Hi! It’s been on my list to make a crochet kindle cover for awhile now, and it can be modified to make it work for an iPad case, e-reader or any sort of tablet too!
- Yarn of choice – I used this Millamia yarn in the color Seaweed which I think is my favorite cotton. I like the grip of a cotton for this project.
- Coordinating hook size to yarn – THESE HOOKS ARE THE BEST AND YOU NEEEEED THEM
- Tablet/Kindle/E-Reader to measure against
- Yarn needle
- Optional: Small piece of fabric for lining
- Optional: Needle and Coordinating Thread
- Optional: Fabritac Glue
- Optional: Button (mine is from my vintage button collection)
- Side Note: THIS IS the marble hard cover on my kindle.
Crochet Kindle Cover Pattern
- Start with a slip knot
- chain 36 (or whatever size you need – must be multiple of 2)
- Place 2 single crochets in the 4th chain from the hook
- Skip 1 foundation and crochet 2 single crochets in the next foundation chain.
- Repeat all the way down the foundation chain
- chain 2 and turn your work
- skip the first stitch and place 2 single crochets in the second stitch.
- skip 1 sc and place 2 in the next repeating all the way down.
- Continue until you reach the desired panel size. Repeat steps to make 2nd panel.
- NOTE: You can make one long panel and just sew up the sides. That is a great way. I opted not to so that my stitch wouldn’t be upside down on the back 😉
Attach 2 panels together
- Fasten off and weave in tails from panel 1.
- For panel 2, do not cut yarn and fasten off.
- Place panel 2 on top of panel one. Insert hook through the sides of both panels and sc to secure along the side, the bottom and back up the other side.
- Cut yarn and weave in all tails.
Make Optional Lining
- Cut fabric to size and use fabric glue to seal the sides and top
- Insert into crocheted outer cover and hand sew in place
Optional Crochet Strap and Button
- Choose your button before you make your strap.
- Make your foundation chain to size, sc in the 2nd chain and sc all the way down. Once you reach the end make a chain long enough to go around your button (mine was 10). sc in the first stitch and then all the way back down the previous row of sc to create the strap.
- Hand sew it into place and sew the button to the cover.
You’re all done! I can’t wait to see your crochet kindle cover! Here is the full video tutorial for those that need it 😉
