Case Study - an intro to intarsia pouch knitting pattern

Case Study is a sharp little notions case, with just enough intarsia to be interesting. It features easy construction and an optional zipped lining.

Unlined, the Case Study pouch is the right size for a sleeve for your tablet or composition book. Lined with sturdy cotton and zipped up, it’s a notions case that perfectly matches your sweater. This pattern introduces techniques like tubular cast-on, intarsia knitting, and seaming.


Case Study is worked flat in two pieces from the ribbing down and then seamed. An optional zipper and lining can be added to transform it from a sleeve to a zipped case.


The finished case is 11.25 inches x 9.5 inches / 28 cm x 23.5 cm
