This pocket-sized knit uses double-knitting and seed stitch to create a quiet fidget toy. Each toy contains one glass marble that can slide through a channel surrounding a textured area to fidget with and calm nerves. Practice working a tubular cast-on and bind-off in this small-scale project. Choose your favorite 
colors and create a new sensory toy. Directions are provided for DK, worsted, and bulky weight yarns.
