I have recently been going through some long forgotten patterns in my WIP bins. I found a half-done snowfall pouch, and thought maybe I was time to give it a new life!
Back when I published my snowfall hat, I wanted to make all the patterns I could think of with that cute stitch. It looks so pretty and is so easy to do.
I still have quite a few half-done “snowfall” projects using this technique, and I hope I can get to all of them.
Although the technique does has an inherit wintry feel, this pouch is definitely note solely a cold weather project. Making it in bright colors would so fun and perfect for any season.
I used WeCrochet Shine Worsted to make this cute little crochet pencil pouch. Shine is one of my very favorite cottons to work with. It is a cotton and beechwood blend, so it has a silky texture and sheen that you won’t find with other cotton yarns, and it still made of all-natural fibers.

I like baby – toddler clothes. We have six Great Grand children in our family with more coming.
four girls 1-3yrs and two great-grandsons. 1 yr and one 7 months. They are fun to crochet for, but I have rhuemtoid arthritis that is making my hands very sore. Some knuckles are getting bigger etc.
I try to have 3 to 6 projects going at once, if my hands hurt from doing one stitch, there are times I can switch projects with different stitches and I can get a little more out of them.
