It was one of those things that just happen, without much thought or planning. An empty can, some yarn and a couple of hours of free time.
The yarn is mystery yarn. I think it has been in my mum’s house for the last 15 years. I am guessing it is sports weight or a heavy fingering, but I can not confirm that.
I used less than half a partial skein.
Do you want to make one?
You will need:
A set of 2.5mm DPNs or circs
Some yarn (sport or fingering)
My gauge was 6 stitches/inch.
Cast on 60 stitches. Join in the round, making sure it doesn’t twist.
Round 1: Knit
Round 2: Purl
Round 3: Knit
Round 4: Purl
Round 5 and 6: Knit
Round 7 and 8: *Knit 1, Purl 1*
Round 9 and 10: Knit
Round 11 and 12: *Purl 1, Knit 1*
Repeat rounds 5-12 until the knitting is almost the same length as your can.
Repeat rounds 1 to 4 once. Bind off and weave in all ends.
Now your can is nice and cozy and can keep your pens, pencils and scissors all in the same place.
