Peacocky Pouch Crochet Pattern: Lovely Gift or Project Pouch with Peacock Feathers

Free crochet pattern by thecuriocraftsroom gift pouch project pouch home decor peacock feather

Here's the pattern for the Peacocky Pouch for you. It's a cute gift or project pouch that can be adjusted to any size you'd like. It's made in Scheepjes Bamboo Soft, a bamboo and cotton blend yarn that creates a beautiful drape that's just perfect for a little (or not so little) pouch.
You'll find the English pattern below and the Dutch pattern here but you can also purchase a beautifully laid out PDF pattern in one of my shops.

In my Ravelry and Etsy shops you can purchase a PDF version of this pattern

The advantages of the PDF version are:

  • Clear layout with instructions in bullet-point format
  • Stitch Chart for the French Mini Peacock Feather
  • Instructions how to adjust size
  • Close up photos
  • Similar graphic design as all of my other PDF patterns
  • You support my work so that I can continue to publish free patterns and offer discount codes
Thank you!

POUCH PATTERN

Skill Level Beginners

Materials
Yarn:
Bamboo Soft (50% Bamboo, 50% Cotton; 50g/150m)
Yarn amounts needed:
Small Pouch: approx. 33g
Medium Pouch: approx. 55g
Large Pouch: approx. 163g
Colours: See below for information on the exact colours I used and where to shop for Bamboo Soft yarn
Crochet hooks: 3mm or 3.5mm for pouch depending on tension and 2.5mm or 3mm for peacock feather also depending on tension (see Gauge/Tension section below)
1 x stitch marker
Tapestry needle
Ribbon for Small Pouch: 0.5cm x approx. 90cm
Ribbon for Medium Pouch: 0.5cm x approx. 90cm
Ribbon for Large Pouch: 0.5cm x approx. 110cm 


Measurements (lying flat)
Small Project Pouch: 13 x 17cm (5.1 x 6.7in) with 3mm hook
Medium Project Pouch: 18 x 21cm (7.1 x 8.3in) with 3mm hook
Large Project Pouch: approx. 27 x 43cm (10.6 x 16.9in) with 3mm hook
Peacock Feather: 4.5 x 5cm (1.8 x 2in) with 3mm hook


Gauge/Tension
For the linen stitch part of the pouch it is important that the fabric is not too stiff so that it has a nice drape. You may either need a 3mm or 3.5mm hook depending on your tension. The bottom of the small pouch (which is worked in sc sts) should measure approx. ∅ 9.5cm, any smaller and the linen stitch rounds will probably be too tight. So it’s advised to make a swatch to see which hook size will work best for you.
For the peacock feathers tension is less critical, but if you tend to crochet loosely then a 2.5mm hook is recommended.

Pattern Notes
Pouch

Up to the decrease round, the pouch is worked in a spiral, which means that you won’t close rounds. Rather, you will continue around making the first stitch of each round in the first stitch of the previous round. It’s a good idea to use a stitch marker to keep track of your rounds: insert the marker in the first stitch of the round so that you know when you’ve finished it and then move it up to the first stitch of the next round.
From the decrease round onwards, rounds are closed with a slst.
A ribbon is woven through dc round 1 for the small and medium sized pouches and through dc round 2 for the large pouch.
French Mini Peacock Feather
There’s a separate PDF pattern for the French Mini Peacock Feather. You’ve received it together with the purchase of this PDF pattern.
The Bamboo Soft colours I used for the little feathers are listed above on page 1.
Sewing the feathers onto the pouch
I’ve sewn the feathers onto the pouch with a few small stitches in the centre and along the outer edge using machine thread in the colour of the pouch.
