The universe is full of magical things.  -Eden Phillpotts

When my boys were little, they would collect all sorts of treasures along our afternoon adventures to the woods or the beach.  Pockets full of shells, rocks, acorns, and other objects would make their way home to our nature table (or wash machine).  These little treasures were pure magic at that age and I thought that a pouch to carry them in might be even more special.

They’re also perfect as a small jewelry bag or to ear buds safe and tangle free!

Treasure Pouch Supplies

  • A few yards of scrap sock yarn
  • US 3 / 3.25mm double pointed needles
  • Darning needle

        I appreciate you letting me know, Barb! For some folks it works, so I’m looking into why it’s not working for everyone. I’ve added a “download now” link through Ravelry until I can get it figured out!

            I used 4 dpn’s.

  1. Such pretty little pouches. My children collect so many little nature finds that they always need pockets or little bags. The yarn you used is just perfect.

  2. Thanks for sharing! My kids would love some of these. You are so right you can never have too many treasure pouchs. 🙂

  3. this is lovely .. just right to hold such treasure

  6. Thanks for this ovely pattern. I found it yesterday, and just hat to try it out. I like how the top, that looks almost wowen contrrasts with the tapering stockinettte bottom.
    I have one sligt misgiving. Please make a note, that you're going to use the yo holes in round 7 for a cord. I always knit my yo's twisted so as NOT to make holes, and had to "knit backwards" some rows. My mistake for not reading through the whole thing before starting 😉

  7. I just discovered this pattern when a friend of mine made one. I adore this! Thank you so much for putting it out here for us to knit.

    I made one of these while waiting. They knit up so quickly and are so pretty! I think I might surprise some of my kids with them tucked under a pillow.

      Hi Jodi,
      Were you able to get the sign up to work?

  10. Hi!
    I clicked the confirmation button in the email but it just takes me to your sites homepage and not to the pattern…
    Is there something else I should do?

    1. theresilientknitter says:

      Hi Anne! Be sure to check your email. There will be a confirmation link and once you click that your download should pop up for you. If you have any issues, don’t hesitate to contact me directly.

  11. Hey there! I’m still pretty new to knitting and I’m wondering what you mean by knit into the front of the yarn over means? I tried to YouTube but nothing came up.

    1. theresilientknitter says:

      Hi Victoria,
      The yarn over is worked to create a hole in the fabric for the cord to feed through. Knit into the front of the stitch means to knit as you normally would. It will look a little odd and you should be able to feel a small gap in the fabric. If you were to knit into the back of the stitch, you would twist the stitch and close the hole. Let me know how it goes! p.s. You’re right, I couldn’t find any videos showing how to knit this either. I’ll be sure to add it to my list. 🙂

      1. Thank you! This was so helpful 🙂 can’t wait to finish this cute project!

        1. theresilientknitter says:

          You’re welcome! I’m glad to have helped.

  12. My grandson lives in another country, and loves to go walking and collecting by the sea. We are going to visit in two weeks, and I am going to knit a supply of these today, to take to him. They will be Granny’s Best Present Ever, I am sure. Imagine them full of treasures – shells, bits of polished glass, a crab back – he will be delighted. And Granny will be able to keep her hat on, instead of it being filled to the brim with findings. Thank you so much for the pattern.

    1. theresilientknitter says:

      You’re very welcome. I hope that your Granny’s Best Present Ever turned out to be a great hit.

  13. As a very inexperienced knitter, I needed the pattern to specify double pointed needles. I figured it out on my own after some trial and error 🙂
