What pattern is this?




I found this unfinished knitting in a second hand store and thought it was pretty. Does anyone know the stitch pattern?
Can you tell me how it is done?

I bought it for the needles that were also in the bag. Two sets of tortoiseshell needles and a set of the ordinary grey ones. Like I really need any more needles. Umm yeah, but I like them.

There is progress on tubey, the body has grown about 10 centimetres, maybe a little bit more. I haven't actually measures yet. I am into the eighth ball of yarn and have four more so should be fine.

I have an encounter with a plane coming up. Actually four of them.

You know, the big ones that take you way too far from the ground.

I have every intention of still knitting Mr Quantas, even without knitting needles.

Is it crazy that I am raiding Miss B's pencil case to see what I can knit with in there?

I never knew her lead pencils were 7mm.............

I love tortoiseshell needles, they are my favourite, as for the pattern it looks like feather and fan but I am not 100% sure.

I'm flying somewhere soon too and thought I should find some pencils to knit with... about 7mm hey? Wonder what I should start? Ooh maybe a flower. Wait on, it won't happen, flight at 6:15am, will stumble on plane still asleep...

a good pattern to look at as a reference to the one you have is the Carpet Bag in the book Hand Knit Holidays. It is extremely similar. Hope that helps!
