MOCK CABLES – Kindle 2 Cover

About this pattern: a Kindle 2 cover I knit for my boyfriend.  The lace pattern is the same as the Artichoke scarf pattern – easy to remember and looks nice!

Attention: I did not gauge this pattern.  It is useful to work this with your Kindle 2 handy, so that you can ‘try it on’ as you knit (if you don’t have a Kindle 2, you can look up the dimensions online and create a correctly sized cardboard cut out).  The pattern below reflects my natural gauge – if your cover is too tight or too loose, try removing or adding stitches on the sides of the cover.  As you are knitting, the cover will always look too small – it’s what keeps it snug.

Needles: size 4 circulars, at least 30” long for Magic Loop or double pointed needles.

Yarn: Sublime Soya Cotton DK, between 80-100 yards.

Pattern:

Loosely cast on 68 stitches, pattern is worked in the round.

Row 1: K2, P2, *K2, P2* repeat between *s to last 2 stitches, K2.

Row 2: K2, P2 *K1, YO, K1, P2* repeat between *s to last 2 stitches, K2.

Row 3: K2, P2, *K3, P2* repeat between *s to last 2 stitches, K2.

Row 4: K2, P2, *K3, P2* repeat between *s to last 2 stitches, K2.

Row 5: K2, P2, *K3, pass first stitch of stitches just worked over last 2, P2* repeat between *s to last 2 stitches, K2.

Repeat rows 2-5 for pattern until the Kindle 2 is completely covered.  Bind off using Kitchener’s stitch.

  1. I plan on using this pattern on my kindle fire! I also want to try and modify it for a laptop. Quick question though, how many stitches are to make the pattern? Thanks for sharing this!
