Rosary Pouch

by Daisy

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.

I made these AGES ago, (to go with some baptism rosaries), but we’ve quite a few requests for the pattern, so I had to accost a previous recipient and ask to see it. Embarrassing!
This pattern uses afghan stitch, but I used a regular needle since the work is only 15 stitches wide. If you are unfamiliar with afghan stitch check out this site for pictorial instructions.

Rosary Pouch

E or F hook, worsted weight cotton

ROWS 1-25: Work Afghan Stitch for every row. You should have 15 lps on your hk after each row. Do not fasten off.
HANDLE: Chain 25 and secure to left top corner.
CROSS: Using a yarn needle and yellow bulky baby yarn, stitch cross on second row from top (row 24) and start on the 7th stitch from the left. That, or just center it as you see fit. (Picture below is clickable for larger image) Outline cross in pink bulky baby yarn.
FINISHING: Fold the bottom to the top, putting wrong sides together and stitch sides with yarn needle and your original yarn.

Fasten off. Weave in ends.


P.S.: We’re accepting entries for a Giveaway until Jan. 27. See what it’s all about HERE.

Thank you so much for this. I’ve been looking for rosary patterns for some time now. I also want to make some decade wrist-lets.

I am interested in making your pattern. If it is okay with you, I would like to make these and either sell them or give them away (along with a purchase). I would provide a link to your website so you could be recognized as the designer of the pouch. Please let me know if this is acceptable to you.
