Crocheted Pendant Pouch

This pouch is super easy and fairly fast to make. It uses single crochet, chain and double crochet stitches.

The small pouch can be used to hold rocks and crystals, or with a smaller chain- used as a gift bag for a ring or piece of jewelry.

You will need:

  • size 10 thread
  • size 7 or 1.5 mm crochet hook (size 8 if you use Boye hooks)
  • tapestry needle big enough to fit the thread
  • scissors
sc= single crochet
sl st= slip stich
dc=double crochet
ch= chain
st or sts= stitch or stitches
repeat ** = repeat the instructions between the asterisks 

American terminology used throughout.

Rnd 1: 6 sc in first ch or ring- sl st to join (6 stitches)

Rnd 15: Ch 2, dc in next 2 sts, ch 3, skip 3 stitches, *dc in next 3 sts, ch 3*, repeat ** around, sl st to join in 2nd ch of ch 2 (6 spaces made)

Break off, weave in ends

Chain a length long enough to slip over your neck, or 6 inches long if you are using it for a gift bag instead, sl st back down the length of the chain. Break off leaving ends long enough to weave in. Weave strap through the chain 3 spaces on Round 15, then tie off ends and weave them in.

    1. Thank you. That's one of my favorite thread colorways because it is so bright. There are some great videos on youtube to learn to crochet. It's a lot of fun.
