GAUGE:
12 sts + 20 rnds = 4 inches [10 cm] in Garter st (knit 1 rnd, purl 1 rnd) with A. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles. Making a Gauge Swatch
Exact gauges is not imporant to this project.


INSTRUCTIONS



CASE
With A, cast on 24 sts.

Divide sts evenly between 3 needles and join, being careful not to twist.

Work in Garter st until piece measures 7 inches [18 cm].

Bind off.

Weave in ends.



FRINGE

Cut several 5 inches [12.5 cm] strands of B.

Use 1 strand for each fringe.

Fold strand in half, insert crochet hook through front and back of Case at bottom edge and draw loop through.

Draw ends of fringe through loop and tighten.

Work evenly across bottom edge of Case to close.



TOP TRIM

Fold top edge of Case over 1" [2.5 cm].

With B, stitch in place.



CORD

Cut 2 strands of B and 1 strand of A approximately 1.5 times the desired finished length of Cord.

Tie knot in top, leaving yarn above knot for fringe.

Braid to desired length, tie another knot, and trim fringe below knot to match fringe length at beginning of Cord.

Pull Cord through sides of Case and double-knot over existing knot to keep Cord from pulling back through Case.
