Step 1: Getting Started

If you are one of the lucky peeps who received an iPad Mini or Kindle Fire for Christmas this past year or if you gave one as a gift – have I got the pattern for you! I was very blessed to receive an iPad Mini and it’s been so much fun! But…I didn’t have a cover or cozy or case. So necessity being the mother of invention, I came up with a crochet pattern to solve my dilemma.

In creating the pattern for my iPad Mini, I discovered the cozy dimensions also accommodate my husband’s Kindle Fire, which is awesome. It’s like getting two patterns for the price of one – sort of.  He's not much for hearts, but said I could make one for him in camo yarn.

I created the finished cozy pictured as a Valentine’s gift for someone special, so I chose reds and pinks from my yarn stash. But you could create this cozy in any color with all kinds of embellishments and easily personalize it for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for the mini-tablet junkie in your life! Enjoy.

Step 2: Pattern Instructions

Pattern Instructions:

Ch 21.

Rnd 1: Sc in 2nd chain from hook, sc 18, 3 sc in last ch. Turn work (working up other side of chain). Sc 18 on opposite side to end, 2 sc in last ch, sl st to 1st sc to join. (42 sts)
Rnd 2: Ch 2, hdc 42 around, sl st to 1st hdc to join. (42 sts)

Rnd 3 – 23: Repeat Rnd 2 (42 sts per rnd)

 

Flap

Row 24: Ch 1 turn, sl st 4. (This is a short row to reposition hook.)

Row 25: Ch 2, turn, hdc 22. (23 hdc)

Row 26 – 28: Repeat Row 25.

Finish, weave ends.

 

Loop Closure

With a sl st, attach yarn to last row of flap, in the middle. Ch 15, sl st to 1st ch to form loop. Finish, weave ends. Fold the flap down. With a stitch marker (or contrast color yarn) mark where to sew your button on, based on how far down the loop stretches. (See the image for an example.) I sewed my button on at Rnd 16, in the middle, so that my loop fastened to the button would keep the flap down nice and snug.

For a more secure closure, add another loop and button – spacing the two equal distances apart, along the flap. 

Embellishments

Here’s where it gets really fun! Use your imagination to embellish your cozy. I used this heart tutorial to make some darling little hearts to sew on the front of the cozy. You could also add buttons, ribbons, felt or even some embroidery to truly personalize this little creation!
