This DS case is both stylish and sophisticated and yet it is fun.

The houndstooth pattern gives a classic feel to this knitted accessory for a very modern item, and the colourwork pattern is particularly easy, floats never being carried across more than three stitches, meaning you do not need to worry about twisting the carried yarn in with the working yarn to secure it.

This small, easily accomplished project would make a great introduction to stranded colourwork knitting as floats of yarn at the back are never carried across more than three stitches at a time, meaning there is no need to worry about twisting floats along the working yarn or anything like that.
