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