As Promised, My Handmade iPad Cover
This was a super easy pattern. I basically just knit a stockinette stitch the whole time. I measured it at eight inches across and 23 inches long. After the cast-on, I did a seed stitch for two rows, and the same with the last two rows. The cute part is where I stitched the edges. I think it adds just the right amount of craftiness to the whole thing. The buttonholes were the hardest part, but I found a how-to guide at www.knittingonthenet.com.
The iPad fits snuggly inside the cover and protects it from dust or other scary irritants. Plus, since it is made from a 75% microfiber blend, it will not scratch the giant, vulnerable 10-inch screen.
