A-Tishoo! A-Tishoo! Tissue Pocket Knitting Kit
Approximate size – made to fit one of these small pocket size tissues packs.
This pattern is worked in Fisherman’s rib.
You will need: -
6mm knitting needles
Chunky yarn in main colour – about 12 gm
Small amount of Chunky for the contrast - about 8 gm
Large blunt needle to sew up
Button to fasten
- If you don’t have any chunky - use 2 strands of DK (which is equal to chunky weight) worked together.
Method: With 6mm knitting needles and main colour, cast on 26 stitches.
Row 1: knit 1, purl 1 – repeat to end of row.
Repeat row 1: 3 more times.
Row 5: knit 1, purl 1 for 6 stitches, slip 1 stitch, knit 2 stitches together, pick up the slipped stitch and bring it over your 2 stitches knitted together and off the needle, then purl 1, knit 1 to end of row.
Row 6: knit 1, purl 1 for 18 stitches, yarn is at the front of the needle – wrap the yarn around the needle (anti-clockwise) once – then knit 1, purl 1 to end of row.
Row 7: knit 1, purl 1 – repeat to end of row. Work into the back of the loose loops carefully so that you don’t lose them – and when you get to the end of the row check that you have 26 stitches.
Row 8: knit 1, purl 1 – repeat to end of row.
Row 9: knit 1, purl 1 – repeat to end of row.
Row 10: knit 1, purl 1 – repeat to end of row.
Change to the pattern
Each time you work the knit stitch – put the point of the needle into the body of the stitch just UNDER the one on the needle – and work a knit stitch in the normal way – dropping both loops off the needle to complete the stitch.
This pattern consists of 2 rows in the main colour and 2 rows in the contrast colour – do not break the yarn in between the colour changes – just bring it up to the next start.
Row 1: knit one in stitch below, purl 1 as normal – repeat to end of row.
Row 2: knit 1 below, purl 1 – repeat to end of row. Do not break yarn
Row 3: Change colour – using the contrast colour - knit 1 below, purl 1 – repeat to end of row.
Row 4: using the contrast colour knit 1 below, purl 1 – repeat to end of row. Do not break yarn.
Repeat these 4 pattern rows until you have worked about 6” from the cast on edge.
Take a step further -
- Cast on more stitches (keep an even number for the pattern to work) – line with fabric to make a phone / I Pad / kindle holder.
- Work more pattern sets to make longer – line with fabric to make a matching glasses case.
- Add a long ‘I’ cord / ribbon / platted yarn to make a shoulder purse.
- Work a 4 rows to each pattern for thicker stripes.
- Great little fund raiser for school / church fates.
- Go as wild as you like with colours.
