Step 1: Materials
" large-eyed sewing needle
In these pictures, I'm using a 5.00 mm hook and discount-store utility twine. I prefer it to yarn because, at $1.99 for several yards, you can just bang out projects and not worry about running out. For this project, I'm going to work in single crochet. It has less give, and creates a tighter weave - good qualities for an electronics case.
Step 2: Make the handle
Single-crochet into your chain. Repeat for about 30 rows. I don't bother counting though. What I do is stop when the handle gets as long as the hook I'm using.
Step 3: Join handle edges
Before you join the handle together: the long tail you made at the beginning of the project should be on the OUTSIDE of the letter U. Not in the middle. That'll be important later.
