Pattern: Shifting Rib iPad Sleeve

Hello Everyone!

A few days ago I released my latest pattern: The shifting rib iPad sleeve.

Shifting Rib Ipad sleeve with buttoned flap

I already have 2 other iPad sleeve pattern s out there, but those are both colorwork and I wanted a different option out there for those of you who don’t like stranded colorwork. I wanted to keep it simple with a rib, but didn’t want the knitting to get dull (because knitting inches upon inches op ribbing does unfortunately get a little boring!) so opted for this shifting rib. The rib makes the sleeve very stretchy.

Here’s the information from the pattern page (click here):

The Shifting Rib iPad sleeve is very stretchy due to the ribbed texture. The iPad sleeve would work well in both variegated and solids yarns. The shifting of the rib creates a texture that is interesting to look at, yet simple to knit.

The pattern includes instructions for 2 different styles of flap: an envelope style flap that closes by tucking the flap in or a buttoned flap. Sample has an envelope style flap.

This pattern was written for a iPad 1,2,3, and 4 and iPad Air. Instructions are given to change the height and width of the ipad sleeve.
Measurements of iPad 2:
Height: 241 mm (9.50 inch)
Width: 186 mm (7.31 inch)
Depth: 8.6 mm (0.34 inch)

Gauge: 5 stitches per inch and 7 rows per inch in stockinette (worked flat).

Pattern is written. Pattern is 2 pages long.

The pattern is 3 euros (excluding VAT for those of us in the EU).

I actually ended up liking this one more than the colorwork ones. I think it’s the cute buttons I used. The reddish pink is such a nice contrast to the light green. And because they’re mismatched it’s a bit more playful.

What do you think of the shifting rib iPad sleeve?

Love, Renée

  1. I love this design. The texture of the shifting rib is very striking, especially on this choice of brightly coloured yarn. I like the contrasting button. The same design idea would also transfer well to a pattern for a hot-water bottle cover, or even a purse.

    This is a nice design and with you including instructions on how to modify the size you’ve provided a very versatile design.
