- Archer & Olive journal: I’m using A5. If your journal is a different size, alter the measurements
- Crochet hook: I’m using a 10mm hook
- Wool/yarn: I’m using a crunchy fluffy wool
Okay… go grab your supplies and let’s start making a crochet pencil pouch!
Step 1: Chain
Start with a slip not and chain 18 loops (18 for a tight fit, add more if you want a looser fit). Loop the wool around the hook and pull it through. (See video for reference)
Step 2: double crochet
Now you will double crochet down the row. Insert the hook into the hole, wrap the wool around your hook and pull it through two loops. You will be left with two loops on your hook. Loop the wool around again and pull through the two remaining hooks. Repeat this process down the row. When you finish a row, chain 1. This will help create height for your next row.
Step 3: Repeat
Repeat step 2 as many times as you need. Keep going until you have a rectangle that wraps all the way round your journal. If you want a looser fit, add more rows until you get to the desired length.
Step 4: Attach the sides
Now you need to connect the sides together. Fold the rectangle in half and crochet along the side. Tie it off and repeat on the other side.
And that’s it! You now have your very own journal pouch. You can go further with this by adding latches or a zip. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and can see how easy it is to create!
