This free pattern for an e-reader case is great for newbie crocheters, as it uses just chains, double crochet and half trebles. It’ll make a great Christmas gift too, so even if you’ve been hooking for years you can whip up several in different styles as handmade gifts. Half treble stitches form solid front, back and flap sections that are joined with a contrasting blanket stitch in mustard yellow.
You can give decorative techniques a whirl too; make buttons a feature, not just a fastening, and use them to adorn the cute lollipop stalks on this case. Just three buttons, simple appliqué and a little embroidery transform a plain case into a must-make accessory that’s pretty and practical.
