"Despicable Me" Minion - iPad Cozy - Knitting Pattern

As the other Minion themed knitting patterns have been going gang-busters, it was time to finish this iPad cozy. I admit it's been on the needles for like a month! It's been a crazy month, and my wrists were still recovering from RSI from knitting the Doctor Who Scarf.



But I am pleased with this endevour no end.

4.5mm needles
Yellow and blue dk wool
Scraps of black, white and grey wool
1 large black button
Crochet hook
Bodkin needle
Scraps of stuffing

Cut yarn, thread through remaining stitch. Crochet a chain approx 5 cm long, attach as a loop to the top of the point.







On the short side of the cover, pick up 15 stitches in blue for the front of the overalls. These should start 10 stitches in from the edge.
Stst 10 rows in blue.

Stitch up the side and bottom of the cover. Insert iPad or cardboard the right size into the cover. Embroider overall straps and eye-goggle band on. This helps to keep the right shape for the cover.

Crochet a white circle, approx 8cm in diameter. Crochet one row of grey around the white centre and stitch onto the cover. Stitch a large black button onto the centre of the eye. You could use felt rather than crochet the eye piece.


Arms - optional - make 2

Cast on 16 stitches
Stst 12 rows
K2 tog over whole row
Cut yarn, slip all remaining stitches onto yarn, pull to tighten. Stitch up the side, stuff and attach to the cozy.
