Other Minion Knitting Ideas

Your phone and your iPad are basically your personal assistants anyway, so why not make it official with some awesome knit minion cases for them? While your at it, add to your swarm of henchmen with some minion fingerless gloves. People might just think you're up to something despicable.



*Knitting minion patterns will  not actually help you take over the world or steal the moon. They won't even assist with your cooking or laundry. Minions really are just to wear and play with. However, they will make you awesome among family and friends, so you should make them anyway.
