Hey hey hey everyone!! I am working on my scrap busting today and am sharing some crochet key pouches. I admit, I am one of those people that will head out to the store in my yoga pants (I don’t do yoga but I like the pants!) and they don’t have pockets. I do have keys though so I thought I would make something to hold my id, cards and cash. Then I thought hmmm what about a change purse? or a medicine pouch?
I used a partial skein of Sugar & Cream (oasis) cotton yarn and a H hook for all three.
