These small sacks were knit on a Standard Gauge Studio/Singer Mod 360 punchcard knitting machine.

Tuck stitch, using one of the standard punchcards. (#3 or 7).The yarn is a smooth cotton that knitted at Tension dial 7.
40 stitches wide over needles 20-0-20.
Rows….as many as you want for the depth of the bag. (60 or so)

If, you wish to make the holes for the cord, transfer every other stitch onto its neighbour, but keep the empty needle in working position. Knit a few more rows and cast off.

Sew up seams in your preferred method. I use crochet chain stitch.

The Bluish/green coloured sacks were knit using the SAME punchcard. Both sides are quite nice.

I find these items to be very useful when travelling.

Vacation Yarn scarf

I purchased this yarn while on vacation last fall. It is Plymouth Kudo yarn. Mostly cotton and rayon with a bit of silk.
The coloring is much like the long colour spaced Noro yarns.
Nice to work with, but not warm enough to wear for my climate.
It would be nice used as a collar on a garment. Now to find the appropriate yarn for a garment that would compliment the Kudo.
My challenges keep multiplying.
