Here's an opportunity to practice various pattern stitches and make something useful at the same time. Fill them with your favorite scent and place them in your lingerie drawer. Use them to hold jewelry while traveling. Jazz them up with beads or embroidery. Make them for family and friends. The pouches are worked in variations of knit 2, purl 2. They are worked on 38 stitches and 40 rows, but the sizes vary slightly depending on take-up of the patterns.
