So much crafting, so little time...

My iPod had a very boring case that I made awhile ago, so I decided I needed to make it more interesting.  Being that many of my favorite bands come from Britain (The Smiths, The Clash, etc)  I decided to go for a British flag case.  This also gave me a good chance to practice my colorwork.
I drew up a chart for the flag, embroidering the white stripes afterward.  The back is plain black.  Very simple and easy, it only took me about two days to make.
Enjoy!




And here's the rough pattern w/chart

I used several different worsted yarns (double stranded), including Lion Brand Wool-ease, Cascade 220 and random acrylic.
For the flag side, I knit 2 rows in garter st in the black yarn, then knitted the cart in stockinette (the crossed out rows on the side were included)



The I knit two more rows of garter in black, and bound off.  I embroidered the white stripes.

For the back, you could just knit the same amount of rows and sts in plain black.  Then sew both panels together.  I made the back of mine differently, but I'm not sure how to explain it on here.  It's the same construction as the top part of the house slippers in Knit Two Together, by Mel Clark and Tracey Ullman.  That book probably explains it better than I can.

And that's it.  Simple, easy, fast and a great stash buster.

Would you consider posting a pattern, or at least the chart?

I love The Smiths and I am listening to "William, it was really nothing".  My friends think I'm wierd because most bands I like are way before my time.

Nice! Considering 90% of the bands I like are British, this would be perfect for my iPod!
