    Knit first 22 stitches and place remaining stitches on a stitch holder.

    Complete 15 more rows on the first 22 stitches in stockinette stitch (continue stripe pattern).

    Once complete, break yarn and thread through live stitches.

    Draw live stitches together tightly and secure yarn end.

     

    Join yarn to next 24 stitches from stitch holder and work 28 rows in stockinette stitch (continue stripe pattern).

    **You can certainly adjust the number of rows worked here depending on the “size” of your victim.  In my personal experience though – men are happier if you think they need a bigger size than they really do as opposed to you erring on the small side.**

    Once complete, break yarn and thread through live stitches.

    Draw live stitches together tightly and secure yarn end.

     

    Join yarn to next 22 stitches from stitch holder and work 16 rows in stockinette stitch (continue stripe pattern).

    Once complete, break yarn and thread through live stitches.

    Draw live stitches together tightly and secure yarn end. 

     

    Finishing: 

    Thread a tapestry needle with one of the colors and sew up the long seam.

    Then sew up the shorter seams making one long pouch and one smaller pouch. 

    Make a twisted cord containing both of the colors used for the stripes,

    thread through the eyelets and tie in a bow.

     

    Cord: 

    Cut 2 pieces of yarn (one color for each stripe color) about 2 arm spans long

    Tie lose ends together at each side.

    Hold one end of the yarn stationary (can have someone hold or

    put it around the leg of a chair) and twist the yarn continuously

    until it is twisted enough to twist back onto itself.

    Hint – My husband rigged up his drill with a cup hook where the drill bit should go.  I hold one end stationary and my husband hooks the other end on the cup hook and runs the drill to twist the yarn.  This is a BIG time saver!

    Once the yarn doubles back on itself, smooth it out and tie a knot on both ends leaving about 1 inch on the end below the knot.

    Cut off the very ends on each side so that the yarn below the knot is not twisted

    Package up for a great gag gift!!
