it has been a while, but I have devised a new crochet case for the Ben
I call this release of the case "castle" because of the look when flap is open.
adjustable strap (not suitable for running with yet though, just walking)
I am interested in making people custom order cases. If anyone wants one, let me know (perhaps I will have to use another channel, not the main mailing list? )
A case would be 7.95 USD regardless of customization options.
I will be reworking the strap and using real buttons in future versions (currently buttons are made of yarn.
I will try to give "source code " for the current pattern if anyone wants to try to make a case
chain as many as your device is wide (in my case it was 15 for Ben Nanonote, case can be adapted for any device)
chain an additional 2
hdc in 3rd chain from hook and each chain remaining
when you get to last ch, turn and work hdc into OTHER side of chain
slip stitch to ch-2 from beggining
repeat rounds of hdc until case is as tall as you want
finish off;weave in ends (2)
attach yarn to edge of case where you want
ch 3 (counts as dc)
dc in next 4 stitches (5 total)
ch 3, turn, dc in next 4 dc (repeat until strap is desired length)
6 sc in 2nd chain from hook
6sc in same chain to overlap first 6 sc
obviously this is not all the info you need, but I will release more when I have time.
full pattern (when released) will always be free as in free speech. Of course one could "reverse engineer" a case too.
-hack well, take care
