❤︎ Drawstrings pouch with beads & tassels

drawstring pouch - free knitting pattern
drawstring pouch - free knitting pattern

This knitted pouch gives you the freedom to use whatever yarn and beads you want. I used cotton yarn because it is more durable. Use half-size smaller needles than your yarn calls for, for more dense stitches. Enjoy!

• Adding Beads
If you going to use the crochet hook method to add beads you will need small enough hook that will go through the bead and your yarn.
• Making change from purl to knit round
Slip stitch purlwise with yarn in front in the 1st stitch of knit round after purl round to make the purl round more even.
