Alex's Pencil Cover

Skills Needed: Cast On, Knit, and Cast Off.

Materials:

Size 10.5 knitting needles, small amount of worsted-weight yarn, and a sewing needle for yarn.

Directions:

Cast on 26 stitches.

Knit every row for 8 rows. (This will make 4 ridges in the garter stitch.)

Cast off, leaving a tail of yarn about 20 inches long.

Finishing:

Thread the sewing needle with the tail of yarn and sew the long sides of the rectangle you made together. Hide the remaining end of yarn by running it under a few stitches so it will not unravel. Cut the end.

Slide a pencil inside the the knitted tube you made.
