I wanted to try out some of the slipped stitch patterns I was researching for my Color Knitting Class at OLLI, so I pulled a couple of balls of leftover worsted weight wool in interesting colors, grabbed the tiny little bit of red that might prove useful somehow, and cast on. This is the result. This is knit in one long piece which is then folded in half, bound off with an I-Cord bind off on the edges to join the sides, and then used again for the red corded finish at the top of the I-Pad Cozy.
There are two different slip stitch patterns used here. One of the beauties of slip stitch patterns is that you only knit with one color at a time. It gives a very interesting fabric structure....sort of thick and nubbly and cushy...the perfect thing to protect your I-Pad. I also sewed in a linen lining, which could easily include a small inside pocket. And, as you can see in this picture, it is possible to roll one end of the cozy to prop up your screen at a nice angle for reading. The I-Cord bind off makes a perfect rolled ridge to hold the edge. This works even though this table is very smooth and the I-Pad itself is slippery. I will be providing the pattern shortly.
If you would like to stay with us this is the room we rent via Airbnb. I would love to see you and give you a tour of the studio, some quality time at the knitting table, some scones and warm drinks.
