This pattern is for a clutch style envelope bag that is also the perfect size for holding a kindle. The bag is knit seamlessly. The bag opens flat, so that you can sew in elastic to hold your e-reader in and read without taking it out of the bag. You could also sew down the sides of the bag to the bottom flap if you prefer to use it as a purse. The bag is knit with the yarn held double. The easiest way to do this is to wind your skein into a yarn cake and pull from both the center and the outside of the yarn cake.
