Carrot Pouch Tutorial



Crochet Carrot Pouch

Here's a great little gift idea for the little ones this Easter! I designed this one to hold one Easter Egg Bunny and there's still room for some treats too. But of course you can make this cute little pouch anytime of the year and stuff it with some fun foods for your child's lunch or to take to daycare with a  healthy snack inside. My children always loved their snacks inside something fun and colorful.

This is a relatively easy pattern good for the beginner and it comes with a full
video tutorial as well. Keep scrolling down this page for the pattern and video link.

How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.
Read me ~>  Work in continuous rounds, do not join. It's a good idea to add in a marker at the end of row 2 and move that marker at the end of every row. I just use a short length of yarn and pull it through the last stitch I put in at the end of every row.

Supplies:
Red Heart Comfort Yarn in Emerald 3233, and Tango 3232
4.5mm hook
blunt end yarn needle
scissors

This pattern uses these basic stitches:
st = stitch
sc = single
dc = double crochet
sl st = slip stitch
f/o = finish off

22-24) 1sc in each st for 3 rows switching to green on last st of row 24 and ch2
25) 1dc in each st around *work the yarn tails into the first few dc's to hide them
26) (join last st of row 25 and first st or row 26 with 1sc) now ch3 then 1sc in next st, repeating ch3 and 1sc all the way around
sl st next st and f/o weave in yarn tails
 

*working the green edge as pictured below
1) your last dc goes here
2) your first sc goes here (no chain)
3) chain 3 then put in a sc in next st ~ repeat around


Tie To Close Up The Pouch:
With green ch 80 and f/o. I switched to a 3.75mm hook to make the chain. This isn't necessary but it will make a tighter looking chain. Weave chain in and out between the posts of row 25 all the way around.

  4. I loved this pattern from the minute I saw it and can not wait to make them for my grandchildren. BUT I had a major problem finding orange yarn. I finally found it in AC MOORE after going to 4 other craft stores.Michaels told me it is an unusual color and not part of their normal inventory. What???????? I got the yarn this morning and plan on crocheting at least one today. I am so excited!
