Ear buds Key Chain Pouch

Here is an easy fast project that can be done in under an hour. It can be turned into a coin pouch with a zipper sewn instead of a button. The buttons I used in this project are mine and made from porcelain clay but any cute button will do.


A small amount of worsted Weight yarn
Key chain hoop, lanyard clip
E (3.5) hook whatever gauge gives you a tight crochet stitch
waxed thread or dental floss
stitch marker or different colored yarn to mark your round
yarn needle

Stitches Used

Single Crochet – (SC)
Single Crochet Increase (sc inc)
Slip Stitch - ( SLST)
Magic Loop

We will be working in a spiral

Round 1

Make magic loop, crochet 6 sc into loop, pull to close.

Round 2

2 SC in each SC stitches around (12 st)

Round 3

Add marker if you need to, * sc in next st, 2 sc inc into next repeat from * (24st)

Round 4

Move marker up,* 1 sc in the next 3 st, 2sc into next repeat from* ( 30 st)

Round 5

Move marker up, *sc into the next 4 st, 2 sc inc next repeat from* into each st all around (36 st)

finish off and weave in tails.

The second circle is done the same as the first but instead of f finishing off leave on the hook!

Putting together your pouch

Holding the two circles with wrong sides facing each other and line up your stitches with the front and back pieces.

Sc into the back and front of circles. Take hook off and use the dental floss or waxed thread to pull the yarn loop from your first sc through the button holes.

Once through add hook and continue sc around both circles stopping 5-6 stitches from the button.

You should have a small opening if you want it smaller add more sc. If you want it bigger pull out some stitches.

Once you find a size you like crochet a chain loop from the last stitch to fit around button and then slst into the last sc stitch. Break off yarn leaving enough to sew on key-chain loop or clip using a yarn needle. Weave in any extra tails of yarn.

Yay! You are done!
