OK, let’s see how I put this in words to make it easy to understand
I want to knit a laptop cover for a friend of mine and I want to use this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/laptop-sampler
Here’s a picture in case you are not on Ravelry:
The problem is that I don’t have the book where this pattern appears, so I’ve figured it out by myself. It’s pretty easy, as it’s basically made up of rows in different stitches (K1-P1 ribbing, seed stitch, box stitch and double seed stitch).
Now, my question is, if this pattern is knitted in the round starting by the top (the K1-P1 ribbing), how do you knit the flap? Do you start off with the flap and then add more stitches when you reach the first row of the actual cover? or do you simply start knitting the cover and add the flap later on by picking up those stitches? In that case, what’s the trick to obtain a perfect, seamless result like the one in the pictures?
Yeah, I’m completely lost with this simple pattern… :knitting: any help will be much appreciated
