Knit Cover for My Nexus 10 Tablet

 I received my Nexus 10 Tablet as a gift for my retirement from my career as a Business Administrator at the end of June.  It has quickly become a favorite.  I keep it close by throughout the day and take it with me wherever I go.

I immediately decided that it needed a unique cover to keep in safe while it was in my purse or knitting bag.  Here is the finished sleeve.

The yarn is Berroco Weekend.  It is 25% cotton and 75% acrylic. The colors that I used are Cerulean Blue (5942) and Vanilla (5902)  The contrast produced a sharp, crisp color combination.

 Although the stitch looks complicated, it’s really simple, changing color every two rows.  Here’s the stitch directions:

Row 1 (RS) Color (A) *k1, bring yarn to front of work, slip 1 as if to purl* repeat from * to *, ending with Knit last 2 stitches

Row 2 Color (A) *P1, bring yarn to back, slip 1 as if to purl*, repeat from * to *, ending with purl last 2 stitches

Row 3 Using Color (B) Repeat Row 1

Row 4 Using Color (B) Repeat Row 2

This stitch pattern has a nice texture and provides the tablet with some protection. 

I added a triangular flap and a button and buttonhole closure.

And can you think of a better way to celebrate my new found freedom than a beach vacation. Here’s my knitting at the beach early in the morning.  What a great way to start the day.  Knitting at the beach!
