Crochet Couch Pocket Pattern

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a great day. For this last Father’s Day, I made my dad this couch pocket pattern. It can hold your remote, book, phone, or any other small thing. I thought I would then publish the pattern. I made up this pattern.

Level: Easy. You need to know some basic stitches, know how to read a pattern, and how to do some border/seaming techniques, though I will explain this in the post.


  • Worsted weight yarn
  • 5 mm crochet hook or hook suggested on yarn package
  • Yarn needle

The yarn I used was just some acrylic yarn I got from a Goodwill. Any worsted weight yarn will work. You’ll need quite a bit. I think that the yarn I had was one of the Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo skeins, but some of it was gone. I think you’ll be good with a regular Red Heart Super Saver skein which is 7 oz.


  • The chains at the beginning of the row do not count as a stitch
  • There is no gauge for this pattern. However, if you are a more loose crocheter, you may want to go down a hook size. If you are a tight crocheter, you may want to go up a hook size.
  • The yarn doesn’t have to be acrylic. Just make sure it is washable, and you like to crochet with it!
  • The number at the end of the row is the number of stitches you should have

st: stitch
ch: chain
sc: single crochet
dc: double crochet
sl st: slip stitch
rep: repeat


Row 1: Ch 46. In the second chain from the hook, do a sc. Sc in the rest of the chains. 45

Row 2: Ch 1. Turn. Sc in each st. 45

Rep row 2 untill the piece is 18 inches.

Next row: Ch 2. Turn. Dc in every st in this row. 45

Rep the previous row until the piece is 40 in. (counting the sc rows.)

Note: if you run out of yarn during any of the later dc rows, it is okay. This part won’t really be seen much, because it will be tucked under the couch. So, as long as you use the same sized yarn, and the same hook, it will probably be fine. Like you can see from the pictures, I had to change the color, but it doesn’t look too bad!

Fasten off. Fold the side with the sc up about 6-7 inches. This is what makes the pocket part. Sc along the side. You can just attach the yarn at the bottom corner, sc the two sides together, and continue crocheting along the side until you get to the top. When you are at the pocket, you will be working over 2 layers of the crocheted fabric. But when you keep going, you’ll be only going over 1. Sc along the top, and then along the other side. Make sure to crochet the two sides together at the end. Fasten off.

Note: there’s no perfect number of st on the side of the crocheted piece. As a general rule, you can just do 1 sc per row of sc and 2 sc per row of dc. Or you can just do it to what feels good and even. 🙂

Weave in all ends! You are done! Have a great day and a great weekend!
