GAUGE:

15 sts + 18 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side) before felting.
EXACT GAUGE IS NOT ESSENTIAL FOR THIS PROJECT.
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

STITCH EXPLANATION:

EMBROIDERY STITCH EXPLANATIONS
Blanket Stitch
Secure yarn on back of work. Working from left to right, carry needle and yarn around from back to front, allow yarn to wrap loosely over edge of work. *Insert needle from front to back approx. 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) from previous stitch and from edge of work, catching yarn wrap with needle to form a "corner". Gently tighten stitch; repeat from * along edge.
Embroidered Chain Stitch
Bring needle from back through to front, hold thread toward you with left thumb, *bring needle back down through same hole, bringing tip to front a short space forward. Pull thread through loop. Repeat from * for chain stitch.

PURSE
With A, cast on 53 stitches. Work 50 rows in Stockinette stitch (knit on right side, purl on wrong side). Bind off.
Loop
Join A with slip stitch in center of last row. Chain 10, slip stitch in base of chain to form loop. Fasten off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.
Felting
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 pull to about 10 x 6 in. (25.5 x 15 cm).
Fold piece to about 4 x 6 in. (10 x 15 cm), with a 2 in. (5 cm) flap.
With B, and following photograph for placement, embroider chain stitch spirals. With B, join side seams using Blanket stitch. With B, work Blanket stitch around flap. Sew button opposite loop.

Reviewed by blkimes on 2012-01-06 *****
I wish i could show u a pic. I only had size 8 needles and I used the same amt of stitches the directiins call for, so mine is probably smaller than the original- but I love it! This is my first felting project. I am a very beginner knitter. I kind of made my own button loop bc I didnt understand the directions- and it is just fine. I did not put my pouch in the dryer. It may not be perfectly felted- but it is not over felted either. I feel it is just right. The shape did not warp and it feels very durable. Now I need to go buy some embroidery thread and learn how to blanket stitch so I can sew this baby up! I LOVE it! Although, The felting yarn did stick a lot to my bamboo needles. That wasnt fun- but its so cute I will probably make more. :)
