Chunky Crochet Tablet Cover Photo Tutorial

This colorful, chunky crochet tablet cover pattern is a useful gifts for kids and teens. You can easily customize it to fit any tablet or Kindle you need. As an added bonus, this crochet tablet case includes a handy earbuds pocket.

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.

The three colors combine well, giving this crochet tablet case a color block effect. Maybe my niece will like it so much, she’ll put her tablet away when she’s done. Not to mention, taking the time to wrap up the earbuds and stow them away too.
