I use US Crochet stitch terminology.
Due to the nature of this pattern – the yarn and hook used is only a suggestion and any substitute may be used.
Size of finished product will vary depending on yarn and also size of hook used.


Special abbreviation: Puff Cluster (PC)
*(yarn over hook, insert hook in next SC, yarn over hook, pull loop through, yarn over hook, pull through first 2 loops on hook) 3 times in same SC*, skip next SC. Repeat from * to * in next SC, yarn over hook, pull through all 7 loops on hook – one PC made.
With yarn:
CH 44
Row 1: 1 SC in 2nd CH from hook, 1 SC in each CH to end, turn
Row 2: CH4, skip first SC, * 1 PC over next 3 SC, CH2, repeat from * ending with 1 PC over last 3 SC, CH1, 1DC in CH1, turn
Row 3: CH1, skip first DC, 1 SC in 1CH space, *1 SC in top of PC, 2 SC in 2 CH space, repeat from * ending with 1 SC in top of last PC, 1 SC under 4CH, 1 SC in 3rd CH of 4CH, turn
Row 2 and 3 form the pattern, repeat 3 times more. 
Row 10: For this row only work into back loops. CH1, 1 SC into each ST until end, turn (43 SC)
Row 11-23: CH1, 1 SC into each ST until end, turn (on last row do not turn)
Continue working in the round
Rnd 24-27: CH1, 1 SC into each ST until end, SL ST into first SC (86 SC)
Rnd 28: CH 10, SL ST into same ST to form a loop.
NOTE: if you wish to put in a zipper SL ST loosely into each ST until end.
Optional – To insert button loops: SL ST into each ST until back section. Make 5 marks with pins evenly spaced along the back section. *SL ST into each ST until mark, CH 10, SL ST into next ST. Repeat from *until end. Fasten off and weave in ends. Add buttons
After lining – I used press buttons on the inside (the zipper I had intended to use for this project got feet and disappeared somewhere in my daughter’s room).
Join yarn with a SC at the sides, work several SC to join sides together OR whip-stitch sides together. Weave in ends.


I took the opportunity to do some recycling too –
and used one of my daughter’s old sleeping shorts for the lining.
I am NOT a sewing expert ( I actually do not really have the talent for it) –
But I did want to show how I did it – I am not claiming in the least that this is the correct way 🙂

I have been a crochet designer for more than 10 years. I love to think outside the box and to try and do things a bit differently. I love to learn new techniques and to challenge myself. I firmly believe that crochet should fun and evoke joy and pleasure. Creating and designing is one of my life's passions.

    Thank you so much 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for the cute pencil case pattern, I love it. I never would have thought of using the sleeping shorts to make the lining, that really IS a good idea, and great recycling idea too!! I usually take anything with usable fabric and cut it up for quilt blocks. I have really been into recycling old Jeans in quilt backings.
    Anyway, I want to thank you again for ALL you do sharing your patterns, and all your talent.
