This is the variety of belt pouch that I have made for when I'm LARPing in Nero. I've discovered quickly that you really can't have too many pouches--I made two for myself and one for my boyfriend, and immediately he asked me for two more! I hope people like this pattern...in the picture I have a handkerchief, a set of runes, a pendulum, a tealight and some matches in there. Incredibly useful, since my gypsy is a fortune-teller.
Oh! Don't forget, if you test this pattern and have questions or find a mistake, please leave a comment and let me know so I can fix it! Thanks!

Join in one of the loops from the FLO stitches. It doesn't matter whether you start at the top or the bottom, but I prefer to start at the top so I make sure I have all 6 stitches accounted for. Ch3, 6dc across FLO loops. Make three more rows, join by sl st across the other set of FLO loops. You should have four rows for the belt loop. Finish off.
This is as long as you want it to be, there's nothing specific. Just chain your length and then sc back across. Weave through the pouch holes and Ta-Daaah!! You're Done!
