Continue to add more rows – if necessary – by adding one more SC on each side of the row.
Join 4 sides together by the length.
Cut and weave in yarn.

Top of pouch

You get a bowl after joining all 4 sides.
The top is made up of the side’s beginning and end stitches.
I made 7 rows for each side hence I should try to make out 14 stitches at the top for each side, ∴ a total of 56 stitches around.
Insert hook in any stitch at the top, preferably the centre of the sides.
