Crochet Avnaas Pineapple Pouch/Sachet Pattern

Namaste friends,

Hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe.

In this post, I am sharing my notes for a pineapple pouch pattern.
Many years ago I made a pouch from a pic I saw on the net. When a lot of crocheters liked it and asked for the chart I would send them the link, but many of them wanted a written pattern.
So here I am sharing my notes for the pineapple pouch. I hope you find it useful.

Now let's crochet the opening at the top of the pouch.

Round 1: Attach your thread with an sc to any ch at the side of the pouch, * ch 5, sk 3, sc in next st, rep from * around, for the last loop work ch 2 sk 3, dc in beg sc. (14 ch-5 loops)   Do not worry if you have more loops or fewer loops, that's okay.

Round 2: *Ch 5, sc in next ch-5 sp, rep from * around ending with ch 2 and dc in the dc below.

Rounds 3 to 5: Rep Round 2. 

To finish you can add a round of sc or your favourite border. I add scallops or picots whatever I'm drawn to at that time. :)

Pineapple pouch edging


Drawstring: You can use a satin ribbon in a matching or contrasting colour. I crocheted a length of chains then made an sc in the 2nd ch and then in every st till the end. Weave your drawstring through the loops of Round 3 or 4.

For the orange pouch I used a
cord lock like this one.

Crochet Sheldon Beanie Free Pattern

Namaste Friends!

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy.

The year 2021 is coming to an end and it looks likes the coronavirus will be (sadly) accompanying us into 2022. And with the constant mutations, there is not much we can do to prevent it except look for ways to fight back. 

But let us look at positive things like the upcoming festive season! 
Here, in India it was festivals galore in the last few months, leaving me very little time for blogging.

I have a free beanie pattern for you today which I hope you will find useful for gifting or for yourself.

It is the Sheldon Beanie named after my favourite character in The Big Bang Theory
In fact, I love all the main characters in the series and it is my favourite series.

Crochet free beanie pattern

The pattern is for a unisex hat and also one of the reasons I named it Sheldon. So if you are looking forward to making something handmade for your Dad, Grandad, brother or that someone special, I hope you will give it a try.

Size: Hat measures approximately 22 inches (56 cms) around and 8 inches (20 cms) in height. (Adult size)

Materials:


Gauge: 18 stitches = 4” in Alpine stitch pattern.

Notes:

This pattern uses US terminology.

The hat is worked top-down, in the round without turning.

Chain 3 at beg of round counts as a DC.

Chain 1 and chain 2 at beg of round does not count as a stitch.     

Abbreviations:

beg – beginning,

ch - chain,

st – stitch,

sp – space,

sl st – slip stitch,

dc – double crochet,

yo – yarn over hook,

flo – front loop only

blo – back loop only

fpdc – front post double crochet,


Pattern stitches:

Fpdc: Front Post Double crochet – YO and insert hook from front to back between the posts of the first and second dc of the round below, then insert hook from back to front between the posts of the second and third dc. YO and draw the yarn around the post of the stitch. You now have three loops on the hook. YO and draw the yarn through two loops on the hook, twice. One Fpdc is complete.

To know more about Post stitches check out this detailed post HERE.
Round 11 and 12 are worked in the front and back loops respectively, see THIS POST for different ways to work into a stitch.

    To start the Alpine stitch panel:

    Note: Change to Colour B if using two colours or just continue with colour A.

    Note: Pull up the fpdc to the height of the dc, this will prevent this round from folding over.

  • Round 16: Ch 2 (does not count as st), fpdc around the ch 3 below the ch 2 in Round 14, dc in next st in Round 15, *sk next st, fpdc around the dc below, dc in next st, rep from * around ending with sl.st in the 1st fpdc of the round. (84 sts)

  • Round 18: Repeat Round 14.
  • Round 19: Repeat Round 13.
  • Round 20: Repeat Round 16.

    The height of the hat will now be around 6.75 inches approximately.

  • Round 21: Repeat Round 11. (84 sc)
  • Round 22: Working in the unused back loops of Round 20, repeat Round 13. (84 sc)
  • Round 23 - 27: Repeat Round 13. Fasten off. Weave ends in using a yarn needle.

    The height for an adult hat is usually around 8.5 inches so feel free to increase or reduce the number of these single crochet rounds to get the height you desire.

In the Blue and white Sheldon beanie above, I have omitted Rounds 11 and 21 which give a textured edge to the Alpine stitch section. This also means that Rounds 12 and 22 will be worked in both loops of the previous round.

If anything above does not make sense feel free to contact me 😀.

You may have noticed a bunch of advertisements popping up and I know they can be irritating. This is something new for me and I am just learning and getting the hang of it, so until then please bear with me (and the ads 😀).
