I was just writing a little article on easy knitting patterns, and then I saw this one in Berroco’s e-newsletter, KnitBits. The Baobab pouch for an e-reader (like a Kindle ), done with sock weight yarn in seed stitch.
The pattern calls for 1 ball of Berroco Sox Metallic, but I’m sure the pouch won’t use the whole ball, so this pattern is a great stashbuster. I checked the Ravelry page for Baobab, and it looks like the pattern takes about 180 yards.
A great beginner pattern, the skills you’ll need: cast on, bind off, knit, purl, sewing on buttons, and sewing a side seam.
The pattern also includes instructions to modify the size of the pouch for other e-readers. This would make a great gift.
