Pattern Description:

Do you have more than a handful of knitting needles? Is the right size always missing when you need it? This double or single point needle case may be your answer. The case holds twelve sets of Double or single point knitting needles securely. Good for needles up to 14 inches and two large pockets accommodate very large needles for working with chunky yarns.
The fold over flap at top keeps needles securely in place, and a loop and button closure makes sure it won't come undone in your project bag.
Some of the photographs show an optional raveled edge trim, which is explained at the end of the pattern, along with other variations.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Open: 13 inches wide by 16 inches tall with 4 inch top flap and a flap with button and loop closure
  • Closed: 4 1/2 inches wide by 16 inches tall

Materials:

  • This pattern can be made of most any fabric. In one example I used all quilter's cottons, and in another I made the outer of washable linen and the lining and pockets of brightly colored batiste. Yet another combines sturdy duck cloth on the outside and embroidered muslin for the liner and pockets. Since this case will get lots of handling, it is advisable to make it out of a fabric that is washable. You could even make the outside of something really durable like vinyl.
  • There are many options for making this bag: use all one color of fabric, use one color for the outside and pocket, and a second for the lining, or make them all different. If you are going to make multiple bags, then it makes the most sense to mix up the fabrics. Also if you have lots of remnants or a good stash, you may not need to buy a thing.
  • If all pieces made of same fabric you will need 3/4 yard
  • If outer, lining and pocket are made of three different fabrics, you will need 1/2 yard each for the outer and the lining, and a 1/4 yard or a fat quarter for the pocket
  • If you want to use fat quarters, you will need one for the body, one for the lining and one for the pocket, both flap pieces and the button loop, for a total of three FQ.
  • Sewing machine with standard presser foot and ability to sew straight forward and back - no fancy stitching required.
  • Rotary cutting tools (self healing mat, rotary cutter, quilter's ruler) Note: pieces may be cut by hand with scissors, but since there are no curves, it will be faster to use a rotary cutter if you have one - especially if you are going to make several bags.
  • Seam ripper, thread clipper or embroidery scissors, sewing gauge or ruler.
  • Fabric markers (I prefer washout)
  • Newspaper or a roll of butcher paper if you are going to make pattern pieces and cut with scissors

You Will Also Need:

  • Thread to coordinate with fabrics, 1 button (... to 1 1/2 inch diameter) , 3/4 yards of 1 to 1 1/2 inch grosgrain ribbon
