FO: Google N7 Tablet "sleeve"
My husband has taken time out of the woods to join us in the 21st Century!

He purchased the new Google Nexus 7 Tablet...for surfing Craig's List, Ebay, etc. for tools, pigeons,
tires, rims, etc! Guy stuff that he has to twist my arm to do for him. Gah!

Anyway, I used 108 yds of dk stash to knit up a sleeve for his tablet. I included two buttons at the top so that the (bottom) centered micro-USB port is easily accessible when the tablet is headfirst in the sleeve overnight.

I know that many 'cases' can be purchased...but I was so undecided about what kind...

Who can go wrong with knitting a sleeve in 24 hrs? If I find a commercial case or sleeve later on,
nothing lost really. Just a little time and yarn!

Here are my Ravely notes with all the details about the pattern.

Bottom side view, shows the P3 gusset:

Bottom view, shows the 3st wide Garter Stitch:

Easy to button, the tablet sits below the garter ridge top border:

Always slide in face up, so buttons don't scrape the face of the tablet:
