Squidlet Pouch Free Crochet Pattern

The Squidlet Pouch is a free crochet pattern I came up with it to give you some ideas of what you can do with one Squidlet (mini skein).  Squidlets are also great for heels and toes of socks or to use as an accent color in your project. This pouch just gives you an idea about how much yarn one Squidlet is.

When I shared the photo on Instagram you guys came up with some great ideas to use the pouch for. Coin purse, to hold dice for games, stitch marker or notions holder. I stuck a small mason jar in mine to use as a crochet hook holder. Love it!
