Puffy Spike Stitch Case

Use this puffy spike stitch case to store your crochet tools or use it as a pencil case. I use it to store my calculator, small notepad, pencil, stitch markers, scissors and other tools that I frequently need when crocheting. I’ve been spending a lot of time away from home this summer, so it has already served me well. (Yes, it is another pattern that has been laying around for a while. I actually have quite a few patterns that I started a while ago, including a bag to match this case.)

This pouch is crocheted using the single crochet and the puffy spike stitch. Both stitches take a while to crochet with, but in the end you get a nice sturdy pouch that you can leave as is or line it. I left mine as is, but now wish I had lined it because my pointy tools like to peek out from time to time. Definitely don’t store your small hooks unless you line it.

Here is a photo tutorial on how to make the puffy spike stitch. In this pattern I made it with 5 spikes, but you can also make it with three or seven spikes. The stitch is beautiful on both sides of the fabric.
