Knitted in the round using Addi 20 cm 3.25 mm circular needles from Wool Stack. You will need approximately 10 grams, 40-50 m of 4 ply/fingering weight yarn. The blue that I used here is Dazzle HT (High Twist) from the Natural Dye Studio Mini Skein Club and the white is remnant yarn of a similar weight.
Step 1 – Leaving a long tail of about 1 metre, cast on 44 stitches, plus an additional stitch. 45 stitches.
Step 2 – Knit 44 stitches. Knit the 45th stitch together with the first stitch. 44 stitches in the round. From now on work in the round.
Step 3 – ::: snow-leopard-knitting-chart ::: Follow the knitting chart starting at row 2, stitch 1. The chart shows the stitches needed to complete one side of the pouch. For stitches 23-44 inclusive you will need to repeat the pattern i.e. you will need to do stitches 1-22 on the chart twice in each row.
Step 4 – Once you have finished all 33 rows of the chart cast off leaving a long tail of about 1 metre.
Step 5 – Finish the bottom seam as you wish, I used the long tail to crochet the two sides together.
Step 6 – Put in your lavender pouch. Here are some pictures of some pouches that I made earlier:
Step 7 – Finish the top seam as you wish, I used the long tail to crochet the two sides together.
