I added some tweaks to improve my I-Pad Cozy. I use my I-Pad to read while I am knitting. In the past I've had to search old fat books with loose bindings that would lay flat but with the I-Pad that is all old problems from the distant past. I wanted to make the I-Pad cozy reading friendly and figure out a way to use it to prop things at the perfect reading angle. This is the result. I added these little corners and also added a flap to close the top of the envelope and to hold the roll that creates the prop for the optimum reading angle. The pattern for the cozy is available on Ravelry and you can click through by going to the pattern page here.
This is what it looks like without the I-Pad, but with the sleeve rolled and the closing flap buttoned down to secure the roll. This pattern uses Peacefleece worsted yarn and a size 6 needle. I also used Peacefleece buttons to secure the flap. The colors of this yarn are rich, heathery and beautiful and the wool makes the texture of the cozy cushiony and delightful to touch. If you button the flap the other way it closes the top of the case and makes everything nice and secure. It completely enhances my knitting and reading experience, and just when I thought it couldn't possibly be any better.
