Wrist Pouch

Copyright Designs byZula 2013

US and UK stitch versions included

This easy to crochet Wrist Pouch can be whipped up in no time! Sturdy and fun to carry, it has so many uses for both adults and children. You can use it on short outings when you don’t feel like being weighed down with your handbag. Kids can use them for holding marbles, toys, or even shells they find at the seaside. Can even be used on a night out if you use a more fashionable yarn. Crochet it in solid colours or any stripe combination. It’s a great way to use up any scrap yarn as well.

The uses and colour combos for this Wrist Pouch are only limited to your imagination. So get crocheting!
