I had a dilemma: I am not a designer, and I do not own an iPad. So I had to figure out how to get the right size cover for an iPad. There are not very many iPad patterns out there, and the ones that are are just a bit too elaborate for my current knitting skills. To get the right size for an iPad, I Googled (thank God for Google!) to get the right dimensions, and found a Christmas Card which was almost the right size! Perfect!
I knew I wanted a bigger version of the iPhone cover that I could already do. So I knew I had to cast on more stitches. I started off with little test swatches, and had a bit of a Goldilocks moment, where it was too big, then too small. Then it was just right. Cast on 80 stitches with my 3+3/4 needles and continued in my ribbing pattern, until it was the right size.
And here's the result:
I can already see three small mistakes, and it's definitely not perfect. But it's a start.
I will pass this one over to SusanKMann to test drive for size (she's a lucky iPad owner!) and I'll await her verdict! If it fits, I'll definitely knit some more, without the mistakes this time!!
