Patterns » Celtic Mini Tablet Case

Knit this cabled, Celtic knot case to protect your mini tablet in style!

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.
  • Approximately 140-160 yards 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.
