As part of my new year's resolutions to use what I have and keep simple, I decided to clean out my (new!) purse. After I was all done, I realized that I had nothing to hold all the random pens that were sitting on the bottom of my bag. I dug through my yarn stash to find some cute colors and - using what I already had! - whipped up a little pen case, which is also doubling as a checkbook holder.
I used Vanna's Choice in Linen and, uuuhh -- Pea Green, I believe! I used an H hook and didn't have a pattern - I just kind of made it up as I went.
All I did was chain with color A as wide as I wanted the case to be. After that, my pattern was just HDC, ch1, skip a stitch, and repeat. The next row had the HDCs in the ch1 space of the row before. I did that the entire way, two rows of each color, and then added a little scallop at the end. I just did 5 DCs in every other stitch of the last row. Sewed up the sides, poorly added a snap to the cover, and I was done!
