It seems that masks are going to be here to stay for a while, so I figured it was time to create a little pouch for us to store them in. I found myself wishing I had created one sooner, as I had to use a mask that had been left in the compartment of my car door and it was a bit grotty when I pulled it out to use it!
I have made this one using a triangle and a square from the Hooked on Crochet Club – you might even notice that the triangle is the same one that I used to make the barefoot sandals that I shared last month. As with the sandals I have used Scheepes Legacy cotton in ecru Nr10 and a 2.5mm hook. I chose a button that was the right size to fit through the spaces already in the triangle.
To make it I have created 2 squares in the same size and joined them along 3 edges before adding the triangle to create the flap. I’ve then sewn the button onto the front square. You can make this with any square and yarn that you have. You might find it better to use a 4ply or lighter yarn though so that the pouch isn’t too bulky or too big. This one is roughly 10cm x 10cm so sits nicely into jeans or jacket pockets.
If you don’t have a triangle pattern you could use a third square or you could keep it to 2 squares and create a loop to button the top closed. You’re only limited by your imagination!
I’ll be showing my Clubhouse members exactly how I made this pouch in our week 2 Hook and Learn lesson in the Clubhouse. Every week in the Hooked on Crochet Club I have a live tutorial that covers a pre-planned project or a tutorial for a stitch or technique that members need on a current project – either their own or a clubhouse one.
I’ll be sending a copy of this washcloth to all of the members of my Hooked on Crochet Club this weekend to say thank you for being a member!
