Are you a teetotaler? Do you tote your tea with you? Maybe you’re a teetotaling tea toter! If so, you’ll need these handy wallets to keep your tea bags from shredding in the bottom of your purse. Knit flat and seamed up the sides, they even hold the larger sized Tazo or Numi tea bags.

I made mine with kitchen cotton, but any worsted weight scraps will corral your tea bags just as handily.

I’ve had a couple of people with the same confusion about row 6 of the pattern, so here’s some clarification:
In row 6 you will have 7 stitches. You will kfb in the first stitch, k1 in the second stitch, purl in the 3rd, 4th and 5th stitch. Then you’ll bind off one of those purls by passing the second to last stitch over the last stitch. Then you’ll k1 in the 6th stitch and kfb in the 7th stitch. That will give you eight stitches to start the next row.
