Free Crochet Pattern: Back to School Pencil CaseBy Rachel Choi – 40 Comments
|In the spirit of “Back to School” season, here is a pattern for a simple pencil case! Feel free to mix and match colors. This is a beginner pattern, so color changing is not needed, but you can always change colors anywhere in the pattern to create stripes or ever make the flap or button a different color. This pencil case can also be used as a crochet hook case or even a glasses case. Let your imagination run wild!|
Finished Size: 3″ (7.5 cm) wide, 8″ (20 cm) tall
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 90 yards)
Crochet Hook G (4.00 mm)
Gauge: not very important. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough so that the pencils won’t fall out. You may also choose to line the pencil case if desired.
