I used to think that ‘device’ cozies were a little bit frivolous. You know – something fun you made because you wanted to make it, not because it was necessary. I did think that, right up until the day I got my first tablet. It was immediately apparent that I didn’t have anywhere to keep it that would offer it the protection that it obviously needed. The solution was one that many others have hit upon before me: a handmade cover.

Difficulty: Easy

Sizes: Adjustable

Materials:

  • Any non-abrasive yarn, in both solid and vareigated colorways (Shown in Red Heart Super Saver, Black and Mexicana)
  • A compatible crochet hook (I/9 5.50mm hook used for these)
  • Yarn Needle
  • Button (optional)

Gauge: Gauge is not significant in this design.
