Wrister Wallet

Wrister Wallet

A friend of mine recently asked for a pattern similar to this, I remembered that I had created one years ago, so I went digging for it. I hope you can find it useful.

There are those days when one wishes one can just go out without a wallet or a purse. Actually, I am not a purse person at all. I hate them, they are bothersome to have around and then if you go to a restaurant you have to watch where you put it or find a place to put it. The wrister wallet comes very handy in those occassions. I also see it being useful as my children grow up, a great way for them to carry a little cash with them. 

Knitting loom: All-n-One loom suggested or 22 pegs small gauge loom.

Yarn: Bits of worsted weight yarn.

Notions: knitting tool, tapestry needle, sewing needle and thread in color of choice.

Other: 3 small buttons for closure

Size: The sample fits a wrist that is approximately 5.5 inches in circumference. The little pocket is about 1.5 inches in width.

Gauge: 9sts x 16 rows= 2 inches in stockinette

Abbreviations

k=knit stitch, not ewrap. Ewrap will make the item too big

p=purl stitch

k2tog=knit two stitches together. Move the loop from the peg on the right to the peg on the left, this leaves an empty peg and one peg with 2 loops, treat the 2 loops as one loop when knitting the row.

yo=yarn over. ewrap the empty peg.

BO=Bind off. This pattern uses the basic bind off.

Pattern notes: worked as a flat panel. The picture differs slightly from the pattern below. After I finished knitting it, I realized that I should have purled the row where the little pocket ended so that it would sit more flat, my picture doesn’t have that purl row (it is row 17 of the pattern).
