This pattern is suitable as a sleeve for an iPad Mini or a Samsung Tab. It is knit in the round using either double pointed needles (DPNs) or the Magic Loop technique. The sleeve is knitted in one piece similar to a long cowl. The outer colourwork section is knitted first, followed by a picot fold line, and then the inner single-colour section.
Techniques needed to knit this project include: colourwork in two colours; knitting using the Magic Loop technique or DPNs; Judy’s Magic Cast On; working a “yarn over”; and casting off by grafting using Kitchener Stitch.
Yarn: 4ply / Fingering weight wool in 2 contrasting shades (50 grams of the MC and 25 grams of the CC)
Needles: 2.5mm and 2.75mm for working small circumferences in the round
