3.5 mm x 80 cm circular needle ( I am doing Magic Loop technique for not to have trouble in sewing both seam, also, it’s easy and quick!)
Merino Magic Yarn (from Yarnsonlineshop.Com) or you can use any 4 ply/sport yarn that will fit the gauge.
Tapestry Needle for Kitchener Stitch
crochet hook of 3.00 mm
thread, button and sewing needle
Gauge: This is 1 x 1 Rib Gauge.. 16 sts and 35 rows to 4 x 4 inch
Skill Level: EASY
Cast On 40 sts and divide them fairly onto two needle of circular. ( 20 sts and 20 sts since we are going to knit in the round)
Start the row with k1, p1, k1, p1 until the end of row on both needles ( keep doing this 1 x 1 rib pattern until the desired length or at least 2 cm from beginning of rows) and end on second needle then we will move forward to make cable pattern.
First needle: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K8 , K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1,
Second needle: *k1,p1* — rep * to * til end…
next row on first needle:
K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, C8F, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1
**C8F ( move 4 sts onto cable needle and put on front, continue to knit 4 sts on needle and knit the 4 sts on cable needle)
K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1.. till end
On first needle again:
(K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K8, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1)
**On every rows of first needle, repeat this two rows:
ROW 1/Cable row: K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, C8F, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1
ROW 2-6: (K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1, K8, K1, P1, K1, P1, K1, P1) x 5 rows before next cable row
**On every rows of second needle, keep doing 1 x 1 Rib without Cable.
Until you get the desired length, close the bottom with kitchener stitch that you can find in this link for 1 x 1 rib (thanks to the author of this technique)
Final step (to make the lid):
With using crochet hook, pick up a stitch on first sts from any side at the back (no-cable side) that you feel comfortable to start your lid at the top of body. Do SC until the end of row. Then continue the next row with DC for at least 3-4 rows before making decrease. After done, cut the yarn. Sew button on the cable side to which will fit your lid. Tada! Done!
