Back to School: Pencil Case Pattern


This is a super simple pencil case, made in single crochet stitches, so it works up fast.  All you need to do is attach a zipper!

Materials:
H Hook

Caron Simply Soft yarn in your choice of color (Mine is Sage)

Zipper in your choice of color (Mine was 12 inches and black, but you could choose a longer or shorter zipper if you change the size of the case and choose a better coordinating zipper-I used what I had on hand)

Sewing needle & coordinating thread (Choose a color close to your yarn color, as some of your stitches may appear through your yarn on the outside)

Ch 32 (or close to the desired length of your bag, it will be slightly longer than this by the end)
R1: sc in 3rd ch from hook and each ch to last ch.  3 sc in last ch.  Now work on the other side of the ch's.  1 sc in ea ch to last ch.  3 sc in last ch.  Join with sl st in top of 1st sc made.
R2: Ch 2.  Sc in each st to center st of 3 sc cluster (the 2nd sc made in the last ch st).  3 sc in this st.  1 sc in each st to center st of 3 sc cluster (the 2nd sc made in the last ch st).  3 sc in this st.  1 sc in next st.  Join with sl st to top of first sc made.
R3 - R10 (or until desired height is achieved): Ch 2.  Sc in each st around case.  Join with sl st in top of first sc made.

When finished, tie off and hide ends.  Sew zipper along the inside top of the bag using a needle and thread - or a sewing machine if you prefer!
