About this pattern: this was my 4th Kindle 2 cover, which I knit for my mother-in-law. It is done in a fairly simple lace stitch that is suitable for beginners and knits up pretty quickly. The cover is knit similarly to an ankle-down sock without the headache of the heel and without toe decreases.
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 8 circulars, at least 30” long for Magic Loop or double pointed needles.
