Even though it’s been hot lately I’ve been itching to do some knitting or crochet. My iPad case was looking tatty so I decided to crochet a new one. I used yarn I had kicking around my knitting basket; the bright blue and dark grey were from something I made for Scott and the other blues are leftovers from the Northmavine Hap. I’m still trying to use up that wool! I’ve been making smaller projects because I didn’t think there was much left but I’m starting to think I had more than I thought!
I crocheted my case in a colourful version of ‘tweed stitch’. This technique was from the stitch library of a book called The Crochet Bible. I don’t normally use colour in this way when I crochet so it was nice to do something a bit different.
And here’s what it looks like in the blues and greys.
I made a cord and attached this handmade larch wood button for fastening. I’ve been hanging onto this button for a while, waiting for the right project to use it on.
This is the finished case. I still have wool left over so I’ll probably make a matching phone case too.
