Pom-Pom headphone case/ trinket box: FREE PATTERN!

Konichiwa!

Like I promised here is the pattern for the pom-pom box I created recently :)



You will need:
  • Cream worsted/ Aran Weight Yarn (for case)
  • A small amount of embroidery thread (to sew on button)
  • A small/medium sized clear button
  • A small amount of DK yarn the same colour as embroidery thread (for pom pom)
  • A 3.5 mm crochet hook

Top:

rnd 1: Make a magic ring, 6dc (6sts)
rnd 2: 2dc into each st (12sts)
rnd 3: *1dc, 2dc into next st* Repeat from * to * around (18 sts)
rnd 4: *2dc, 2dc into next st* Repeat from * to * around (24 sts)
rnd 5: *3dc, 2dc into next st* Repeat from * to * around (30sts)
rnd 6 -8 : 1dc into each st around (30sts)
When rnd 8 is completed ch 5 and slst into 2nd chain from hook. This completes button loop. Depending on the button size this may need to be smaller or larger so please check.


Bottom:

rnd 1: Make a magic ring, 6dc (6sts)
rnd 2: 2dc into each st (12sts)
rnd 3: *1dc, 2dc into next st* Repeat from * to * around (18 sts)
rnd 4: *2dc, 2dc into next st* Repeat from * to * around (24 sts)
rnd 5- 8: 1dc into each st around (24sts)
Fasten off.

To make up:

Overlap top and bottom half slighlty and sew together, sew about a length of 1 cm at the back of case (opposite button loop) The case should now open and close with the seam acting as a hinge. Darn in any lose ends. Close the case fully, the bottom half should roll up inside top half slightly. Mark the position of the button, by using position of loop as a guide and sew button to case using embroidery thread. Make pom pom and sew to top of case. if pom pom is too large trim slighlty.

Voila! you now have a new little pom-pom box :) enjoy..............................

  1. hey i found this pattern and i love it, but i have a question:
    "rnd 4: *2dc, 2dc into next st* Repeat from * to * around (24 sts)" does that equal 2dc into each stitch? cause if it does, dont you get 36 sts at the end of round?

  2. no, sorry it means, *1dc, 1dc and then 2dc into the next st* repeat around.

    Hope this makes sense :) Happy crocheting!

  3. I didn't succeed in making a sphere although I followed your instructions carefully, no idea what went wrong but I altered the design a bit and now have a flat case.

  4. Im sorry about that, It could just be using a different yarn or crocheting more tightly or loosely. I have seen it on ravelry though and it is beautiful! :)
