Creating Pouch Directions with Pictures
Visual directions are also available in the video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hljFcmVT3hI&t=1051s
With the dowel rod attached, lay out the rectangle that you have created, finding the top of the 6 rows of single crochets, begin to fold the bottom up so that what was the top row of single crochet stitches facing you is now the bottom row. This should cause the top of the pouch to align with the first single crochet row below the bottom of the 2 double crochet chain space rows.
Starting on one side of the pouch at the beginning of the two sides meeting, sl st into first st of the sides (going through both layers) to secure yarn, starting in the same st, sc evenly down the side through both layers until you reach the bottom. Fasten off end.
Count the number of stitches done for this side.
Repeat the same process on the other side going in the opposite direction making sure to keep the same number of stitches.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
How you would like to hang this is entirely up to you.
You can hang this by using nails or hooks at each end of the dowel rod, you can create a braid or a chain to go across and attach to each end of the dowel rod.
Directions are available in the video for creating a simple yarn hanger by taking yarn and looping it through the end stitches below the dowel rod and then tying off at the top with 2 knots
