Caffe Latte Laptop Snug
As seen in Knit Now issue 8
I am a technophile and I am never far away from my laptop or iPad. I enjoy working in my local coffee shop and having a hand knitted cover for my laptop makes work feel luxurious whilst I sip on a latte (and sneak in a muffin or two…).
This laptop snug fits a range of gadgets from iPads to notebooks and laptops. It is an easy ribbed pattern knitted in the round which is then smocked and lined to create a thick and protective sleeve. It features an i-cord edging with button holes. The snug looks beautiful and helps to cushion the laptop when it is being carried in a bag.
To fit: iPad, 10″ netbook, 11″ netbook, 13″ netbook, 15′ laptop and 17″ laptop
