Reversible Kindle Envelope Cozy

Reversible Kindle Envelope Cozy

I wanted to make a new case for my kindle. I looked through my stash and found a skein of  SMC Select Tweed Deluxe, which I'd bought on a whim. The cozy was originally going to be one sided, but after playing with the pattern, I decided that I like both sides, so sewed it up so that it can be used either way:
Side A

Side B

Side B closed

Side A closed

I was going to use a fastener, but since I use either side alternately, I haven't added one, plus it's easier to get out of my bag when in tube rush hour.


1 skein SMC Select Tweed Deluxe (80m, colour 07144)

7mm needles
Tapestry needle

Cast on 32sts.
Row 1 and all odd rows (Side A): Purl
Row 2  and 4 (Side B): *K1, sl 7 purlwise; rep from * to end.
