Draw string crochet pouch

 
        
Draw string crochet pouch

I used worsted weight scrap yarn for this bag, changing color often, I listed where I changed colors in this pattern but colors can be changed at any end of round. I didn’t keep track of the amounts of yarn used, however it wasn’t much of each.

Exact gauge is not essential to this project, I used a size G ( 4,25 mm ) hook for the pouch and K ( 6.50 mm ) for the draw string.

Each instruction for individual rounds are listed by number until the bottom center where you will continue until bottom is closed.

I’m sure you can use any stretchy foundation stitch you like, I found this one to be easy to do with a nice look…

Foundation stitch

Chain 2, insert hook under top 2 loops of second chain from hook, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through one loop on hook, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook ( first foundation stitch made ), * insert hook under top 2 loops of chain at the base of previous foundation stitch, yarn over hook and pull up a loop, yarn over hook and pull through one loop on hook, yarn over hook and pull through 2 loops on hook repeat from * for a total of 38 times

After completing the foundation join together to form a ring with a slip stitch ( all rounds are joined with slip stitches )

1 - 2 ) chain 1, single crochet to end of round

3 ) using new color chain 2 ( counts as first double crochet ), double crochet into base of first chain just made, chain 1, skip next chain, * double crotchet twice in next chain, chain 1, skip next chain* repeat to end ( this round makes the openings for the draw string )

4 - 5 ) chain 1, single crochet to end of round

6 ) change color chain 2, double crochet to end of round

7 ) chain 1, single crochet 3, skip 1 chain, * single crochet 4, skip 1 chain * to end of round

8 - 9 ) chain 1, single crochet to end of round

10 ) change color chain 1, single crochet 2, skip 1 chain, * single crochet 3, skip 1 chain * to end of round

11 ) chain 1, single crochet to end of round

12 ) chain 1, single crochet 3, skip 1 chain, * single crochet 4, skip 1 chain * to end of round

13 ) chain 1, *single crochet 1, skip 1 chain * repeat without slip stitching between round until bottom of bag is closed, fasten off.

Weave in ends, closing slight gap in foundation and bottom with tail ends.

Using 3 strands of yarn and larger hook make a chain cord long enough to weave through openings for draw string.

If you find any issues with this pattern please feel free to leave a comment informing me :D oh other than it being fully written out instead of abbreviations lol I’ll start using them when I get the hang of crochet a bit better :D
