I am finally participating in Jakesprinter’s Sunday Post!  This week’s theme is Design.  Rather than posting from my main blog, Comments from Cathy, it seemed to fit the theme better if I posted from my crochet blog!

After all my Christmas crocheting my stash consisted of numerous small balls of yarn. I decided to use up as much as I could by making a laptop case for my new mini.

This design is my own. I hope you like it!  I’ve been known to make a variety of bags for different occasions.  This was is a bit different from the others because of the striping pattern and the variety of colors.

Here are the front and the back…

The opening and the tie/closure.

Here’s a close-up of the opening as the fabric is doubled.

As far as the stripes…there’s a pattern that’s said to be pleasant to the eye.  It occurs in nature and is called the Fibonacci sequence.  Since I had varying lengths of yarn in my stash this seemed to be a natural choice!

The striping pattern is 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13, then decreasing (from 13 ) – 8 – 5- 3 – 2 – 1 – 1.

For the Math aficionados, add the preceding row to get the next result:

0 + 1 = 1

1 + 1 = 2

2 + 1 + 3

3 + 2 = 5 etc.

Because of the size of the case I stopped at 13 rows as far as the sequence. You can see this on the back side.

The last photo shows the case in action as I was in getting ready to use the netbook at the airport!

Happy Crocheting!
