  1. Hi! I'd like to make this for an iPad mini, so I'm trying to decide what yarn weight/needle size to use to make it the right size. Can you tell me:

    1. The finished size of your netbook cover?
    2. What yarn weight (or the specific yarn) you used?
    3. What needle size you used?

    Thank you so much! This pattern is AWESOME!
