BOW POUCH – FREE PDF PATTERN
Download on Ravelry
(in English & French)
A dainty little pattern for your leftovers. Making this is so quick and simple, that I don’t think even a beginner knitter could go wrong. I’ve included life-size schematics, so you can get away with only printing the second page. Then grab your yarn & needles & a tapestry needle and head to the park. Though these photos are rather autumnal, this is actually the first pattern for my summer collection. More on that later!
As I mentioned before, there are 3 different closures you can choose from: A fold-over & sew closure, a button flap closure, and a loop closure. The fold-over closure is the easiest, and doesn’t even require a button. The loop closure is also very simple, and I’ve included a tutorial on how to crochet the loop, so don’t fear the hook! :)
The pattern already has lots of Ravelry , and has been downloaded over 100 times. One knitter has even finished hers, out of Handmaiden sock yarn no less. See, it’s so pretty!
Here’s what I might put in mine:
- Bobby pins
- Stitch markers
- Eraser & pencil lead
- A skipping stone
- A lump of sugar, in case I meet a horse
- A piece of chalk for spontaneous graffitti
- IChing coins
- & all manner of other small thinglings that are always getting lost.
What will you keep in yours? Comment ‘cos I’m curious. :)
If you don’t fancy wearing it on your wrist, you can make one just to keep in your handbag / backpack / knitting bag, or even cooler, if your bag has a detachable strap, you can slide your pouch onto it!
Also, this is my favourite dress. I can’t tell you how delighted I was when I got it home & found out that it had POCKETS!
Hellooo wonky garter stitch!
I can’t wait to see everyone’s lovely sock yarn creations. Hope you enjoy! :)
Many thanks to Nylwenn for the amazing work she did on the French translation! I have a feeling that if you knit La Bow Pouch in French, it will look more graceful, but I can’t be sure. :) Cliquez ici pour télécharger “La Bow Pouch”.
