Donna's Migraine Relief Pack

If you suffer from migraines as I do, then you know that they can pretty much stop you in your tracks and your medicine needs to be close by. I have been taking a migraine pill for several years now that works very well. It comes in a little plastic container which can be reused for anything small and it also helps keep the pills from getting crushed before use. I decided to make a little purse to hold my migraine pills so that if I'm going somewhere that I don't need my purse I'll always have these close by.

If you don't have any of these containers or don't even have migraines, this pattern will work as a regular little purse of sorts.

Please feel free to use this pattern personally, but please do not sell the pattern and do not copy it.

Thanks and enjoy!

Size G Crochet Hook
1 Ball Ribbon Type Yarn (I used SWC Maize)
Tapestry Needle

Round 1: CH 11, HDC in 2nd CH from hook and in each CH across. Work 3 HDC in last CH. Now work on opposite side of CH working 1 HDC in each CH across. Work 2 HDC in same space as first HDC. Join, do not turn.

Round 2: CH 2 (counts as first HDC), HDC in same space, 2 HDC in next space. HDC in next 8 stitches. 2 HDC in each of the next 4 stitches. HDC across to the last 2 stitches. 2 HDC in the last 2 stitches. Join, do not turn.

Round 3: CH 2, HDC in each HDC across. Join, do not turn.

Rounds 4-8: Repeat Round 3

Round 9: CH 2, HDC in each stitch across to other side. (You are working only in 1/2 of the stitches of this row.) Leaving the rest of the stitches unworked, Turn.

Round 10: CH 2, HDC in FRONT LOOP of each stitch across. Turn.

Round 11: CH 2, HDC in each stitch across. Turn.

Round 12: Repeat Round #10

Rounds 13-14: Repeat Round #11

Round 15: CH 2, HDC in first 5 stitches. CH 3, slkip next 3 stitches. HDC in last 5 stitches. Turn.

Round 16: CH 2, HDC in each stitch across, working 3 HDC in CH 3 space. Turn.

Do no fasten off! Slip stitch into side stitches up to the side of the purse. Now work 1 SC in each of the next 4 spaces. CH 1, turn. SC in each stitch across. Do this until strap is desired length. Attach strap to opposite end by working a slip stitch into each stitch and space on bag.

Either make a button or use a store bought one, weave in ends and you're done!!!

I suffer from migraines too and always thought those Maxalt containers could be put to a good use. I'm going to have to try this pattern out for mine! Thanks!
