Top knit tips

Both charts use the Fair Isle method where the yarn not in use is carried across the back of the work. Primrose is a relatively easy first design to follow, just ensure you take your time and concentrate.

The textured moss stitch and two coloured Fair Isle bands give a cushioned padded feel to this double-sided tablet holder. It’s knitted on smaller needles than recommended to add to the chunky feel.
