Simply Seamless Pouch
Designed by Grace Schnebly
Variety is the spice of life right? Well the three versions of this purse allow you to personalize it to your style! You can knit the pouch plain to make a funky clutch, attach a strap to make a cute little wristlet, or add belt loops if you’re the kind of person who is always on the go. It’s the perfect size to hold your cell phone, mp3 player, and keys. This super simple purse would make a great last-minute gift especially since there is no seaming required!
This is a fun technique that allows you to knit a pouch flat, on straight needles. That’s right—no wrestling with DPNs or bulky seams here! Give it a try!
approx. 8" wide x 5" tall
1 ball of SWTC Karaoke in #198 New Splash (50% Soy Silk/50% Wool, 50 grams/100 meters)
4 – 5 st*/inch on size 6 needles in slip stitch pattern.
Slip Stitch Pattern (stockinette): k1, bring yarn to front, slip st purl wise, bring yarn to back
Cast on 64 sts on size 6 straight needles.
Place every other stitch (32 sts total) onto the stitch holder. This will allow you open up the pocket. Bind off the 32 stitches which remain on the needles. Transfer stitches from the stitch holder to needles and continue working in stockinette stitch until piece measures 3” from beginning of flap, ending on a purl row. Knit 15 sts, BO 2 sts, knit 15 sts to end of row. Next row, purl 15 sts, CO 2 sts, purl 15 sts to end of row (the previous two rows create a button hole). Continue in stockinette stitch for four more rows. BO all stitches. Weave in ends. Block piece to prevent flap from rolling.
Align button so that it matches the small hole created on the pouch’s flap. Attach the button to the front of pouch using the same yarn. Weave in all lose ends.
