I wanted a soft case for my iPad mini, and I have always loved celtic knots. Knitting lends itself quite well to create celtic knots with cables, so thus the Celtic Mini Tablet Case was born. It is a nice thick case that will protect against scratches. Solid colored yarns show off the celtic pattern quite nicely.

This case is designed for an iPad mini, with a finished size of 6” by 8.5” (15.24 cm by 21.6 cm). It should accommodate smaller tablets with a bit of extra space inside and slightly larger tablets with some stretch.

Types of stitches required: knits, purls, cables, increases, decreases, slipped stitches.


  • Size 7 US (4.5mm) needles (circular or double pointed for working in the round).

  • Approximately 140-160 yards (128-146 m) of worsted weight yarn.

  • Cable needle.

  • Needle to weave in ends.

  • 2 approximately 0.75-inch (19mm) diameter buttons.

  • Needle and matching thread to attach buttons.
