I recently bought the KPO and :heart: love :heart: them but I do agree with the one complaint I often hear about them - the case just isn't very good. Well I couldn't let my needles sit idly by while this problem persisted so I ran out and bought some Sugar 'n Cream Cotton and whipped up this case!

The whole thing was done with two balls of Sugar 'n Cream on size 7 needles using the double knitting technique (that Amy explains here (http://knittinghelp.com/knitting/advanced_techniques/)). I think this technique is a lot of fun and I took advantage of the fact that swapping colors from front to back creates a wall. This is how I created all the pockets and just bound-off the front color at the top of the pockets to create openings. Of course I love icord too so I added some of that for ties and for a convenient loop to stick my needles in that tucks into the upper left pocket.

Thanks for looking!

That is really cute. Is there any pattern? It's one of those things where I want to just say "Would you make me one too?" But asking for a pattern seems better.

Wow!! I must applaud your creativity! :yay: And I have to agree that I'm not sure I could come up w/ something like that on the fly. I think you ought to put the pattern together & publish it! :thumbsup: Your use of the yarn colors is terrific, too!!

Thanks for all the love everyone! :muah:

I know a couple of you asked for a pattern or something similar. I am going out of town for a few days but when I get back I promise I'll try to retrace my steps and write something up. It's pretty easy if you've done double knitting before and if you haven't, it takes a little getting used to but of course Amy does a great job explaining it on this site!

i'd rather be knitting

That is fantastic. I've been wanting to make a (sewn) needle case for quite awhile but yours is much better!!
