Lion Brand Sizing Notes:
Laptops vary quite a lot in size; this pattern can easily be adapted to any size, providing you follow the rules below. Knitting that is being felted shrinks more in the vertical direction than in the horizontal direction. Your piece, before felting, should be 1.5 times as tall as you need on the finished vertical dimension and 1.2 times as wide as needed on the horizontal dimension.

See instructions for additional details.
