❤︎ Drawstrings pouch with beads & tassels

A little intro

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.

Important Notes

• 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.

The Drawstring

• With double pointed needles CO 2 stitches using the split in half G yarn, leave a long tail to attach the beads at the end.
• Make as long string as you like, finish with the sl st and add beads at the ends.
• Wave through the YO holes. We made only 1 YO so the hole may be small, they are more visible from the inside knit stitches then from front purl stitches when we made YO.

The Tassels

• If you need a little help making tassel please check the video below.
• For the stripes around my tassel, I split the yarn in half so the stripes will not be too bulky. I also split yarn to attach it to the bag and be able to pass the beads through.
