It is almost time again for Christmas in July at The Whole Nine Yarns. I've missed the last couple years because I've been out of town during the event. The challenge is always to come up with a quick gift knit. Since I've been doing quite a bit of double knitting lately (see the soap sack), some double knit sachets seemed like a good idea.
I came up with two different double-knit patterns. In the first, you start with Judy's Magic Cast-on, double knit the sachet, and bind off using purlwise grafting. The edges are rounded.
One final note, I stuffed one sachet with lavender and the other with cat nip. The cat nip version was very popular with the used knitter's cats!
