 For today's D.I.Y project I decided to do a knitted sleeve for my kindle fire ( Review Soon). This project is very easy for those who have minimal knitting skills and a quick project for even those advanced knitters. 

You will need: 
  • Basic Knitting Skills (know how to knit and purl)
  • Size 9 knitting needles
  • three shades of your color of choice ranging from light to dark.
  • Yarn needle
  • Rule
Start by taking your lightest shade of yarn ( Color A) and cast on 50 stitches. 
  • Row 1- Knit 2, purl 2 * repeat.
  • Row 2 - Purl 2, knit 2 *repeat.
Work Rows 1& 2 until Color A measures about 3" from the bottom of the piece. 
Work Colors B & C the same way until the piece measures 9" from the bottom. 
Cast off with an additional knit stitch. 
You should now have a square piece. Fold over length wise and sew up the side and bottom thus creating a sleeve. Finish by weaving in all the ends.
Enjoy! xoxo - Hillary
