Then to close it you fold it in half which stops all the hooks and needles falling out.
I designed it to then fold in uneven thirds so it's flat meaning that I can store my circular needles in here too.
It makes a niftly little carry case that is a great size for travelling with. Perfect to tuck away in my luggage when I head off to the UK. And since I was making a trip to Melbourne to visit some friends I decided to go a bit earlier and visit Morris & Sons and add two 2.75mm circulars and a 3mm hook to my collection. Oh yeah, found some nice metal necklace clasps and decided to add one to this to hold it closed. Different and interesting and a little bit fancy. I'm very happy with this.
