Irish Hiking Cabled Cellphone / Camera Cover

Here it is. I made this yesterday and it was quick and painless. This is my version of the Irish Hiking Cell Phone / Camera Cover. I used Muench Touch Me Chenille which I would say I would not recommend to the new knitter. I loved the texture of the yarn but it worms something awful. One comment please. The 2 pictures were taken on 2 different cameras. The close up of the stitch is the more true to color of the photos'. I had to use my husbands camera to take the photo so you could see what I made it for. Since the yarn I used was bulky it turned out just right. Sorry that the photo is not that great but I wanted to get it done and posted before I leave this morning.

Pattern as followed:
Muench Touch Me (Chenille) - several yards not much

C6F - Slip 3 sts to cable needle and hold in front of work, knit 3,
knit 3 sts from cable needle
Casted on 32 over 3 needles
(Sts per Needle for the Pattern to work 11/10/11)
Join together and work in the round.
Row 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 7: K3, P2, K6, P2, K6, P2, K6, P2, K3.
Row 8: K3, P2, C6F, P2, K6, P2, C6F, P2, K3.
Repeat Rows 1-8 three more times. For a total of 4 sets of cables.
Repeat Rows 1-4 one time so that the cable is not right at the edge of the bind off.
Bind off doing the Live Needle Bind Off or Three Needle Bind Off

I hope you enjoy this version of my cell phone cover / camara cover. I simply posted my verison of this pattern since I was unable to get the pattern from the link at the knitty coffeeshop.

Thanks and I hope you enjoy this pattern.
