Caffe Latte Laptop Snug £2.50
A smocked protective laptop cover
Laptops come in all shapes and sizes, but they all need something to keep them safe on the move, and this design fits the bill perfectly
I am a technophile and I am never far away from my laptop or iPad. I enjoy working in my local coffee shop and having a hand knitted cover for my laptop makes work feel luxurious whilst I sip on a latte (and sneak in a muffin or two…).
This laptop snug fits a range of gadgets from iPads to notebooks and laptops. It is an easy ribbed pattern knitted in the round which is then smocked and lined to create a thick and protective sleeve. It features an i-cord edging with button holes. The snug looks beautiful and helps to cushion the laptop when it is being carried in a bag.
