Storage Pouch

This knitted storage pouch is ideal for keeping cloths or cotton wool tidied away, yet still easily to hand. The jersey yarn comes in many different colours, so you could make two or three pouches to use around the house.

Use the bodkin and knitting yarn to draw together the cast-on edge and join the side seam to make a bowl shape. Make a crochet chain approximately 4in (10cm) in length and attach to top of seam as hanging loop.



Because this yarn is made from off -cuts from the textile industry, the stretch can vary depending on the fabric that was used to make it. This will affect the gauge (tension), but don’t worry too much about it—just knit to your natural gauge (tension).
