Device Knitting Patterns

by | Dec 5, 2015 | Accessories, Featured, Gifts to Knit

Device Knitting Patterns for tablets and phones, most are free patterns, cases, covers, mittens, gloves, stands

We can’t live without our electronic devices or our knitting so it’s natural to bring the two together. I’ve collected knitting patterns for your phones, tablets, and electronic devices including gloves and mittens designed for texting and touchscreens, and sleeves and cozies, most are free patterns.

To get the knitting patterns, scroll down the page to the individual pattern you want and click on the link to that pattern.

These patterns are not my designs but links to other designers who have generously shared their patterns. If you have questions about how to knit a specific pattern, please contact the designer directly.
