Crochet Pouches - free pattern


For the Roman Festival I participated in last Sunday and about which I am going to give you a full report - I also made these pouches inspired from the times when people kept their precious objects into pouches (of any kind).
The pattern is so easy you can make a whole bunch in an evening.
For the grey and beige ones I used sport cotton yarn and 1,9 mm steel hook, while the burgundy is made of acrylic yarn and a 3.00 mm hook. The cotton ones look more dainty and elegant while the other is more "rustic" if I may say so. If you are going to use these as gifts, choose your yarn wisely.
Crochet Pouch Pattern
Used stitches: ch (chain), sl st (slip stitch), hdc (half double crochet), tr (treble).
Foundation and round 1:
1. Chain 4 and join to make a ring.
2-4. In the ring, ch 4 (counts as the 1st tr) and make 14 tr (15). Join with a sl st to end round. 

Round 2:
5-7. Tr2 in each stitch (30). End with a sl st.
Round 3:
8. Work in back of stitch only -ch4, then tr1 in every stitch around. Sl st to join.

Round 4- end: Ch4, then tr1 in every stitch around. Sl st to join. I just made 3 rounds because I wanted small pouches - not long-ish.
Final round - edging: (picture 11) ch 2 an hdc in every stitch around. Sl st to join. Cut yarn, tie knot, weave ends.

Finishing up: chain a tie, and using a tapestry needle  insert it through the pouch. And you are done!
These lovely pouches can be a fab last minute gifts and also an adorable stocking fillers for girls while ladies can keep their "gems and jewels" inside.

I hope you like them and give them a try.

Thank you for the sweet pattern! I love little crochet pouches, and this one is so nice, being an original shape, plus fast to make, and versatile. It will also be fun to do it with minor variations!
