So I wanted to knit the 'Paddy' iPad cover from Lets Knit Magazine issue 45 Aug 2011.

I exchanged the yarn for what I had and my guage seemed to be fine, but when I got to the end of the main body of knitting I realised that it was far to small! Not wanting to waste all the hard colourwork kniting I had done I then winged the rest of the pattern and made it into a cover for a mini Hot water bottle I had recently bought.

Think it turned out quite well, dont you? Smiley

Here's a better shot of the colours, the pic above is a little washed out:

Good rescue!  I've got a sweater half done, that I've redone twice and it still doesn't fit well, and I just can't bring myself to rip it all out.  Thumbs up on the creative thinking!

And for some reason, looking at the main body of your cover looks like crochet to me.  I'll have to check out that stitch.  It looks like alot of work.

That's really cool.  I've been to afraid to try colorwork, but yours is lovely.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Thanks everyone Smiley

dulcet - It's actually not that bad a stitch. It's my 1st time doing colourwork too:

3 yard colours = A, B & C

Cast on with A
P whole row
Row 1 - Yarn C = k1 *sl1 wyif, k1,  rep from * to end
Row 2 -Yarn B = k1, p1, *sl1 wyib, p1, rep from * to end
Row 3 -Yarn A = k1 *sl1 wyif, k1,  rep from * to end
Row 4 -Yarn C = k1, p1, *sl1 wyib, p1, rep from * to end
Row 5 -Yarn B = k1 *sl1 wyif, k1,  rep from * to end
Row 6 -Yarn A = k1, p1, *sl1 wyib, p1, rep from * to end

Keep repeating the above til reaching desired length, ending on a row 5, then purl the next row with Yarn A.

Plumbucket -  keep at it, Im sure you will get there eventually Sad either that or turn it into something else - a cushion cover maybe?
