Knitting Needle Roll

by Linda

Basically, it's a knitted rectangle with ties on it. From the wrong side, you push your knitting needles through to the right side, then back to the wrong side (like using a safety pin). You can also store cable needles and circular needles, too. When done, start at one short end and roll it up like a jelly roll. There's an i-cord tie attached to the outside so you can tie it shut. Tada!

Gosh, after that description, you won't need to read the pattern. :)

  1. With red (main colour), loosely cast on 55 stitches.
  2. Work 8 rows garter stitch (4 ridges on each side).
  3. Work first 5 stitches in red garter stitch, join dark purple, knit plain for 45 stitches, join another ball of red and work last 5 stitches in garter stitch. Turn.
    Note: Your first and last 5 stitches will always be worked in garter stitch with red yarn. The middle 45 stitches will be worked in stocking stitch, changing colours every few rows.

  4. Change colours on the 45 stitches as follows:
  5. Work 8 garter stitch rows, all the way across, with red. Cast off.
  6. Knit a 3 stitch i-cord with red. Make it a few inches longer than the length of your roll.
  7. Attach the middle of the i-cord along one short edge of the roll, halfway across its width, right where the red garter stitches change to purple stocking stitch.
