Crochet Pouch







This sweet little crochet pouch is quick to make but needs some advanced crochet skills as you will need to understand how to work in rounds.

Make it in one colour or use up tiny oddments of yarn as I have done with the one in the photo, joining in new colour randomly as and where the last one ran out

You will need double knitting yarn which is a UK weight of yarn.  if you are not sure what this is in your part of the world then choose a yarn which suggests the use of 4mm knitting needles.

You will also need a 5mm hook or nearest equivalent.

However you can make this little bag slightly bigger or smaller by using different thicknesses of hook or yarn.

Instructions for Crochet Pouch

Make a slip knot and check that it tightens from the cut end.

Loosen the loop. Insert hook into loop, wrap yarn on hook and pull through. Make 3 chain - counts as one double crochet (UK treble)

Make 11 more double crochet into the loop. Tighten the slip knot.

Slip stitch into the top of the 3 chain. 3 chain, turn.

On next 2 rounds, work a straight double crochet stitch into every stitch.

Fasten off and darn in loose ends

Take a piece of yarn about twice the length of your arm and make a twisted cord.

Thread the cord through every other space between the stitches on the second row down from the top. Pull tight and tie in a bow, and that's your crochet pouch done!
