.

Rnd 1: Ch 2; 6 sc in second ch from hook. (6 sc)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around. (12 sc)
Rnd 3: *1 sc in next st, 2 sc in next st* around. (18 sc)
Rnd 4: *1 sc in next 2 sts, 2 sc in next st* around. (24 sc)
Rnd 5: *1 sc in next 3 sts, 2 sc in next st* around. (30 sc)
Fasten off, leave tail for sewing (about 3 inches).

Fold completed circle in half. Sew 2/3 together, leaving an inch long opening. Fasten off.
Fold in half; holding flat ends together, stitch through corner end (rnd 1).

&& voila! You're done.
Create little messages to pass along with your newly crocheted fortune cookies.
They're an excellent addition to gift baskets :)
