Keychain Pouch With Drawstring FREE PATTERN

I was just browsing through my old bookmarks online and came across the link to one of my old blogs which contains some of my first original patterns. I believe this is the first pattern I ever posted online, back in May 2012. You can find the original post at the following link ( ), but I’ve also copied and pasted it below to make it easier.

A very easy project, ideal for beginners.

Materials Needed:
Size 10 Crochet Thread (one skein will make MANY pouches)
2.75 mm hook/U.S. size 0
tapestry needle


Make a magic ring (or ch3, slip st in 1st ch to form a ring), 10 sc in ring. Pull ring closed, join with sl st to 1st sc in ring.

Next: 2 sc in each sc around, join with sl st (20 sc)

Next: sc in 1st sc, 2sc in next sc, (sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc) repeat in ( ) around, join with sl st (30 sc)

Next: sc in each sc around, join with sl st (30 sc)

Next: You will now be working in a continuous pattern. Do NOT join at the end of each round; sc in each sc around until pouch is as long as you wish it to be.

At the end of the last round, join with sl st.

Next rnd: (ch 3, sk next st, sl st in next st) repeat around

Next 4 rnds: (ch 3, sl st in next ch-3 sp) repeat around

After 4th round, fasten off.

Next: Make drawstring: ch 100, fasten off.

With tapestry needle, weave ch through the 1st rnd of ch-3 sps. Pull tight on both ends, centre the drawstring, and secure pouch closed with a bow.

Weave in all ends. Attach pouch to a keyring through one of the ch-3 sps.

Done 🙂

    Since I’ve fallen behind this week, I thought I’d fill the gap in blog posts by resharing this old pattern, which I made about 6 years ago. I know in the original post I wrote that it would be good for beginners, however, I think I’ll clarify that it’s good for those who are beginning with crochet thread. Of course, you can use a larger yarn and hook size and make the pouch bigger in doing so. But then it might be too big to put on a keychain…but maybe you’re somebody who likes big keychains!
    Anyway, enjoy and have a great Saturday!
