So today was a snow day! yay!  Grin anywhoo, i got bored and decided i really needed a remote control caddy. See i have a loft bed and i'm constantly losing the remote from it falling off my bed and into the abyss that is my floor. But now problem fixed! Voila! I've also been wanting to try colorwork for a while so i threw a little of that into it too =]

here's a pic of how i got it onto my bed, i just braided together 3 strands of yarn for the ties.

p.s. if anyone wants a pattern you can hit me up and i'll do my best. I taught myself to knit so some of my methods are a bit err... unconventional  Tongue  but i'm always glad to help! Hope you like!
Ooh and this is my first post so I hope i'm doing this right  Wink

ook so here's the pattern as best as I could remember it =]

I knit the base of this first, then picked up stitched around the edges and knit it in the round.
So Co 18 stitches and knit back and forth in stockinette for 12 rows.
Make sure you slip the first stitch of each row to make it easier to pick up the stitches and end with a knit row.
Leaving the 18 stitches on the one needle use another to pick up 6 stitches on the side, 18 on the next and 6 on the other side. You should end up with 48 stitches.
 knit in the round for about 3/4".
Then i used the color chart from this pattern. I started the chart in the middle of the back needle. http://throughtheloops.typepad.com/Mirelle.pdf
After the chart is done knit another 3/4"
Then for the top flap, knit 9 stitches and cast off 30 and knit the next 18.
knit for about and 1" in stockinette and cast off.
For the ties I cut 3 strands of yarn, used a crochet hook to pull the 3 strands through one of the corners, then folded them over so the ends match and braided them together. Repeat for 4 ties, 2 on top corners and 2 on bottom.

I hope this made some sense, i've never written a pattern before so if anyone has any questions feel free to ask. I'll try to clarify. And if anyone tries this let me know how it works out for you, I'd love to see pictures of how someone else is using it!

What a cool idea!

The fair isle is really pretty. I especially like those squiggles on the bottom. They are fun.

there are two things that I don't believe in: coincidence and leprechauns

Is the whole thing knit in the round (specifically the 12 rows of stockinette)?

sorry i wasn't really specific about that part. Those first 12 rows of stockinette are knit back and forth to form a kind of base for caddy. Then you pick up stitches around the edge of the base and knit in the round from there.
