Crocheted Pineapple Nano Pouch


I use pouches for my nano at the gym because they are easy to wash, and they don't get in my way like an armband does when I'm working with resistance machines or free weights.

Size 10 crochet cotton
I used a size 8 hook, but worked a bit loose, a size 7 may be better. Check gauge after first 5 rounds. It should be 1 7/8 inches across the bottom and 3/4 inch long. I used a chain then slipstitched that for the foundation chain because I like the way it looks and holds up better that way. I turn the chain on it's side and work the front and back through two loops like you do with just flat crochet. The reinforcement seems to help all my bags not stretch and get that lacy look at the bottom.
5/8 inch button- I actually stacked one button on top of another button because I liked the way it looked.
Tapestry needle that the cotton will fit through.

Chain (ch) 16, slip stitch (sl st) into second chain from hook and sl st down length. Foundation chain made.
