I’ve seen/heard about crochet iPad covers.
I decided to just see what would happen if I attempted one.
It turned out different than my “vision” of it,
but I still like how it turned out.
I may have to try another one soon.
We’ll see. 🙂
Alright, here are the directions to make your own crochet iPad Cover.
Of course you could always size the stitch differently,
and then you could have a Kindle cover, a phone cover, etc.
iPad/Tablet Case Tutorial:
Hook Size: H Hook
(Honestly, I only used H b/c I have an awesome hook from my SIL)
Yarn: I used Vanna’s Choice, 4 (Med), 145 yrds, and I used almost the entire thing.
Of course you can use what you want, that is similar. 🙂
HDC in 3rd ch from hook.
Rows 1-20: *HDC across 41 st, ch 1, turn*
Repeat from * to * until 20 rows is complete.
Rows 21-39: *HDC across 28 st., ch 1, turn.*
Repeat from * to * until 19 shorter rows are complete.
Do not finish off!
You’ll want to make sure your last row is finished towards the top,
it’ll be easier to stitch up the side and bottom that way.
Stitch up the sides: Slip stitch the side, and then continue to bottom.
Finish off in bottom corner.
Here is a little picture to help.
Ties: Chain 75. Tie off with a knot, on top and bottom.
Button: Fold the flap down, and place button just under the flap.
Sew with yarn. I did about 2-3 passes.
Knot ends together on the inside of case.
Ta da! You’ve got a case. 🙂
Enjoy! Let me know if you have any other questions.
