I knit up this beautiful sachet to hold potpourri or soap for my Mother for mother’s day. I used the Lace Sachet pattern by Eunny Jang, downloadable for free on Ravelry.
I had some left over fingering weight Pizazz yarn from NH Knitting Mama. This is a very light weight merino wool. It’s so soft and just lovely to use. I used single point needles instead of DPN’s. I worked row 1 in lace and purled row 2. I worked this pattern for about 3 and a half inches, then switched to straight YO and knit to have a different lace on the top section. I knit this for 3 inches then sewed up the seams. This picture was taken before blocking. It’s amazing what blocking does.
While it was blocking, I worked on the mesh insert. I purchased some toule, cut it to size and sewed up the sides. I wanted the top to have a more finished look, so I added ribbon.
Once the knit bag had been blocked, it was time to assemble it!
This yarn blocks out so nicely. I steam blocked this. As soon as I block it, all the stitches come right out and makes it look amazing. I added the ribbon to the top between the two lace patterns.
And inserted the liner.
This was a great little project with big reward and my Mom loved it.
