Fabes

Pattern incomplete - awaiting some cast on numbers etc...

I made this piece to test out using beads when knitting and also my pattern making up skills - only simple rectangles but I'm amazed at what can be done with them e.g. Ash Grape.



You will need:

50g DK (I used Rowan Cashsoft DK)
Pair of 3.75mm needles
Tapestry Needle for sewing up
Piece of card for game pouch

DS Case Body
  • Cast on **
  • (K1, P1) moss stitch to end for 3 rows
  • K1, P1, K1, K to last 3 stitches K1, P1, K1
  • K1, P1, K1, P to last 3 stitches K1, P1, K1
  • Repeat last two rows (pattern rows) until work measures 14cm ending on a Purl row
  • K1, P1, K1, K **, YF, K2TOG, K **, YF, K2TOG, K to last 3 stitches K1, P1, K1
  • Continue in pattern rows until work measures 16cm
  • (K1, P1) moss stitch to end for 3 rows
  • Cast off
DS Game Pouch
  • Cast on **
  • (K1, P1) moss stitch to end for 3 rows
  • Continue in stocking stitch until work measures 12cm
  • (K1, P1) moss stitch to end for 3 rows
  • Cast off
To make up:

  • Fold case over to form an envelope (with buttonholes on the flap of the envelope) and sew up inner side seams.
  • Sew two buttons at points below corresponding button holes.
  • Fold over the moss stitch ends of the game pouch with 2cms of stocking stitch piece too
  • Sew up these side seams and also at half and quarter ways along to make little pockets for the DS games
  • Stiffen with cardboard.


Please feel free to make this pattern (and let me know if you spot errors so that I may update this page), I would love to see yours so send me a pic. The pattern is not for reproduction without my consent but you may make these for sale for charitable purposes.
