Toggle Pouch

This pouch can be used for many different things.  If you want to hold change or something small, just don’t make the button hole, and sew on a zipper.  I made mine with a toggle, of course, so I don’t know how it turns out with a zipper, or the length of the zipper required.


  • Worsted Weight yarn, any colour
  • 4.0 mm crochet hook
  • 1 1/2″ toggle
  • darning needle
  • tape measure
  • scissors


4 1/2″x6 1/2″ or the desired length


Base rnd:  Ch 40.  Join to form ring.  Sc 40.

Rnd 2:  Sc 40.  [40]

Rnd 3:  Sc 8, ch 4 skipping 4, sc 28.  [40]

Rnd 4:  Sc 40.  [40]

Repeat rnd 4 until bag measures 5″.

Next rnd:  Sc 18, dec.  Place st marker on dec.  Sc 18, dec.  Place st marker on dec.  [38]

Next rnd:  Sc to marker, dec.  Move marker to new dec.  Sc to next marker, dec.  Move marker to new dec.  [36]

Next rnd:  Sc to marker, dec.  Move marker to new dec.  Sc to next marker, dec.  Move marker to new dec.  [34]

Cont working last two rows until you have a 1 1/2″ hole remaining.  Fasten off and sew the opening closed flat.  Weave in tails.

    What a cute pattern. I belong to a group that crochets and knits. We have a great time and enjoy our weekly meetings. In one of our meetings, we discussed what abbreviations stood for. TOG came up and instead of the correct meaning of TOGETHER , a few of the ladies thought it meant TOGGLE.
    I need to share this pattern with them.

  4. I’m experiencing a bit of problems studying the conclusion of the clause. The closing paragraph gets split halfway through. You should have a look at that.Nevertheless, the rest of the read was great!

    How about making a flap with the toggle on the base, and the hole or loop on the flap? Would that help keep stuff from falling out?
    Very cute.

      hi! Sure you can! Maybe after two or three sc rnds you could dc a round and then go on in sc as usual, and then make a chain to weave through the dc’s later.
      Hope this helps!
