Pattern Description:

Both my grandson and I needed a bag or case to protect our netbooks, so I designed this to fit exactly our specifications - it needed to have a tailored, seamless, clean look; be protective, be adaptable to any size, and be a quick knit.

You will learn the very easy one-color double-knitting technique that enables you to knit the bag flat, yet produce a fabric that has in-the-round construction (minus any seams). There is also a short tutorial on producing the celtic knot seen on the front of the bag. I added it as an embellishment only, and you may choose to leave it out entirely or make a button-and-loop closure, or whatever your imagination tells you works best.

To achieve the size and texture of the original pattern, you will felt the bag upon completing the knitting; however, you may experiment with sizing and leave it unfelted if that's your preference. If you will be using it to protect a netbook, iPad, laptop, etc., the felting definitely gives a nice firm, cushion-y fabric.

The following techniques are clearly included in the pattern:
double knitting technique (one-color, knit flat to produce a seamless in-the-round bag)

Gauge:

10 stitches and 15 rows = 4 inches in Double Knit Stockinette

Gauge is not critical, as the felting process allows you to keep checking the bag until you achieve the size you require

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • The instructions are for a netbook with a finished size of 10-1/2” W x 7-1/2” L x 1-3/4” D (gusset area top and bottom).

Materials:

  • U.S. #13 needles (flat or circular),
  • Feltable Wool (I used Lion Brand Fishermens Wool) 250-300 yds
  • DPNs - your size choice depending how thick you'd like your icord to be

You Will Also Need:

  • embroidery needle for weaving in ends
