Original Pattern by Carey Fiorello

While I don't have a photo of the completed project, this is a close-up of what the stitch looks like...

Materials:

100% cotton worsted weight yarn
Crochet hook, size G (or size needed for gauge)

Gauge: 7 dec = about 4"
              4 rows = about 2 1/2 "

Finished size: about 7 1/2" high, 11" long, and 5 1/2" wide

HINT** : To adjust the height of the finished item, simply add / decrease the # of rows done on the side & end pieces. To adjust the width of the finished item, simply increase / decrease the # of ch sts used at the start of each piece to a different even # of sts, but remember the top will also need to be adjusted accordingly...

Decrease: YO, insert hook in SAME st, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, skip next ch, YO, insert hook in next st, YO and pull up a loop, YO and draw through 2 loops on hook, YO and draw through all 3 loops on hook.
