I'm currently making a felted bag. The pattern does not include the pattern for the pocket and I think without the pocket, my bag would look blah.The main color for my bag is burgundy and I'm planning on adding pink as the strip and in the pocket. Can someone send me an EASY pattern for the pocket?

Thank you.

I don't think I've ever seen a pattern for a pocket by itself. It's really just a square or rectangle with a pattern on it. Just find some pattern you like and make your own keeping in mind that it'll shrink when felted. :thumbsup:

Yes, you are correct, I need to knit a square. The thing is that I don't know how to knit with two colors.

Oh okay, well here's how I learned to do Fair Isle (aka stranded) knitting. You need IE to view it. It's for knitting in the round, but you can see how to hold the yarn with both hands.

It's here under stranded knitting. This one will show you how to knit flat with the yarn either in both hands or in one hand.
