For my boyfriend's family this year, I decided to crochet things. And oh did I crochet, because I procrastinated as always. Haha

So here are my finished pieces (Apologies for the pics...my iPhone actually sucks at getting good pics...Sad )

His mom is a cycle coach so I made her a laptop sleeve. The top is Tuinisian Crochet backed with black fabric and then another layer of black for the pouch itself.


And his brother's scarf. They've very Scottish and both boys are really proud of it, so I wanted to make something based on that.


And the bf in the scarf to show how long it is. (I think he's rather jealous....)

They are great looking presents! Love the bicycle!

If anyone is interested. I have a small bicycle free chart here:

The size is 12 squares high by 28 squares across.

Thank you! I think I looked at your pattern, Maria but I wanted one that was a bit longer so it would fit on the case better. It was between that and the one that I used.
