There's a story behind this pattern, but first I'll give you the basics. Easy to learn techniques are used to create a useful and cute roll up case for knitting needles, crochet hooks, pencils, markers or whatever you want!
Now, for the story. I had wanted a roll case for my knitting needles, then for my paint brushes... pencils, crochet hooks, makers, you name it! I decided, about night fall, on a drive from Texas to New York, to go ahead and do the sketches and pattern writing. It wasn't comfortable-writing a pattern by map light, but I had plenty of time to pour over ideas to be sure the design was sound. I've made umpteen gillion of these, and hope you will too-and share any stories about it you have!
