Pineapple Pouch (Free Crochet Pattern)

Hello my fellow crocheters,

Here's my pineapple pouch design!  What a fun DIY project for Summer, don't you think?  With a nifty, little drawstring feature, I can see this pineapple pouch working well as a cute party favor bag, or as a soap saver pouch!  

It's actually modeled after my soap saver pouch from the Tea Rose Spa Set.  It will fit a standard bar of soap very nicely, and you can use the drawstring to cinch it shut and hang it in the shower! 

The best part about this pineapple pouch pattern is that it's super easy and quick to work up, taking less than 30 minutes.  Talk about rapid!  

Want to see a quick video intro of the pouch?  Check it out below!

It also doesn't use up a whole lot of yarn, so it can be a great stash buster if you have extra cotton yarn lying around.  I used Lily Sugar n' Cream yarn in the colors Yellow and Sage Green, and thought it was the perfect choice!  This yarn feels so durable and I know it'll hold together well for long-term use.

The Pineapple Pouch is quick, easy, and suitable for beginners. There is no sewing or attaching of pieces needed, as the pouch portion is made in one piece with a separate string to cinch it up.  It's a 30-minute (or less!) project that you'll surely love to make! 

This cute drawstring bag is perfect for the Summer season! It will make a great gift as a party favor bag to fill with candies and treats, OR as a soap saver pouch to hold your favorite, fruity bar of soap.  They're also great to sell at craft fairs.

Finished Measurements: 
  • 5” wide x 5.5” tall when laid flat 

  • Beginner. Requires familiarity with stitches used (below) and attaching yarn.

Stitches/Terms Used (US Terminology):
  • MR: magic ring
  • Sk: skip

  • Ch: chain
  • Sl st: slip stitch 
  • Dc: double crochet

    NOTES (Read Before Beginning)

    1. The pouch is worked from bottom-up in one piece, with a separate string. 
    2. *Join with a sl st to 3rd ch on the starting ch-3. 
    3. “Dc-inc” is a double crochet increase; insert two dc in the same st.



    Start with the bottom yarn color (yellow). 
    R1: In a MR: ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc 11. *Join. (12 dc)
    R2: Ch 3, dc in same st. Dc-inc around. *Join. (24 sts)
    R3: Ch 4, dc in same st. (Sk a st, [dc, ch, dc] in next st) around. *Join.
    R4: Ch 4, dc in first ch-1 space. ([Dc, ch, dc] in next ch-1 space) around. *Join.
    R5-R7: Repeat R4
    Tip: To make this a longer pouch, feel free to add more repetitions of R4.

    Switch to the top section yarn color (green).

    R8: Ch 3, dc in first ch-1 space. (Dc-inc in next ch-1 space) around. *Join.

    R9: Sk 2 sts, dc 5 between the first dc-inc gap. Sl st in next dc-inc gap. (Dc 5 in next dc-inc gap, sl st in next dc-inc gap) around. (6 dc-5 shells)

    Fasten off and weave in the ends. 


    Use green-colored yarn. Start with a slightly longer tail (to make it easier to tie into a knot later). Ch 50, or however long you’d like the string to be. Fasten off with a slightly longer tail.


    Weave the string around R8, alternating over and under the dc-inc and gaps. Tie both ends of the chain together, and trim the ends. 

    Cinch the pouch closed by pulling on the string.


    The video below is for my Soap Saver Pouch pattern, which uses the same stitches.  The only difference is that it has different colors than the Pineapple Pouch.  If you follow instructions for this video tutorial, just remember to use Pineapple colors!
