With A, cast on 48 sts.
Rows 1-5:
Beginning with a purl row, work in St st (k on RS, p on WS).
Rows 6-9: Change to B, and continue in St st as established.
Rows 10-16: Change to C, and continue in St st.
Rows 17-23:
With C work in Garter st (k every row).
Rows 24-27: Change to B and continue in Garter st.

Fold Caddy along Row 17, with RS of St st front section facing. Seam sides of front to back. Divide width of Caddy into 8 equal sections. Working through both thicknesses, sew vertically along each section to form pockets.

With WS of Caddy facing, thread second tie through back of Caddy, about 3 in. (7.5 cm) inside left edge, (near top of 'A' section). Knot as for first tie. Weave in ends.

Finished product curled on edges more than expected, but otherwise a cute item I created for my niece's 2nd birthday. Hoping she enjoys carrying around her crayons in it.
