Felted Pencil Case

Lion Brand® Lion® Wool


15 sts + 19 rows = 4 in. [10cm] in Stockinette st (k on RS, p on WS) before felting When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


Results may vary based on water temperature, length of the cycle, and agitation provided in the washing machine. Cast on more sts for a wider bag and knit fewer rows for a shorter one.

Cast on 88 sts. Work even in St st for 6 in. [15.25 cm], ending on a RS row. Bind off firmly until 3 sts remain (including st on right-hand needle), k2 – 3 sts.

Work knitted cord as follows: *Slip 3 sts back onto left needle, k3; repeat from * until cord measures 6 in. [15.25 cm]. Bind off.

Sew end of cord to base of cord to form loop. Fold piece in half to form a pouch 6 in. [15.25 cm] x 11¾ in. [30 cm]. Sew side seams. Weave in ends.

Wash by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. To felt additionally, dry by machine on a regular setting until almost dry. Remove from dryer and stretch to shape. For more about felting, click here.

If desired, sew hook and loop tape inside top opening edges for closure.

Felted Pencil Case Reviewed by christopher w graul on 2011-08-26 *****
This was fun, fast, and I used some really wild colors (it's for a teen girl). The pattern is so simple! (but my felting needs work, I'm really not good at it.)
