Raven Tarot Bag

The Raven Tarot Bag is knit in one piece, no seams. It is started using the Eastern cast on ( optional ), then knit in the round until the cabled flap which is knit flat.

It's about 5 by 6 inches, fits my larger cards while wrapped in their cloth nicely.
I used size 6 US dpns ( set of five ), I've read that this cast on is easier with circular needles, I did not find it to be the case. I'm sure other toe-up cast-on's would work as well, I just find this one suites me. You could also seam the the bottom.

Cable needle
Gauge 4 ½ stitches by 7 rows per one inch
57 yards of worsted weight yarn

3 buttons, 2 smaller about ½ inch, 1 larger about 1 inch
Stitches that are used
I made this bag some time ago, I could not tell you how many photos were taken before we got some we could use ;)
