Have a Yarn

Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia


March 2011 - Felted Laptop Cover

MATERIALS: 6 mm needles, Galway yarn-one skein of navy, red and light blue (worsted weight). I only used about two skeins.

PATTERN: Cast on 165 stitches and knit 86 rows in garter stitch or 43 ridges. Cast off, sew the two sides together. Wash in hot water with a cold rinse to felt. This cover fit a 12” x 9” laptop. If you have a larger laptop add a few more stitches and an extra garter ridge or two and watch closely while felting.

This would also work well with a variety of leftover colors.
