A 5 mm (H) crochet hook

1 button

Tension / Gauge

13½ sts and 12 rows to 10 cm (4 inches)

measured over pattern using 5 mm crochet hook.

Pattern notes

US single crochet has 1 turning chain and so the stitch is worked into the 2nd chain from the hook.  Crochet terms are different in the US and UK.  I have given both versions in the pattern notes.

How to work a US single crochet (sc) stitch

Chain any number of stitches, plus 1 turning chain.  Turn.

Step 1

Miss 1 chain (turning chain).

Insert hook into the 2nd chain from hook.

Step 2

Wrap the yarn over the hook.

Step 3

Draw the yarn through the chain only.

Now you should have two loops on your hook

Step 4

Wrap the yarn over the hook again.

Step 5

Draw the yarn through both loops on the hook.

One US single crochet stitch is completed (plus the turning chain).

To make tablet cover

Using 5 mm (H) crochet hook, ch 28.

1st row: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, * 1 ch, miss 1 ch, 1 sc in next ch; repeat from * to end of row.  (14 sc)  Turn.

2nd row: 1 ch, * 1 sc in next 1-ch sp, 1 ch * repeat from * to end of row, ending with 1 sc in 1-ch at end of row.  (14 sc)  Turn.

Repeat 2nd row until work measures 60 cm (24 inches).

Fasten off.

To make up / Finishing

Lay your crochet wrong side up with last row at the bottom.  Fold up bottom 25 cm (10 inches), place wrong sides together and pin.  Sew side seams from the right side with overcasting stitches. The remaining 10 cm (4 inches) section at the top is for the flap. Fold flap over to front.   Using sewing thread the same colour as the yarn, sew on a button, and add a button loop to close the flap edge.
