Mini Coin Pouch

This pattern is available for free.

I was interested by descriptions in books of various characters that carried things in pouches around their necks (Harry Potter for example). Half asleep last night, I decided to have a go at it. I knew it would have to be small so that it wouldn’t show through your clothes, and it had to be made of something that wouldn’t itch. So here it is, a really simple (barely worth even calling a pattern) bag that you can string up as a necklace if you’d like. Actually, you can do anything you like with it. The actual knitting took maybe an hour.

You’re going to need 3 double pointed needles. It’s knitted flat in a simple form of double knitting and the 3rd needle will be used in the BO.

Gauge is relatively unimportant. I used whatever needles I had on hand, and since this is such a quick knit it would probably be simpler to just knit the thing in your chosen needles and frog if you don’t like the size rather than bothering with checking gauge.

Note as of 9/18/2010: Moved to more stable host.
