I’m supposed to teach a high school knitting class soon…so…I’ve designed this as an initial project for a new young knitter because it’s fast and flexible. The result is a loosely knit pouch, perfect for that trusty graphing calculator or a locker stash of girl supplies. But, if stitches are wonky, no worries! It can be felted (shrunk on purpose) into a pouch suitable for a cell phone and some lip gloss…or the dude’s equivalent of lip gloss, whatever that is. (Dudes knit, too.) It’s knit in garter stitch, and uses the techniques of casting on, making a button hole, casting off and seaming. For the sake of my own sanity, I’m not including details on the techniques here, assuming you’ll find those elsewhere in much better terms than I could offer.
