Short story short, my dear Rusty (partner-in-crime, woodworker extraordinaire) needed a little sleeve for his new Auvi-Q allergy medicine, to keep them together in his pocket/bag.
So I made one.
This isn’t so much a ‘pattern’ as the basic recipe that I used, in case anyone else wasn’t sure where to start.
Auvi-Q Sleeve (Holds 2 Auto-injectors)
- 4.0 mm circular needles (I used a 16 inch cable, but this is so small that really any will work)
- worsted weight yarn (I used an acrylic Caron Big Cake, but I imagine any fiber type would work)
- tapestry/yarn needle (for kitchener and weaving in ends)
- Cast on 26 stitches using a stretchy method like the long tail cast on.
- Join in the round by knitting first and last stitches together (25 stitches)
- Knit 1, purl 1 for about an inch (3cm). You can use any ribbing you like, but for this small of an object I like the look of the 1×1 rib. (25 stitches)
- Knit all stitches around to make about 2.5 inches (5cm) of stockinette. (25)
- Divide stitches evenly between the needles, and kitchener stitch the bottom closed.
Here is the result:
