Knit wallet free pattern

After I got a most disdainful, scrunched up sneer from my daughter regarding the crochet purse I made for her (previous blog), I knit this wallet.  She snatched it up and put her blush in it, taking it to bed with her.  Maybe it’s because she requested pink and this one is truly pink.

1.  Cast on an odd number of stitches (31 in this case, on 3.75 mm needles)

2.  Horizontal Bat Stitch (from “The New Knitting Dictionary” by Rhoda Ochser Goldberg, 1984)
      First row: *K1, sl 1* to last stitch, K last stitch
      Second row:  K
      Third row:  K2, *sl 1, K1* to last 3 stitches, sl 1, K2
Fourth row: K
Repeat these 4 rows for the length of the wallet (this one one 5.5 inches long. 4 inches folded in half for the wallet part, 1.5 inches for the flap).

3.  Make it as long as you like, I used up the last of the dusty rose yarn I had and then switched to the light pink to make the flap.

4.  Single crochet the sides together and make a border around the flap too.  At the middle of the flap ch-4 to make a buttonhole before resuming the border along the flap.

5.  Using the flap as a guide, sew a button to the front of the wallet.
