For the row following this altered row, hdc in the chain one spaces when you get to them. I did this in the ninth and third to the last rows, measuring from the bag center like the instructions called for to find where to make the spaces in the ninth to the last row, and making sure I made the spaces in the third to the last row directly above the ones in the ninth to the last row. To install he grommet, fold down the top, matching up the spaces (holes) made with the chain-skip, insert the grommet post through the spaces (both layers), stretching the holes to fit, and complete grommet installation as instructed. This made the fold-down less than the pattern called for, but looked fine after the bag was completed. My biggest problem with this pattern was Joann did not sell the supplies need to complete the project. It took forever to find 3&quot; split rings on the internet, and I never did find 3/4&quot; grommets. I ended up using 7/16&quot; metal grommets, since the only other option were 1&quot; plastic curtain grommets, which I thought would be too large and I didn't think the plastic would hold up as well as metal. I think the 7/16&quot; grommets worked fine. None of the Joann stores I shopped at had the yarn in the colors listed so I had to substitute, and it wasn't until my project was almost done that the website and stores started carrying the 'nautical' colored Bernat yarn the pattern called for. I also put a fabric lining in the bag. I machine stitched the lining to the 10th to the last row (just below the row with the first grommet spaces, and before I installed the grommets. The next bag I make with this pattern I am going to add a zippered pocket to the lining and a heavy-duty snap closure. Since I was making this one up as I went along, I didn't think of these things until I was done. I love the look of the bag and it is very roomy. Just wish it hadn't been such a pain to find the right supplies.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2014-07-11</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2014-07-11" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="33343230"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Nautical Hobo Bag" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">3</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">jesica74</span> from <span itemprop="name">slight change</span> <span itemprop="description">I tried to place the grommets without cutting a hole and that didn't work. They ended up cutting their own hole and then the yarn started to unravel. I pulled out all of my rows where I had tried to place the grommets and then tried to crochet holes in. I made holes at rounds 18 and 9 from the top. I made the holes by chaining 3, skipping the next three stitches and then repeating where I needed the next hole. When I came to that spot on my next round I did three half double crochets in the chain three space. I bought 7/16 grommets because that was the largest size I could find at JoAnns. I am going to work on the handles. So far the bag looks great. I didn't use the same color as the pattern either.</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2014-07-09</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2014-07-09" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="33293417"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="Nautical Hobo Bag" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">3</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">ccg1510</span> from <span itemprop="name">Question!?!</span> <span itemprop="description">I'm making this bag and not sure how to do the grommets. If I follow the curtain grommet directions, it tells me to cut out a circle for the grommet. Net sure if I should do that. How else can the grommets be added?
