About this project
i have a new laptop, and i love to knit!
i sat with a bag of wool thinking 'i need to get rid of this somehow! i have too much!'.
the light bulb appeared, and so out the needles came, and knitting began!
Its my first public project, so be nice and enjoy!
You Will Need
- Reasonably Priced
- Step 1
Firstly, get your hands on some thick, chunky wool - approx 2 balls of wool will be fine, if not - make sure you can get your hands on another, as there will be nothing worse than running out just before you finish!
Also you will need knitting needles! I used 20mm & 10mm to achieve the desired look.
- Step 2
Cast on your stitches...
Keep your laptop besides your knitting, I found that measuring with your actual wool as you knit is effective way to to keep track on size.
Stretch out your casted on stitches making sure there are enough - you don't want it to be too snug or too big!
The rows i knitted went as follows:
Knit a row, Purl a row, Knit a row, Purl a row, etc...
- Step 3
Once you have knitted to the size of your laptop, sit the laptop in side the knitting - PRESENTATION side on the inner and INSIDE on the outer.
Sew with excess wool up the sides with a wool sewing needle, as tight as possible to prevent any holes occurring in slack sewing.
Then turn the right way round - PRESENTATION side OUT.
For the woolen flap to close, cast on some stitches (i casted on 10, and knitted/purled 4 rows).
Sew this on to the back with excess wool, again, do it tight.
