I was able to make the top piece of the duster, but struggled for 3 1/2 hours trying to figure out how to do the loops for the bottom piece. I have been crocheting for over 30 years, and have never been so frustrated with a pattern. I made loops but could not figure out how to lock them so they didn't come undone.

Thanks. This pattern sounds great! If you used the 100% cotton that is used for dishcloths, that should work. And if not for computers, then pianos, cordless phones, TVremotes, or anything else that has small raised parts. Hmmm, maybe even my venician blinds. . . {:-)

Loved it, quick and easy to make!

Cute! Clever! But NOOO. More than one computer expert has warned me...Do not use microfiber cloths around computers. Any kind of static can fry a computer, as can liquid in the keyboard. Don't vacuum either! These experts advise using the cans of air spray oh so carefully so as not to let a drip fall into the keyboard. Frustrating, isn't it? If these experts and I are wrong, yay! Cleaning a computer is a high pressure hassle for me. I've already lost a desk top, and my husband a desktop and a laptop, so I'm extra cautious now. Can't afford to lose anymore!

I think this is a great idea. you spray the electronic cleaner on it also. Couldn't you?
