Drawstring Treasure Pouch Pattern
Here are instructions to crochet a little drawstring pouch for all your tiny treasures.
Materials I used:
B (2.25mm) hook
size 3 crochet cotton (I used Size 3 Aunt Lydia's Fashion Crochet for the ones here), about 34 yards
This pattern assumes you know how to chain (ch); slip st (sl st); single crochet (sc); work in a spiral without joining; use stitch markers to mark beginning of round (rnd).
I have also made these using various colors of embroidery floss (undivided) and a size 6 (1.8mm) steel crochet hook.
Gauge = 14 rows and 12 sts to 2", but is not critical for this project.
Rnd 1 -- 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook (6). (For solid color, work in spiral; otherwise, join as usual)
Rnd 2 -- 2 sc in each sc (12)
Rnd 3 -- (2 sc in sc, sc in next sc), around (18)
Rnd 4 -- (2 sc in sc, sc in next 2 sts) around (24)
Rnd 5 -- (2 sc in next st, sc in next 3 sts) around (30)
Rnd 6 -- (2 sc in next, sc in next 4 sts) around (36)
Rnd 7 -- (2 sc in next sc, sc in next 5 sts) around (42)
Rnds 8 - 18 -- work even, sc in ea. st.
Rnd 19 -- (sc in next 2 sts, ch 1, skip next st) around
Rnds 20 - 22 -- work sc in each st or ch-1 sp (except if spiral, last st on round 20 and last 2 sts on round 22 = sl st instead of sc)
Optional Rnd 23 -- sl st around. FO.
For the cord to thread through spaces on Rnd 19: cut two 12" lengths of black thread or yarn, weave through spaces with yarn needle, and trim back once laced and tied off.
This is how it looks in stripes using various colors of embroidery floss, and joining rows instead of working in a spiral to make smooth stripes.
