Sunglasses Case with Cables – Knitting Pattern

Well, it's about time for a new pattern methinks. Long overdue infact. I blame the app I usually use for blogging…. Which for some reason keeps crashing and losing my very witty comments. So I've changed…. Goodby “posted using blog press” and hello “posted with bloggy”.

 

With Cyclone Lusi being a bit of a let down around here, all I get is a lot of humidity and heat…. It's time for a sunglasses case… Or glasses case. And I do love me some cables. This one is seamless, made on 3 needles, and best out of 100% cotton (something that won't scratch the ol lenses)

 

You will need:

3 x 4mm double pointed needles

Cable needle

Button

100% cotton DK yarn

 

Sunglasses case

 

Cast on 20

Knit front and back of each stitch, placing each alternate stitch on different needles. This will give you 20 stitches on each needle.

 

Knit 1 rotation

 

The pattern repeats over 6 rows

1. Knit 5, purl 2, knit 6, purl 2, knit 5 – repeat on second needle.

2. Knit 5, purl 2, knit 6, purl 2, knit 5 – repeat on second needle.

3. Knit 5, purl 2, place 3 on a cable needle to the back, knit 3, knit 3 from cable needle, purl 2, knit 5 – repeat on second needle.

4. Knit 5, purl 2, knit 6, purl 2, knit 5 – repeat on second needle.

5. Knit 5, purl 2, knit 6, purl 2, knit 5 – repeat on second needle.

6. Knit 5, purl 2, knit 6, purl 2, knit 5 – repeat on second needle.

 

Repeat these 6 rows 7 times.

 

Cast off 20 (all stitches from first needle.)

 

Complete on remaining stitches, knitting back and forth.
