Dots and stripes tester

I was smitten with this Traveler’s Pocket  designed by Nancy Bush on the cover of Piecework magazine  issue July/August 2004.

My Traveler's Pocket

I made mine out of denim yarn which, unfortunately, is no longer available.  You can tell it’s stretched out and well used.

I wanted something a bit bigger so I reshaped the pattern and added a gusset in the bottom.  It’s also knit in the round however there is no seam to sew on the bottom. There is a seam at the top hem and optional lining.  Finished size is 8 inches by 10 inches.

I used leftover cotton yarn but this would look great in fewer colors.  Like blues and greens, reds and oranges or purples or even self-striping yarn and a solid.  This would be a great project to try stranded knitting.

I have one test knitter but would like at least one more to make sure I have all the bugs worked out.  Would you like to test knit this pattern for me?
