houndstooth kindle cozy

Green argyle Fair Isle Kindle cozy

This is basically a sock for a Kindle, and is my first Fair Isle project. The houndstooth stitch pattern is from Super Stitches Knitting. It was a really good stitch pattern to start with because it’s a simple one at just 4 stitches.

I love this houndstooth pattern, and will probably make something else with it at this point.

The yarn is Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima, which is 100% cotton. I learned that cotton is tricky with Fair Isle because it doesn’t have the stretch and give that a wool yarn has. While it technically fits around the Kindle, it’s not stretchy enough to make it easy to use.
