Happy new year everyone! I hope you all had a fun, yet safe holiday.
To start the new year off I have a little recipe for you.
What you need:
2 + colors of worsted weight acrylic yarn
8 mm hook (I used a Crystallite L)
Worked with two strands of yarn throughout. I use the center strand as well as the one from the outside of the skein. With red (or starting color) chain a chain that is long enough to go around your tablet or other device. Add one more chain then slip stitch to first chain to form ring.
I chained 30 for my case.
Worked in sc with a chain 1 at the start of each row, slip stitch to join rows
- Rows 1-2: red
- Row 3: one strand of red and one of orange
- Rows 4-5: orange
- Row 6: one strand of orange and one of yellow
- Rows 7-8: yellow
- Row 9: one strand of yellow and one of green
- Rows 10-11: green
- Row 12: one strand of green and one of aqua
- Rows 13-14: aqua
- Row 15: one of aqua and one of dark blue
- Rows 16-17: dark blue
- Row 18: one of dark blue and one of purple
- Rows 19-20: purple
Fold case in half and sc along bottom (purple). Tie off and weave in all ends.
Cut six 12-18 inch strands (one of each color). Thread 3 strands into front center top stitch and braid. Repeat on back.
This case was made for a 7 inch tablet, if you have a larger or smaller tablet add or subtract rows. This pattern would look great even with 2 colors.
I can't believe it has almost been a year since I started this site.
Thank you everyone!
