Notes

I wanted to make Anthony a small gift, as he’s graduating soon and this is something he’ll make use of when he goes on to do a Masters in Modern History.

This pencil case is knit in the round. The bottom was grafted closed. The top two halves were knitted as two very wide dutch heels.

I think my left hand is the dominant hand in colour knitting, so if I were to do this again, I would do the green in my left hand as I think the pattern would come out better.

The pattern is inspired by Sanquhar Gloves.

One side says “Anthony”. The other side says “WAMHBAS”, which is our own little secret code and I intend to keep it that way!
