Can i crochet a pencil case as a beginner?

Why not?

Like i said, i will share patterns of all levels, from beginner to advanced. And, some of the patterns i am going to share come with a youtube tutoril. Like this zipper bag tutorial.

But as a beginner, there are a few things you should look out before you attempt to crochet any new pattern.

What to look out for in a pattern as a beginner

Stitches used

If the stitches used are mode advanced, then it is best to not attempt the crochet pattern. Sometimes the stitches used are a combination of the basic crochet stitches, to make it look more complex, but if the combination is confusing you, then it is best to stick to the simple beginner friend cochet stitches like the half double crochet stitch.

Follow gauge

Be sure to follow the pattern gauge to get the exact same finish like that in the photo. If you are unsure of what a gauge is or how to work one, then be sure to learn the beginners guide to gauge swatch.

Access to all materials

Be sure to use all the materials mentioned in the crochet pattern and use them the way they are described in the crochet pattern. If you feel like changing a few things, then let the yarn be it. If you change too much, then you might end up confusing yourself.

Yarn weight

Thicker yarn is easier to work with unlike finer yarn. So for a beginner, make sure you are focusing on crochet patterns that are working with yarns between DK weight to chunky yarn. Plus, many of the patterns use worsted weight and bulky yarn, so they’ll work up relatively quickly.

Supplies for Crocheting Sandals

Here’s what you’ll need to crochet a pencil case.


Your crochet pencil case pattern will give you instructions for the correct yarn weight, and often recommend a specific yarn. For your convenience, I am going to give you my personal yarn preferences.

You can substitute yarns, but make sure to choose one that is a similar weight and fiber content. This will help you achieve the correct gauge, and ensure that your pencil cases have a similar drape to the one in the pattern photos.

Remember, whether you use the recommended yarn or not, it’s crucial to make a gauge swatch to make sure you’re on the right track.

How much yarn will you need? Depending on the size of your cochet pencil case, you want to make, or how many pencil cases you are making, the size will vary.

For small- medium sized pencil case, one skeins of yarn will be more than enough. Don’t worry; your pattern will let you know how much is necessary. Check out this Caron yarn or Lion brand yarn.


You’ll also need a crochet hook in the appropriate size. Again, your pattern will give you these details. Then, make a gauge swatch. After making your swatch, you’ll know whether you need to size up or down.

And, if you’re using a different yarn than the one specified in the pattern, you may need to adjust your hook size to meet the gauge.


In addition to yarn and a crochet hook, you’ll need a few other supplies before you get started on your new crochet pencil case.

  • Tape measure. A tape measure or ruler will help you take your gauge, check your finished dimensions, and make sure that your case is the right size.
  • Stitch markers will come in handy for marking your place as you work, especially if you’re working on a larger project.
  • Scissors to cut your yarn.
  • A tapestry needle is necessary to weave in ends and seam your finished pencil case together.
