little pouch pattern

7 Comments

yesterday it was really necessary to clean the floors in my home. the weather is nice and the door is open whole the time and then you walk in out and in out and that gives dirty floors. i first vacuumed and then i made this pouch, written the pattern and taken photos. a matter of shuffling priorities. later in the evening i cleared dust under bed and couch and mopped the floors, so it eventually i did what i had to do.

some info

i used small pieces of leftover yarn so i had to do a lot of weaving in yarn ends, but it is a small and fast project. use any yarn you like with a matching crochet hook size and it is up to you to make the pouch in one color or as many colors you want. my yarn was punto fancy color of schachenmayr nomotta with crochet hook size 4.0 mm

used stitches (american terms)

ss = slip stitch

ch = chain stitch 

sc = single crochet

h dc = half double crochet

dc = double crochet

tr = treble crochet

 

 

here is how you can make the pouch

 

  • start with a magic loop 
  • row 1. 3 chains, 15 dc into the ring, close with a slip stitch into the top of the starting chain
  • row 2. 6 chains (is first tr and 2 ch), *1 tr in the next dc, 2 ch*, repeat between * and * until end of row, close with a slip stitch into the 4th ch of starting chains
  • row 3. 1 ch, 3 sc into the first 2-ch space and 3 sc into the all the other 2-ch spaces, close with a slip stitch into the first sc

  • row 6. 1 ch, 1 dc into the same stitch as slip stitch into the back loop only, 1 dc into all the subsequence stitches into the back loops only, close with a slip stitch into the first dc into both loops

  • weave in all ends
  • crochet a cord of chains that is long enough to braid through the spaces of row 16 and to close the pouch.

  4. Gossie, wat ben je ijverig geweest in de hitte. Ik had net mijn ouders aan de telefoon en daar was het 37 graden!!
    En het idee van Blandine is geweldig. Mark neemt van zjn reizen altijd de hotelzeepjes voor me mee als souvenir. Ik ben blij met weinig,:) Dus ipv lavendel gebruik ik de zeepjes voor het geurbuideltje.
    Volgende week vlieg ik naar Nederland Ik ga je patroon printen en heb dan het perfecte projekt om de tjd te doden tijdens het vliegen en in de trein.
    Een heel fijn weekend en tot over 3 weken.
