This crochet pouch is another pattern done with the cross-over double crochet stitch. You can use it to hold smaller items together in a big bag, as a small makeup bag, or for whatever else you might need it.

This page is for the pattern only, and I have not provided a tutorial on how to line it or how to insert a zipper. Depending on what you need it for, you might not have to line it, but I would definitely recommend putting in a zipper. If you’d like to see how it is done, let me know and I’d be happy to put together some images for both the lining and the zipper.

If you like this stitch, you might also enjoy the matching patterns: a brim hattwisted cowl, a pair of fingerless gloves and a cellphone cozie and a coin purse. Another pattern to come with this stitch is a purse. So if you like this one, stay tuned by subscribing to my newsletter and you’ll be notified the same week it is published. Hope you enjoy.

  • Take your zipper and pin it to the inside of the pouch making sure that both ends are aligned. With a needle and thread secure the zipper on both sides. If you like, you can also line the pouch with a small piece of fabric.
  • Another thing that you can do is to add a wrist band to it and wear it as a wristlet. If you want to do this, I would recommend you do it before you add the zipper. Or, you can also attach the band to the outside of the pouch, which will work just as well.
