KNITTING TIP: Work all YO into back of loop to avoid a hole.

STRIPE PATTERN: * 2 rounds off-white, 4 rounds red, 2 rounds off-white, 6 rounds red, 2 rounds off-white, 2 rounds red *, repeat from *-*.

FELTING: To avoid the case felting tog during wash, attach a small plastic bag inside the top before putting it in the washing machine.
Wash case at 40 degrees with a detergent free of enzymes and optical bleach, with normal spin, but no pre-wash.
After wash shape the case while still wet, and leave to dry flat.
