some of you lovely readers asked if i could share the pattern for this tablet cover, so here goes!

a few things to keep in mind with tapestry crochet:

* when you want to change color, you change color the stitch previous. take a look at the photos for a how to
* tapestry crochet makes for a really sturdy cover, because you are crocheting over the yarn that you’re not using at the moment
* do not join rounds, this pattern is worked in the round, so use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of every round.
* if you want to make the cover another size, make sure that you end up with a number of chains in step 2  that you can divide by 6

step 1: chain 21, skip one and sc in the next stitches. sc 3 in the last st and turn. sc in the bottom of the chain you just made. you should have 42 stitches now.

step 2: sc in every st of the round.

now we are starting on the tapestry part.
make sure your tablet, phone, thingy fits in the cover you are making! now is the time to start over if it doesn’t. trust me, you do not want to find out half way in to this pattern …

//how to change color in a sc//
triangle pattern:
sc 5 in grey, change color in the 5 th sc, sc 1 yellow and change to grey in this sc. repeat. 

sc 4 in grey, change color in the 4th sc, sc 2 yellow, change to grey in the 2nd sc, repeat. 

sc 3 in grey, change color in the 3rd sc, sc 3 yellow, change to grey in the 3rd sc, repeat. 

sc 2 in grey, change color in the 2nd sc, sc 4 yellow, change to grey in the 4th sc, repeat. 

sc 1 in grey, change color in this sc, sc 5 yellow, change to grey in the 5th sc, repeat. 

now you can change colors for the next round of triangles like i did, or continue with these 2 colors.

that’s it!

have fun making this, and id love to see your results!
