Small Hands Free Soft Neck Pouch crochet

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Crochet in the round
  • single crochet

Pattern Description:

I decided to give this pattern away free as a thanks to all the vets who fight and have fought for our freedom- Thank you!!

The neck pouch is very handy when you have no pockets but need to stash some cash, house key, or other small item. It could probably be adjusted to fit very small cell phones. The top is open for easy access but will not fall out when you bend over due to the shaping. The pouch is soft around the neck, very light and can fit inside your shirt. You can make one to match any outfit pretty quickly. It also makes a nice gift bag and party favor

Skill Level: Beginner
Supplies Needed:
Your choice of color soft worsted weight, 1 oz (I used Caron Simply Soft)
Size H/8 5mm hook
Stitch marker

Of course you could also use a different weight yarn and smaller or larger hook for a smaller or larger size pouch. This mini pocket pouch is made from soft acrylic yarn and is meant to be worn over the neck. It falls about mid-chest. You or your child's tiny treasures will be secure due to the 2 inch opening and tight stitch. And your hands stay free! The design has a gentle ridge you can even hang small items to. The widest part of the bag is 3 inches. You can always add more stitches to make the opening larger. To make it so you can strap it across the body, add more to the chain at the end. Keep adding chains until the length is where you want it.

This little pouch is perfect for kids and adults. The uses are almost endless.
