I finished this a few weeks ago. I crocheted this using Noro Silk Garden. I ended up using at least 3 different color palettes. I love this yarn! Not great for an afghan though--still kind of rough for that, but then I'm kind of picky about those things. And no, I didn't block it. I got the pattern for this case right here. Oh, I added the straps and made my own puffy buttons.
