Well, it started out as just a tester cloth for knitting with 4 needles following Amy’s video on this subject while I was waiting untill I was able to go into town and pick up some nice yarn to make something else.
After a few tries I had finally figured it out and got a few inches of knitted “tube” (it looks like the edge of a sweatersleeve). I was about to rip it out again because I feel I’ve got it figured out and I had no idea what to do with this little piece of knitting.
but today I bought a new cell phone and it’s tiny and so nice and new that I would like to have it live in something protective while it travels in my bag and I noticed that my little knitted tube is just wide enough to hold the phone. YAY!!! So I’m going to add a bit more lenght to it untill it can fit the entire phone but here comes my question:
does anyone have a nice way of closing both top and bottom? I was thinking of maybe just decreasing my stitches untill there are just a tiny few left and tie it shut so I’d have a bottom and maybe at the top I could threat some sort of elastic through it?
I was originally thinking about neatly ending half of the stitches I have on the needles when it is high enough for my phone and keep knitting with the other half to make a small flap which can close over the top, which I think would look nicer, but by doing it that way I’d still have one open side and I don’t know how to neatly make a bottom on that side.
Any other ideas from you guys?
