To make Lavender Bag (make 2):

Row 1: Knit to end

Row 5: K2, [YFWD, S1, K1, PSSO] repeat to end
Row 6: Purl to end
Row 7: Knit to end increasing 1 stitch at both ends of row.
Continue working stocking stitch without shaping until work measures 11cm from start. Cast Off.

To make up:

Sew up seams. Using a 2mm crochet hook form a chain of 40 loops and thread through holes in bag. Once in place Rejoin yarn and form 3 x treble crochet stitches onto either end of each drawstring. Secure ends. Pack with lavender and tie securely. If your knitting is very loose or the lavender seeds particularly small it is worth considering sewing the seeds in a muslin pouch or tying then into an old clean pop sock to prevent seeds from escaping from the bag.
