Ziplet - a notions pouch knitting pattern

This wristlet is just enough for a wallet, keys, and a lip balm. Knit it as a notions pouch, or add an optional liner, hardware, and strap for the perfect bag for running errands.

The Ziplet pattern is ideal for scrap busting or using up minis, and familiarizes you with all the skills needed to go on to knit Letters From the Open Road. Techniques including the stitch pattern, seaming with mattress stitch, creating the welts, blocking to measurements, installing the zipper, and working a tubular bind-off are explained in detail in this cute and funky knitting pattern. The sides are worked using fingering held double, and the welts and strap are worked with fingering held single.

This pattern includes photo illustrations and with a supporting YouTube tutorial for the zipper installation.


Ziplet is knit flat from side to side. Stitches are picked up to create the welts, and the zipper is sewn in by hand. Sides are sewn at the bottom, and stitches are picked up and worked together for the sides, which are closed with a sewn tubular bind-off.

A three-needle bind-off can be used instead of the sewn tubular bind-off.
