Then, knit 11 stitches, put 2 stitches on a cable needle (keep BEHIND work), knit 2 stitches, knit the 2 stitches of the cable needle, and the little in the middle is finished also.
Last, knit 11 stitches, put 3 stitches on a cable needle (keep BEHIND the work), knit 3 stitches, knit the 3 stitches of the cable needle, put the next 3 stitches on the cable needle (keep IN FRONT OF the work), knit 3 stitches, knit the 3 stitches of the cable needle, and the third cable is finished.

The “cable making” line is finished now. Now knit 3 lines in tricot. Than you’ve arrived at the second “cable making” row. The pattern for this is of course is the same as for the first “cable making” row (CMR).
Just repeat the above pattern for cable making until your knit work reaches a height of about 65 cm (26 inches).
Cast of, and sew the just created end together with the base of the knit work. Than close one side of the snuggler by sewing. Now the basic laptop cover is finished, and you can add some decorative elements like the crocheted flowers I made.

Version II: The Red Beret.



I made 2 minor changes to my first beret knitting pattern:
1. In stead of doing ribstitch knit 1, purl 1, I did knit 2, purl 2...
2. In stead of knitting 10 line, I knitted 14 lines...

I marked the changes in the following pattern:

Cast on 92 stitches.
Knit 10 lines in rib stitch (2K,2P)
In line 11, double all stitches. This means you go from 92 stitches to 184.
Then, knit 14 lines.
After these 14 lines, decrease the amount of stitches as following:
The rest of the pattern is the same as my previous white beret.
