Touch of Lace

small pouch

A good way to use leftover yarns and threads.

I used Peaches & Cream Cotton Yarn- This pouch is 3 1/2″ X 2 3/4″

*Start with an oval.

Ch 12


At the beginning of each row first sc should be in same sc as joining sl st.
Pattern is worked in the round; do not turn at end of Rnd.

Rnd 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in back loop only till you reach the last ch (10 sc*), 3 sc in last ch

wrapping around (should resemble a hook), continue across in unused loops of foundation ch, sc

across to last ch st (10 sc), 3 sc in ch, join with sl st to first sc.

Rnd 2: Ch 1, sc in next 10 sc, 2 sc in next 3 sc, sc in ea of next 10 sc, 2 sc in next 3 sc st. join.

Crochet all the way around with out adding any additional stitches for 8 rounds.

Start decreasing-

On row 9 I did two decreases on each side of pouch then I continued sc (without decrease) for two

more rows.

Loosely sl st around top. End.

For the lacy flap I used Aunt Lydia’s size #3 cotton thread (I modified the chart below to fit).


After the flap is completed, do not end.   Crochet 5 rows of sc on flat side. End.

Attach flap to back of pouch purse.

Pouch back

*For a larger purse do more oval (bottom) rows and extra rows for the rest of the purse. For a wider purse make your foundation ch longer, then you can decide on how long you want your pouch.

You can find  “How to Crochet an Oval” at Bukisa.

Also, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that I had a wonderful Mother’s Day.

I got a lemon cake with raspberry filling-

and a cute bear/balloon with three rose.

Along with chocolate covered caramel topped with a touch of sea salt that my daughter sent.

Big hugs and kisses to my family.
