crochet tablet cover - mosaic crochet and double crochet in turquoise and white

Design Inspiration

I needed a new tablet cover but wasn’t in love with those I found.  My mosaic crochet sample was waiting to be worked up and was the perfect fit for the width.

Although custom made for my tablet, this crochet tablet cozy measures 10” x 7” (plus a little bit of stretch) and would fit many other brands, including iPad and Samsung Galaxy Tab.

How the pattern is worked

One complete diamond mosaic pattern is worked before adding rows of double crochet (US single crochet) stitches.

A chain loop and crochet flower button is used to secure the opening and finishes off this project nicely for your one-of-a-kind crochet tablet cover.

The easy crochet flower is worked in rounds starting with a magic ring.

Crochet Tablet Cover Pattern Notes

  • You will need to know how to read a mosaic chart.  You’ll find all the information, including the free mosaic chart diagram.
  • The mosaic crochet pattern is worked row by row without turning your work.  More on the above link.
  • Once the diamond mosaic pattern is complete, you will be turning your work and crocheting in rows of double crochet (US single crochet).
  • You can choose to sew on a button to secure or crochet a flower/motif. 
  • Decide on the size you will be using and where you want to place it on the fabric before you crochet the chain in row 49. The size will determine the length of your crochet chain and how many stitches you skip.
  • If you would like to crochet a flower, we are sharing an easy flower crochet pattern.  This is worked in 2 rounds.
  • Stitch markers are used to denote where the chain loop to secure begins and ends.
  • When making the chain loop in row 49, fold fabric in half (width) and use stitch markers to denote either side and middle.
