Hello soldier, want some chap-stick?

OK that is either the oddest blog post title or the best pick-up line ever..not sure which LOL! BTW ladies, feel free to use it! šŸ˜€ after making the chap stick amulets for my daughters I wanted to make something for the boy to keep his chapstick in (the beads and tassel on the amulet was a bit too girly) so Ā he asked if I could knit a camouflage pouch for him. I told him it could have a lanyard clip (and NOT be a girly necklace) and he loved the idea:

DCF 1.0

I picked up the lanyard with the LED flashlight at Target in the dollar spot and simply slipped the clip through one of the spaces made by the double crochet (oh and BTW I checked in the UK what they call a “treble” is what we call a double crochet but sometimes we, in the US, call a triple crochet a treble.) This pouch is worked on the round until you reach the desired length then just work back and forth to make the flap closure. Stitch up the bottomĀ and sew on a button. there will be enough room between the DC to slip a small button through, no button-hole needed! There isĀ even enough room for a few pieces of gum and change for the vending machine, what boy wouldn’t like that? Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
