Crochet a Kindle Tablet Cover - Free Crochet Pattern

You can crochet an easy Kindle case or cover for any new Kindle Fire HD, any other Kindle device, or any tablet with the free crochet patterns on this page. They can make a nice gift for someone who already owns a Kindle, or to give with a Kindle or tablet you are giving as a gift.

I purchased a new 7" Kindle Fire HD just a few days before Hurricane Sandy devastated the northeast. We lost power for 10 days, so until I could play with my new Kindle, I did a lot of crocheting.

I love to crochet and decided to make a case for my Kindle rather than buy one right away with an easy and free kindle cover pattern. Let me share with you what I found.

Pictured is the simple cover that I made.




The Kindle cover crochet pattern I used is done in the round




Though there are some fancy free crochet patterns on this
page, I wanted something basic and simple. I had some Red Heart flecked yarn that was perfect for what I wanted to make.

I will provide a link to a PDF of the pattern for download in a bit, but to get you started, here are the items you need and the adjustments I made:
 
Yarn: Suggested – Hayfield Bonus Aran yarn – approx 75yds. I used Red Heart Frosty Green Fleck but any color will do. You can also use a combination of leftover yarns. Hook size 4mm. I used a G/6 4.25 mm hook Button Large button (3cm diameter) Finished size: 7″ x 4.5″ – The pattern provided is for a smaller Kindle, I adjusted the size so that my finished cover measures 8″ x 5 1/2″ and will tell you how to do that in the instructions. Gauge: 15sts 20 rows = 4″ in single crochet – I used the Kindle itself as a guide for size
Starting Chain: 17 stitches – Adjust this according to the size of the Kindle or tablet you are making a cover for by simply holding the chain along the bottom edge of your device. Don’t stretch it when measuring this way or your cover will be too tight.
Round 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 14 ch stitches, 3sc in last ch stitch to turn the corner, 15 sc in back loops of chain, 3sc in final ch stitch (36) – The count will be different depending upon the size of the cover you are making, but the pattern instructions are easy enough to adjust.
After you do a couple more rounds as instructed in the pattern, make sure you have the size right by slipping the start of your cover onto the bottom edge of your Kindle or Tablet. It is such an easy pattern that it isn’t a problem to undo the rounds and increase or decrease the chain if the fit isn’t right.

Remember that it's important not to stretch the chain when you measure it against the kindle or the cover may be too tight depending upon the pattern.
