Who would have thought that we all would be carrying around plastic gadgets with flashing images in our pockets, purses, totebags and knitting bags? Well, we all are, aren't we?
How many times have you wished you had a case for your phone, tablet, or e-reader - a case that would show your style, shout out that you are a knitter and a crafter, and shout out your favorite colors? Wait no more. The Knit It Felt It Tech Cozy will protect your important tool from splashes (you did know that wool sheds water, right?) and help save it from clumsy drops with nice, thick, felted wool. And on top of all that, they're really cute and really quick to knit.
The Knit It Felt It Tech Cozy pattern includes two versions: a simple version in solid colors or random stripes, and a more challenging (but not too difficult) Fair Isle version. You'll need a pretty button for a closure which will give you a chance to check out that button stash you have been hoarding.
The complete instructions include short knitting articles about Choosing Colors and Fair Isle knitting, and three pages of extra charts for you to customize your cozy.
I used a worsted weight wool yarn for my bags. You MUST USE A WOOL OR WOOL BLEND YARN that is at least 85% wool for the bag to felt. Do not use a superwash yarn as it has been treated NOT TO FELT.
