Day Two’s project of our Christmas Gifts in July series is this pretty Southwest-style Crochet tablet pouch. Isn’t it lovely? I am becoming more and more obsessed with Modern Southwest style, so if you like it too, you might enjoy some of the projects that I have on my calendar for fall. Did you see my Southwest Serape Lovey? It turned out quite adorable!
This pouch is worked entirely in sc, so it’s very simple. The only thing you need to keep in mind is that you must work in the BLO (back loops only) so the pattern lines up correctly. This means you work only through the one back loop, instead of both the loops on the top of the stitch. I’ve also included a video that explains how to change colors. Even if you have never done colorwork or changed colors in the middle of the row, you can do this! The video will help you and I am sure you will be hook on tapestry crochet in no time.

Start with turquoise:
Ch 26. (Use the hooks that makes this foundation chain approx. the same width as your tablet)
1. (1st line of the graph): Work 2 sc in 2nd ch from the hook. Sc in each ch across, leaving last ch unworked (22 sts). Work 4 sc in last ch. Working across other side of chain, sc in each ch across. Join. (54 sts)
2. – 31. Follow the graph, treating each square as a sc and working in Back Loops Only. Begin each round with a ch 1 and join with a sl st. You will work the graph twice. One you finish stitch 27, begin again at stitch one and repeat the entire graph once more.
Once you are finished with the graph, continue onto row 32 (below the graph).
For help with switching colors and working the tapestry technique, watch this video:
32. Continue with the same color as row 31.
Ch 1. Sc in next 40 sts. Ch 10. Sc in same st. Sc in each remaining st. Join with first st.
To finish your crochet tablet pouch, sew a button opposite of the loop, and make sure all your ends are woven in.
Isn’t it fabulous? I can’t wait to see your color combinations!
