View Full Version : FO: Knitted case for my yo-yo (My first project without using a pattern!)

About 2 weeks ago I bought a Dark Magic yoyo.

As I yoyo all the time (when I'm not knitting of course:thumbsup:) and the pockets on most womans pants don't seem to hold anything bigger then a credit card, I'd figure I'd knit something to hold this $50 yoyo:

I'd would love to hear what you think about it!

By the way, if you're wondering why in the world I would spend $50 on a yoyo, lets just say they have come a long way from walk the dog:

For the record neither of these men are me, (I'm a girl:cool:) nor am I that good.

But I will be. :)

(Excuse me if that last part was off topic)

Edit: How do I get rid of the attachments?

Thanks! :mrgreen:

A friend of mine thinks I should start selling them, but since most yoyoers (spelling?) are guys, I'm not sure they would sell...:think:

Good job! I would never have thought of making a case for a yo-yo!

Wow...you can knit a case to hold just about anthing...:yay:

Fun Idea! The guys might like it if you made it with a short cord they could put on their belt loop or something...or without a cord just so they could protect their favorite "toy":teehee:

Great idea...how'd you do the "cord"? Did you sew it on?:think:

Yes, it's sewn on in the inside of the case.

I also just left the extra strands of yarn instead of weaving them in. I think they act as a pretty nice cushion for the yoyo.

Thank you everyone for your positive feedback!

It's actulaly not very little at all.

It's about 2" all the way around :thumbsup:

and heavy...:eyes: :eyebrow:

The odd thing is that when you're playing it, it's light as air. :happydance:

Very cool!...especially considering you didn't use a pattern. I agree that guys might buy these if you made them for their pants' loop, and with interesting guy colors and patterns.

Congratulations!
