iPad purse & fringy triangle scarf

April 11, 2010

I was one of the many who couldn’t resist getting a 1st-gen iPad (even though I said I’d wait for the 2nd gen, as all new gadgets are not without their kinks) but impatience got the best of me. I’ve a notion, though, that one of the main reasons I wanted one was so that I could craft accessories for it. :-p

So, I made this little purse using some unused wooden handles that have been languishing in my closet for who knows how long, and some leftover Amy Butler fabric from my stash.

I also finished this fringed triangle scarf (or mini-shawl) that I made using Moda Dea Tweedle Dee yarn in Surf & Turf. Big needles + chunky yarn = super-quick projects. And we all love those!

  1. Ohhhh, funny crafty things… love them both. You’ll have to report back on the iPad too. I’m intrigued by it.


  2. I’d love the pattern to this


    • Hi Wendy. Oh dear — I didn’t mean to ignore your comment. This entire year has been hectic! Thanks so much for your interest. I don’t have a pattern (simply made it up as I went along) but may write one in the future (time permitting!). Basically, it’s a triangle shaped scarf — the same as a shawl, only smaller (and tied in the back instead of the front). Any shawl pattern will give you instructions on how to knit a triangle. The design is created by knitting varying width “stripes” of stockinette and garter stitch. That is, several rows of stockinette alternated with several rows of garter. Hope you find this helpful!


  3. Where is the pattern for the triangle scarf? Love this


    • Hi Laurie! Glad you love it! I’m afraid I didn’t use a pattern, just made it up as I went along. Please see my comment above to Wendy, as I given some basic guidelines. I think I’m just going to write a pattern out, as several people have requested one. Thanks for the comment!
