Atomic Laptop Cover
Here is the Atomic Laptop Cover that my husband requested. He hardly ever asks me to make him anything, but was super excited about this when he saw the Knits of Tomorrow book by Sue Culligan at a local yarn store. I used Cascade 220 even though the pattern calls for Rowan Creative Focus yarn.
I had to modify the pattern to fit his much smaller laptop, but since the base is mostly knit, it wasn't hard to do once I measured my gauge. It ended up a little large after blocking, so I sectioned off a pocket down the side (you can see the line about two inches from the end on the left in the picture) where he stores his mouse. If I made it again, I may not block the finished pocket or I would try to felt the case before adding the embroidery on top so there was more structure. I used Word to make templates for the circle and oval, then pinned them on and stitched around them for the embroidery.
