Crochet Reindeer Pouch



Sometimes you just need to go back to the basics. This Crochet Reindeer Pouch pattern was inspired by my very first written pattern The Crochet Clutch. So simple and yet there are so many possibilities for a piece like this! I did alter the sizing of the original pattern slightly and made a triangular flap. Perfect for holding a gift card, candy, lip gloss, jewelry, or anything other stocking stuffer type items you want to gift for the holidays. Or use it to hold all of your little must-haves that usually get lost in your purse: keys, coins, tissues, etc. I am sure you will find the perfect use for it this holiday season! PS - wouldn't this make a cute fox as well?

Materials:
- Worsted Weight Yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna's Choice in Honey, Brown, and White
- Size H Crochet Hook
- Red Button
- Two small black buttons
- Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
TC =Triple Crochet
SC Decrease = Single Crochet Decrease

Finished pouch measures approx. 6 x 4 inches.

Row 41: SC Decrease, SC in next 4, SC Decrease over last two, chain 1, turn
Row 42: SC Decrease, DC in next two, SC Decrease over last two (Make those DC's into TC's if you are using a large button nose).
Continue to slip stitch around entire edge. When you get back to the start of row 42, fasten off and weave in ends.

Now you have a long crocheted strip. Fold the bottom up so it sits right under the triangle flap. Then you will want to sew together the sides with a long piece of yarn and a tapestry needle.
