Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round, felting, knitting an i-cord

Pattern Description:

I think this pouch is perfect....perfect for shopping, stuffed with your plastic or nylon shopping bags. Perfect for carrying the plastic doggie doodoo bags you need for trips around the neighbourhood. Perfect for girls and guys. Perfect because it is felted and therefore it is *magical*. Clip this pouch onto your purse, belt buckle backpack, or laptop case. Carry it in your car or leave it handy by your door. This is an everyday pouch; adorable and practical. It's an addictive quick knit and a fabulous STASHBUSTER. One pattern purchase will yield many many gifts, so thank you for purchasing!

The yarn is held doubled throughout the pattern. The bottom of the pouch is knit flat, stitches are picked up, and the body is knit in the round. The flap is knit flat. It requires felting, a button, and a carabiner for clip-ability. An i-cord knitted at the flap end wraps around the button and tucks under itself to secure the flap, and the contents.
