I’ve always been a wallet girl. I like to carry my cash and cards in a neat wallet, sometimes pinched under my arm, or more recently, in a small, boho-style crossover bag. But what to do with change? I don’t use cash very often, but I still end up with jingling coins somewhere in my bag and I hate it. I decided it was high time to take a few minutes and make myself something: a crochet striped coin purse!
So adorable, right?
It’s the perfect size for carrying all your change, and tucks neatly into your bag or purse OR you can even hang it on your keyring.
[UPDATE: it’s also randomly the exact, perfect size to fit AirPods! Someone on your holiday list getting AirPods? Turn this crochet coin purse into a crochet AirPod pouch!

Note: for a better looking seam, drop your 1st color with 2 loops left on your hook from a half-done sc in the last stitch. Draw a loop of your second color on your hook and pull through as the last loop to complete the sc. Then join and continue on to the next row.
(use a hook one size smaller for your foundation chain)
Switch to 4mm hook.
1. Work 2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Sc in next 5 chs. Work 3 sc in last ch. Working across the other side of the chain: Sc in next 5 chs. Work another sc in first ch, same chain where you worked the first 2 (3 total) Join with a sl st. (16 sts)
2. Ch 1. Work 2 sc in next 2 sts. Sc in next 5 sts. Work 2 sc in next 3 sts. Sc in next 5 sts. Work 2 sc in last st. Join with sl st using 2nd color (22 sts)
3. Ch 1. Sc in each st around. Join with a sl st using 1st color. (22 sts)
4. Ch 1. Sc in each st around. Join with a sl st using 2nd color. (22 sts)
5. – 11. Alternate rows 3 and 4 respectively, changing colors each row.
12. Using first color, ch 1. Sc 19. Ch 8. Sc in next st. Sc in next 2 sts. Join with a sl st.
Fold the pouch flat. Work from the INSIDE of the pouch. Join yarn in the 1st st of round 12, using your third color (or the color you prefer).
1. Ch 1. Sc in same st. Sc in next 2 sts. Sk the 8-ch loop, but work sc in the next sc. It helps to fold down the chain like a flap to get it out of the way. (Be sure to fold it OUT, so it is outside the pouch when it’s done). Sc in next 4 sts. Turn. (8 sts)
2. – 5. Ch 1. Sc in each st. Turn. (8 sts)
6. Ch 1. Sc2tog. Sc 4. Sc2tog. Turn. (6 sts)
7. Ch 1. Sc in each st. Turn. (6 sts)
8. Ch 1. Sc2tog. Ch 2. Skip 2 sts. Sc2tog. Don’t break yarn, don’t turn.
Continuing where you left off, sc down the side of the flap, across the top of the pouch opening, and up the other side of the flap. Join with a sl st at the beginning of row 8.
Weave in ends.
Sew a button about 3 rows down from the top. You will want to leave a bit of space if you intend to use it as a crochet AirPods pouch, so the flap can accommodate the thickness of the case. If you want to use it for change, you can sew the button lower so the flap is flush when closed.
The little ring on the crochet coin pouch makes it perfect to keep on your keys! If you like the key fob, you can find the crochet pattern here. You can also attach using a carabiner or other hook.
