Knit a seamless sleeve for any size hand-held electronic device, from an MP3 player to a cell phone, an ebook reader to a tablet computer. The sleeve is knit back and forth on two double-pointed needles (for smaller projects) or one circular needle (for larger projects).

This pattern provides an introduction to tubular double knitting and the i-cord bind-off with an i-cord button loop.

You will need the width and height measurements of the electronic device the sleeve is to fit.

Yarn requirements: Almost any wool or other ‘cushy’ or ‘bouncy’ yarn from fingering to bulky weight is recommended. Fingering to DK-weight yarns for smaller sleeves, or worsted to bulky weight for larger ones, usually give the best results. (Linen and some cotton yarns, for example, don’t provide as much protection from bumps as a bouncier yarn, but are attractive and useful.)

The amount of yarn required obviously depends on the size of the project, but in most cases, one 50g ball is plenty, possibly enough for several small items.

This project is great for handspun or hand-painted yarns, but semi-solid or solid color yarns are equally well suited, as they bring out the texture of the knitted fabric.

Knitting a gauge swatch is mandatory! The gauge, needle size and number of stitches to cast on will be based on the swatch.
