Lavender Pockets & Laundry Bag PDF
These lovely sachet Lavender Pockets are simply strips of stockinette stitch with garter-stitch edges, folded to form envelopes into which you insert your own bags of lavender or other aromatics. Also included is an attractive way to keep yesterday’s clothing from cluttering up the floors: Stash it in a colorblock Laundry Bag that evokes the utilitarian charm of vintage linens. This two color bag, knit in stockinette stitch in gray and white Cotton DK, cinches with a top hem that enfolds a ribbon drawstring.
