If you’re not quite ready for fall crocheting this chunky crochet tablet cover is a great summer project. It’s small, quick and useful. My niece requested this one for her Kindle Fire and even provided the yarn (she’s still learning). I’m not sure what type of yarn we used, but Lion Brand yarn looks about right. The finished sleeve is 7 1/2 long X 4 3/4 inches wide.

We included a pocket to store her earbuds or charger, which measures 4″ square. I just tugged the center point down when sewing the pocket on to give the bottom that curved appearance. This pattern is worked in two rectangles and then sewn together.

Gauge:

4″=9 stitches X 9 rows (the pocket)

Cut yarn, but leave a long tail for sewing together.

Finish:

Match up the two rectangles and sew together on 3 sides, matching row to row. Remember to keep the sc edge of the pink rectangle up (& unsewn) for the opening. Weave in tail.

Sew on a button about 3-4 rows down from the sc edge.

Sew pocket to front, on three sides. Pull down bottom center as you sew to give it a curved appearance. Leave top of pocket open. Cut yarn and weave in end.



Eccola! I love how this chunky yarn adds a touch more protection to the tablet. I always love a fast and easy project too! This is a simple pattern that is easy to modify to your tablet dimensions too.
