Crochet WeekDay: Gadget Glove

August 17, 2008
GADGET GLOVE

History
My DH got a External Harddrive to store his Movie collection. He couldnt find a cover for it, so i offered him to crochet one. I just took its length and breadth measurements. Using the the gauge calculated the number of stitches and crocheted this. The Best Part is my DH loved it. Now i got a request from him to make some luggage tags 🙂
FO - Gadget Glove3
FO - Gadget Glove2FO - Gadget Glove1
Yarn:
Lily Sugar n Cream Omberes in “Swimming Pool” Color
Hook: 4mm Pony Metal
Others: A Button and Tapestry Needle.
Size: 4” by 6.5”
Pattern: My Own
Notes:
I crocheted this using the gauge on the Ball Band and the measurements of the drive. Added an overall ease of 0.5” to accommodate the thickness of the gadget and the stitching.
Added a pocket in the Front to keep the wires.
Initial intention was not to add the button but then though it will be better to have a closure to prevent accidental fall of the gadget from its glove.

If i make it again;
I will use a solid color yarn.
Learnt:
Adding a Pocket
Time:
3 Days.

    Thanks Yasmin. I actually made him some luggage tags as he had to travel and it will be easy for him to find his luggage at the airport, but damn i forgot to take the photos. I made two and the pattern is there on ravelry for free. (Like this i reduced my stash of some bright colors)
