With stunning colours and vintage styling, Polaris makes an attractive cosy for your tablet, and is a great project for using up small amounts of leftover yarn.

The project begins with a provisional cast-on, then worked from the top down in rounds. The base of the cover is finished with a 3 needle cast-off/bind-off. Finally, stitches are picked up from the provisional cast-on to work an applied i-cord at the top edge.
