It's a small pouch anyway. Measuring approximately 6 inches wide and about 9 inches tall. It consisted of only single crochet (sc) sc and a little bit of double crochet (dc). The actual pattern has less rows, but, because I used a thinner yarn, I had to add like 10 more rows to get it to the height that I want it to be. I also added the dc, which the original pattern does not have, to add to the height. It's quicker that way than adding just sc, as I had a dateline to meet.
While I was working on it, my hubby kept aksing me if I am doing a cap for my sis. LOL! Yup, if you turn it upside down, it does look like a cap. *grin*
The pouch was done using MINLON yarns. I did not have that much trouble with the yarn splitting and breaking as I had with the pink yarn I was working with to make the cat's head, which was also a MINLON. So, I kind of enjoyed working on the pouch, especially since I was making it to give it away as a birthday present to my sis.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Lin! HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Azan too!
Having completed the pouch, I am now working on another crochet piece, also a pattern from the same book. This time, I want to try to make a mini bag. Why mini? Because I want to learn the basics of making a bag first, but not wanting to spend too much time on it then if I were to make the normal size bag. I don't want to start feeling intimidated, and abandoning the project halfway if I can't see the light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak.
I will surely put up a progress report on it as I work on it as I foresee myself working on it for at least a week or so, if not more. So, stay tuned! *wink*
