Treasure Pouch Knitting Pattern

My latest pattern, a sweet little knitted pouch, is now available!  Click the Buy Now button below for immediate download, download it from Ravelry or purchase it in my Etsy shop.

I hope you enjoy knitting up these little treasure pouches as much as I have.  Nathan’s having so much fun with his, and now I’m starting to think I’d like one to carry as a little purse for ducking in the farm stand or taking a quick shopping trip when I don’t want to carry around a big diaper bag.  Nathan’s been collecting acorns and walnuts in his treasure pouch, and he also likes stuffing his play silks inside and pulling them back out again.

The pattern is written for both Sport and DK gauges with U.S. size 4 and size 6 DPNs respectively, giving you options for two different sized pouches.  The Sport pouch is 6 ¼” wide by 7 ½” high, and the DK pouch is 7 ¼” wide by 8 ¾” high (excluding handle) when empty.

Sturdy but soft cotton was my fiber of choice for its strength and lack of stretchiness.  The pattern takes almost the entire skein of DK yarn (123 yards)—I used Knit Picks CotLin in Cashew, and less than one skein of Sport yarn (164 yds)—I used Knit Picks Simply Cotton Sport in Green Tea Heather.

The short icord handle and useful twisted cord drawstring make this little but roomy pouch functional. Picot edging and heart or Xs and Ox motif add whimsy and charm—and extra interest while knitting.  Both motifs work at both gauges.

It’s a fast and easy knit. Please enjoy!
