A few months ago I asked my 9 year old grandson if he would like me to crochet him something. He scanned the horizon deep in thought for a third of a second and asked me for a controller cover. I had previously made a laptop cover, phone sleeves and a tissue box cover, but this one isn’t a ‘cube’ per-se! So I bought me an Xbox ONE controller and set about creating the pattern. The cover was a hit needless to say (granted it came with a new controller). But only time will tell how long it will survive the sticky fingers and hours of ruthless usage!
