Phoenix Slowly Rising from the Ashes – Animal Pouches You can Make

Great for using scrap wool as you can mix colours if you wish.

Showing Nest and Pouch for Rescue Animals


8 ply wool or acrylic. Be sure there are no knobby or hard bits through the wool, keep it plain.

Size 4mm needles

Use only garter or stocking stitch or a mix of both, no patterns that little animal claws, paws or beaks can get caught in.

This pattern will knit squares in sizes Small – 24cms or Medium – 30 cms.

Sizing will depend on the tension used by the knitter. Yours may end up being a little smaller or larger but don’t worry, all can be well used and there will be fabric liners that will match up with your pouch.

Pouch Liners


Cast on 100 [130 medium] stitches.

Knit until the work measures 24cms for small; [30cms for large].

Fold knitted piece in half to form a square.

Stitch down the sides and bottom.
