Hey Dearies! Here is a super cute new pattern for you! So, the reason why I wanted to make this tablet cover because my kindle doesn’t have a case, currently. I also wanted to make sure it could stay securely in its cover.
However, I did have to change the pattern up a bit, due to the fact that I didn’t size my kindle to the pattern correctly. As you can see in the photo, that I did have to add more of the light gray color to make sure that it would fit my kindle’s size, but I will make sure the add the gauge, so that you guys can make sure it fits your devices perfectly.
I will also include the pattern for what I did, as well, just in case if you like the way mine turned out. So, let’s talk about what you will need!
Things You Will Need:
- Medium Yarn (Size 4)
- I used the I Love This Yarn Ocean and Light Gray
- 5.0 mm hook
- Sewing needle
- Button (Color of your choice)
Gauge: 12 Single crochet and 16 rows = 4 in. (Take time to check the gauge.)
Row 1: With the main color (I used Ocean), chain 2, make 3 single crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook. Turn. (3 sc)
Row 2: Chain 1. 1 Single crochet in each stitch across. Turn
Row 3: Chain 1. Make 2 single crochets in the first stitch. 1 Single crochet in each stitch, until you reach the last stitch. Make 2 single crochets in the last stitch. Turn. (5 sc)
Row 4-19: Repeat rows 2-3. (21 sc)
Rows 20-58: Chain 1, single crochet in each stitch across. Fasten off.
Edging: Join with your second color (I used the light gray), and slip stitch in any stitch along the last row. Then single crochet around and make sure you make 3 single crochets around the two bottom corners. You only have to single crochet around the flap, but once you get to the point, single crochet and then chain 8, then single crochet again in that same point. Once you have gone around the entire project once, fasten off.
If you didn’t check the gauge or did it wrong: Since I didn’t check the gauge for my kindle, I ended up single crocheting around the 3 sides, chaining one, when I got to the flap part. If you want your flap part to be just as thick with the second color, not like mine, I would keep going around the entire thing.
Row 1: Chain 22, single crochet in the 2nd ch from the hook and across each stitch. Turn. (21 sc)
Rows 2-38: Chain 1. Single crochet in each single crochet across. Fasten off. Weave in ends.
Edging: Join with your second color (I used the light gray), and slip stitch in any stitch along the last row. Then single crochet around and make sure you make 3 single crochets around the two bottom corners. Once you have gone around the entire project once, fasten off.
If you didn’t check the gauge or did it wrong: Since I didn’t check the gauge for my kindle, I ended up single crocheting around the 3 sides, chaining one, before starting the new row. You can do all 4 sides, but I recommend that you do that if you are planning on doing another.
Make sure that the front and back pieces match up, then slip stitch them all together. You can use either the main color or secondary color. I used the secondary color, just to make sure that they would match the gray.
Then, attach the button, make sure that the flap is even from where you placed the button.
