You need to learn how to knit first. get some cheap yarn and practice a scarf. check out your public library for books on knitting and patterns

If you don't have experience knitting, consider the plastic looms (either the straight or circular). It will still take a bit of practice to get consistent results. Experiment with the different sizes to get the "fit" n the laptop you want, then just make a tube the length of the body and stitch one end closed.

Find the pattern in one of the links I am giving you. Pick the person you want to help you and give them that information. They will tell you what you will need and you can use it to practice with and not get something you will never use again. They should now be able to give you links that will teach you to knit or crochet. When you have practiced enough and feel ready to start you can ask that person if they are willing to help you if you get stuck making the sleeve. As far as time is concerned it depends on how much time you can devote to it, no mistakes you have to rip down to correct, I can’t give you an answer as I still have to make corrections and I have been doing both for lotsa years. Have fun and most of all have patience.

EDIT If you want to save time and make it quickly you can do so by finger knitting
