Crochet iPad Sleeve-Free Pattern!

I just got my AMAZING new gadget and I needed a nice, simple cosy to keep it in! I decided to make this very easy, crocheted sleeve. The sleeve has a fold-over flap at the bottom to protect it from all corners, but you can also easily charge it with the sleeve on! Enjoy my free pattern! (Fits standard iPad)

Crochet iPad Sleeve

By: Carrissa Knox




Materials:

I/9-5.50MM Crochet hook

Medium, worsted weight yarn

(Pictured: Patons Classic Wool-Leaf Green and Lion Brand Yarn, Vanna's Choice-Cambridge)

Yarn needle




Stitches Used:

Single Crochet (insert hook from front to back, yo, draw up a loop, yo, pull through both loops on hook)




Abbreviations:

Single Crochet (sc)

Chain (ch)

Stitch (st)

Slip-Stitch (sl st)




Pattern: *This pattern is like working in rows, but you are actually working in the round.

COLOR 1

Ch 26.

Round 1: Sc in each of the 25 sts across.

(Instead of turning, you are going to continue working around the backside of the chains to turn your work into rounds.) Continue with 25 sc along the back. Join with a sl st in the first st. Ch 1.

Round 2: Sc in each of the 50 sts around. Join with a sl st in first ch. Ch 1.

Rounds 3-11: Repeat round 2.

COLOR 2

*Repeat round 2 for 11 rounds*

COLOR 1

*Repeat round 2 for 11 rounds*

COLOR 2

*Repeat round 2 for 11 rounds*

COLOR 1

Round 1: Sc in each of the 50 sts around. Join with a sl st in ch 1. Ch 1.

Round 2: Sc in next 27 sts, ch 21, skip the next 21 sts and sc in the last 2 sts. Join with a sl st in first ch. Ch 1.

Round 3: Sc in next 27 sts, sc in next 21 chs, sc in last 2 sts. Join with a sl st in first ch. Ch 1.

Rounds 4-8: Repeat round 3

Make sure your sleeve fits perfectly over your iPad and turn the top flap inside out so you are looking at the inside where you will join the seam.

Sc through the next sc and the sc in the round behind it. (Yo, insert hook from front to back through first sc and sc in the round behind it, yo, pull up a loop, yo, pull through both loops on hook)

*Similar to slip stitching them together, but you will want to sc instead of sl st so you get a nice even seam. If you don't feel comfortable, you can sew together*




Finish: Tie off and tuck in all ends with the yarn needle.
