This is a digital file
A fun way to protect your electronic gadget! For the intermediate knitter, these make wonderful gifts and can be done in any colors and a variety of feltable yarns. They fit Kindles, Nooks, smaller format iPads, and other small notebooks and tablets.
Yarn: Feltable worsted-weight yarn such as Cascade 220 (not superwash), Brown Sheep Nature Spun, Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride, Noro Kureyon, Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, or Wisdom Poems. Yarn is held double throughout, and you will need as many colors as you choose, from 2-14. The project takes about 350-400 yards altogether.
Needles: 1 US size 13 (9 mm) 40” circular
1 each US size 11 (8 mm) and size 13 (9 mm) 16” circulars
1 US size 6-8 (4-5) mm 24” circular (used for picking up stitches to finish the edges)
Finished size: Before felting, about 9” wide x 10½” tall (not counting top flap).
After felting, the size is somewhat up to you, as the felting process can be stopped when you achieve the size to fit your gadget, usually between 7” x 8” and 6” x 7” for a Kindle Fire. It will not likely felt down much smaller than this.
