Reagent Pouches


Happy Saint Patrick's Day!  The pattern I am sharing today is for these small reagent pouches.  You can use this pouch to store your magical and special items :)

The materials you will need are size 3 cotton crochet thread and a 3.25 mm (D) hook, a yarn needle, and scissors.  I also used a few jump rings and some chain to attach the charms.  The brand of thread pictured is Aunt Lydias size 3 crochet thread in the colors- bridal white, sage, and copper mist.  

These pouches have 6 sets of cables made up of front post double crochet stitches, and front post treble crochet stitches.  The rest is done in single crochet.  There are instructions for 2 different sizes.  The taller white one measures 4" with a 3" opening at the top.  The green one measures 3" with a 3" opening. 


Instructions are available in 2 different sizes- a 3" or 4" tall pouch.

Drawstrings, make 2-

ch 100, fasten off.


Attaching the drawstrings

Thread the end of the drawstring onto the yarn needle. Weave the drawstring in the spaces between the dc stitches on Round 28 of the 4" pouch, Round 24 for the 3" pouch.  Stop when you reach the space next to where you started.
Repeat this with the second drawstring, starting on the opposite side of the first drawstring, there should be 8 dc between the two drawstrings. 

Straighten out the ends of both drawstrings so the chain stitches are even. Tie the ends together and trim away the extra thread, leaving about 1/2- 3/4".


Adding charms to the pouch

Attach the 5 mm jump rings to any dc on Round 28 if you made the 4" pouch, Round 24 if you made the 3" pouch. Take some small pieces of the chain and attach a 4 mm jump ring to one end along with a charm and close the ring. Attach another 4 mm jump ring to the other end of the chain and secure it to the ring on the pouch. For the charms in between take a piece of chain and attach a 4 mm jump ring to an end. Secure it to one of the rings on the pouch. Repeat this for the other end. Attach a jump ring to a charm and close it around the center chain.

For my pouches I attached 3 of the 5 mm rings onto the 3 dc stitches next to the drawstring. I used 5 small pieces of chain, 1 attached to each ring and 2 in between.
