I wanted a better way to store my interchangeable needles from Knitpicks. Most needle cases seem to be for straight needles or for fixed circulars. So I figured this out for myself. The pattern has clear step-by-step instructions and over 20 photographs that illustrate each step. You will see what the case looks like at each stage. You will take the cover from an old unwanted book (recycling!), and cover it with pretty fabric. Add slots for the needles, and pockets for cables, notions, or other items. Use it also to store your cable needles, crochet hooks and DPNs. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Hand sewing Measure and cut fabric SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Varies by size of book used

Supplies Needed

  • Old unwanted hard cover book
  • Old unwanted T-shirt
  • 2 pieces of fabric, matching or coordinating, about 20" x 20" (50 x 50 cm)

I have been knitting on and off since my teens, but became somewhat obsessed with it in 2007. I love squishy wools for the short, mild Los Angeles winters, and like cottons and blends for the rest of the year. I really believe that even beginner knitters can create something beautiful and useful, so I strive to keep patterns simple yet original. I am Goodstuff on Ravelry, and blog from time to time about knitting and life here: I have sold designs to Interweave Knits, Knitpicks, Creative Knitting magazine, KNIT magazine (Yarn Forward), Yarn magazine, Knit Now magazine, Classic Elite Yarns, The Sanguine Gryphon, and Three Irish Girls Yarns.
