Sugarberry pouch

Probably the easiest crochet pouch I’ve ever made without a pattern to start with. And my all-time favourite too because it reminds me of my sister who loves to dip strawberries in sugar. I just improvised along the way and made this pouch to carry my sweets.

Materials:

Rowan’s pure wool dk in red and green
4mm crochet needle
Tapesty needle

Pattern by rows:

Row 1: Start with a magic ring. Ch3 up from the ring, which counts as 1st dc. Dc 11. Close the ring. [12 st]

Row 2: Ss to 3rd ch from prev round. Ch 3, which counts as 1st dc. Dc 1 in the same stitch. Dc 2 in each of the remaining 11 st. [24 st]

Row 3: Ss to 3rd ch from prev round. Ch 3, which counts as 1st dc. Dc 2 in next st. *Dc 1 in next st, dc 2 in next st.* Repeat ** until end of round. [36 st]

Row 4: Ss to 3rd ch from prev round. Ch 3, which counts as 1st dc. Dc 1 in next st. Dc 2 in next st. *Dc 1 in each of the next 2 st, dc 2 in next st.* Repeat ** until end of round. [48 st]

Row 5: Ss to 3rd ch from prev round. Ch 3, which counts as 1st dc. Dc 1 in each of the next 2 st. Dc 2 in next st. *Dc 1 in each of the next 3 st, dc 2 in next st.* Repeat ** until end of round. [60 st]

Row 6: Ss to 1st tr from prev round. Ch 3, which counts as 1st dc, then dc 1 in each st until end of round. [60 st]

Rows 7-12: Repeat steps from row 6. Cut yarn, fasten off and weave in the ends.

Row 13: Change to green yarn. Ch 3, which counts as 1st dc, then dc 1 in each st until end of round. [60 st]

Row 14: *Ss to 1st dc from the prev round. Sk 2 st, dc 6 in next st, sk 2 st.* Repeat ** until end of round. Cut yarn, fasten off and weave in the ends. [10 scallops]

To make the drawstring, use green yarn and ch until desired length. Make 2 drawstrings and use the tapestry needle to weave the drawstring through the ‘eyelets’ of the scallops. Fasten at the ends.

You are almost done… To complete the ‘look’ of the strawberry , at random, evenly spaced st, sew a french knot. Make sure you sew through the strands of the yarn instead of in between the strands, or else the french knot won’t stay in place. Fasten the ends of the french knot on the inside of the work with 2-3 simple knots and trim off, leaving about 1 cm ends.

Throw in sweets and candy and pop the sugarberry pouch into your bag wherever you go for a quick pickup!
