Crochet Hook Pouch
"This pouch is worked in ALL single crochets (oh and a few slip stitches), so it is really, really easy. You do NOT need to know how to work in the round for this pouch, it is worked in rows as a flat piece. Then you’ll fold your rectangle and single crochet up the sides to “seam” your pouch together. This crochet pouch can easily be made shorter to turn it into a small bag for little items you don’t want getting lost in the depth of your big purse. As is, this cute little button bag is the perfect size for crochet hooks, double pointed knitting needles, pencils, markers, reading glasses, small paintbrushes…basically anything long and skinny. Use any worsted weight yarn you like. Cotton is sturdy and washes well. A self striping yarn will give you a variety of pretty colors without having to change yarn. I’ve included some images to help you understand how to fold the rectangle and seam it together. A picture is worth 1000 words, they say! Sewing on the button, you’re on your own for that. Sewing is not my forte, but I manage. Use sewing or upholstery thread and a “regular” size sewing needle and get it on there any way you can (just make sure it matches up to the button hole). Happy hooking!"
