My Mom knits and this year I got the idea of making her a pouch for her needles. Since I don’t knit and therefore do not have any knitting needles in my house, I researched the size online and found a bunch of tutorials for knitting needle rolls. I settled on the one linked below on Multicrafty. I did have to modify it slightly due to the fact the solid colour broadcloth was purchased out of the remnant bin. I brought it home and measured it out. I turned out to be exactly the 17" width I needed, but the length (actually would be the width of the fabric- I guess) wasn’t quite enough so I adjusted a smidge from each of the pockets and it worked out perfectly (I hope, I haven’t seen it with knitting needles in it yet though). I added white ribbon for tying because I couldn’t find another ribbon in my stash that would coordinate well and I forgot to look at the fabric store. I now have to convince my husband I need MORE ribbon on hand! I also added a strip of sew in interfacing inside the middle pocket. I felt that the broadcloth had a slight bit of stretch and I thought it would make it a little more sturdy over time.
I think she likes it, I frantically took pics just before shoving it into her stocking on Boxing Day because I realized I hadn’t taken any pictures yet, even though it was completed with plenty of time to spare!
