My husband thinks I have too many notebooks. I think there is no such thing and always have several on the go, all assigned to different things. One of my current favourites is my Midori MD B6 Notebook. It is my throw-it-in-the-bag notebook, perfect for random notes, drafting journals and for taking to the gym – because you never know when inspiration might strike. Even though I have a PVC cover for it, I didn’t want the pages getting crushed in my bag, so I decided to make a case for it.
I knitted the case – or “Planner Sock” as I have been calling it – using fingering weight (4 ply) sock yarn I had in my stash that I had received sometime ago in one of Knitcrate’s Mystery Minis subscription boxes.

To make, I cast-on 64 stitches using Judy’s Magic Cast-On and knitted in the round until it was big enough for the notebook. I cast-off 32 stitches, then worked back and forth to create a flap. Once the flap was large enough I cast it off, folded it over and stiched it in place. I added a crochet shell edging to keep the lip from curling, and added a beaded tassel for awesomeness.
While it might not be much of a pattern / tutorial, if you make your own “Planner Sock”, I would love to see your photos. Just post them in the comments below 😀
